Council to Look at Transitional Housing Proposal for Downtown Motel
Prince George, B.C. – A rezoning application will be before Mayor and Council this evening, one that looks to change the zoning for a property on 3rd Avenue to allow for an affordable transitional housing project.
The application is coming from the Association Advocating for Women and Children, and would see the motel at 1915 3rd Avenue turned into a 30 unit housing project. The proposal would see the existing facility changed to provide caretaker-outreach offices, a communal kitchen, laundry and space for health services.
This is the preliminary stage in the rezoning application process. Council will be asked to grant the first two readings and then there would need to be a public hearing on the proposal before any final approval could be given.
Also on the agenda for this evening’s regular meeting of Council:
- Public hearing on proposed change to the Official Community Plan and a rezoning to allow for the expansion of a liquor retail outlet at Highway 97 and Monterey Road
- Gateway Business Improvement Area budget for 2017 projects
- presentation from Starlane area residents for new playground equipment in the neighbourhood park
