Six-plex proposal moves forward
At today's policy committee meeting, Vancouver city council voted 9-2 to move the six-plex proposal ("Making Home") forward. Colleen Hardwick and Melissa De Genova were opposed.
City staff will prepare a detailed recommendation, which will then come back to council for approval later this year. For background info, see Why is "gentle density" so important?
