Prince George, B.C. – The Committee  of the Whole has a scheduled  meeting for  later today, and it will  focus on reports from a  number of  committees in the City.20141110_131303-1

From  housing and homelessness to  the City’s  100th Anniversary ,  Enhance P.G. to Accessibility,  the committees will be presenting their  reports  on the work  done in 2014,  and their respective  workplans for the year ahead.

The Homelessness and Affordable Housing committee has several   ideas on action that can be taken to increase  affordable housing in the City, including developing a housing reserve fund.

Funds could be garnered through contributions association with development applications, land sales and leases. The Committee calls for an assessment of city land holdings, and a detailed examination on existing bylaws to help reduce the barriers for the construction of affordable housing.

The  Committee of the Whole  can make recommendations on the work plans,  but City Council will  have the final approval when the same work is   presented to  Councillors  at that venue.
