Housing Study to Be Reviewed by Council
Prince George, B.C.- What kind of housing will Prince George need in the years ahead?
That is the question a housing needs and demand study has tried to answer.
The report, to be presented to Prince George City Council this evening, notes the population is aging and households are getting smaller. It also notes families in Prince George are smaller, yet today’s family home includes more common areas and more bathrooms.
The report says the majority of housing stock in the City was built before 1980, and while most homes are in good repair, the designs are not as suitable or desirable for an aging population.
The Housing Study is one of the items on a relatively light agenda for Prince George City Council this evening.
There will be presentations to Council by the Railway and Forestry Museum and the Salvation Army. Council will make appointments to the Heritage Commission, and name Kathleen Soltis as the City’s rep on the Canada winter Games Host Society Board.
There is one formal public hearing which has a developer looking to extend a multiple residential zone in a housing development on Tyner Boulevard. Council will also be asked to extend the asphalt contract to Pittman Asphalt for one more year.
