CAMPBELL RIVER, BC – Affordable housing is one of the main concerns residents have.
As such, the Strathcona Community Health Network and the Coalition to End Homelessness are inviting residents to learn more about affordable housing in the region.
According to a release from the Strathcona Community Health Network, homelessness and lack of affordable housing affects many people, including families, seniors, young adults, seasonal employees, college students, as well as vulnerable members of the population.
Members of the Campbell River community are invited to share ideas, thoughts, and concerns about affordable housing by leaving comments on the Housing Ideas Walls located at the library, the Sportsplex, and the city hall.
The Housing Ideas Walls will be up from May 17th to May 31st.
Community members are invited to contribute their ideas and put them on the walls, which will encourage them to think about the types of housing they’ve lived in, the housing they live in now, the kind of housing needed in the future, as well as giving feedback on what they feel is missing.
There is also an interactive engagement session on Thursday May 23rd from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Campbell River Seniors’ Centre (1414 Ironwood St).
