What are some of the important housing issues in Electoral Areas B, D and F?
Is it affordability? What about accessibility and availability?
These are some of the questions the CSRD is trying to answer by conducting a Housing Needs Survey for those areas.
To understand your needs, the CSRD would like to hear from residents of these areas. Electoral Area B is rural Revelstoke, Area D encompasses Ranchero, Falkland, Deep Creek and the Salmon Valley, while Electoral Area F is the North Shuswap.
The survey is available online at the CSRD website: www.csrd.bc.ca/csrd-connect
It is being conducted by Urbanics Consultants Ltd. and is designed to develop a better understanding of the current and emerging housing needs of the Regional District.
The work is being supported by a $45,000 grant from the Union of BC Municipalities. The funding is designed to help local governments meet new provincial regulations requiring local governments to complete Housing Needs Reports which evaluate housing needs in their areas and develop policies that would be included in a community's Official Community Plan.
Electoral Areas within the CSRD are each experiencing different population trends that will impact how to approach housing policy. The survey will help identify needs or issues which are specific to these various Electoral Areas.
If you have any questions or concerns related to the survey, please contact Brendan Dawe at Urbanics Consultants Ltd. at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
