“Based on the agenda of the City of Vancouver’s Urban Design Panel on Wednesday (June 27), the development will have 38 housing units as well as 12 micro dwelling units above commercial spaces on ground level.” Those are the only details about the ‘development’ in the article cited below.
This ‘development’, the article does not note, is beside this capital-generating structure, and an important public space. Good thing I checked, because if you read @tlupick‘s article, I am already pissed off about this!
That was Millenium who is developing this ‘site.’ That’s relevant information
And it is Sacred, too – @cultrsaveslives drums there, often. The Survivor’s Totem, raised just 2 years ago, is a spiritual axis for the entire community. We remember our dead there. It is a very important place.
It is a history that needs no plaque but is not less real. It pursues us all fiercely
Right now, we need this building to be much more than is proposed. I urge you to reject this proposal.
