Council Approval Date Changes
The call for development proposals for alternative housing at Bechtel closed October 7th. A team of staff from relevant departments, including housing and finance, are evaluating the proposals according to the design guidelines approved by Council and informed by community input. The guidelines require developers to consider:
- Where the new units will be located in proximity to the existing buildings;
- How the new units will blend with the existing buildings; and
- How landscaping and community spaces will be incorporated.
The proposal that best meets these guidelines will go to Committee of the Whole on November 17th and Regional Council on November 25th for final approval.
The developer will gather design input from the Bechtel community in December and/or January.
