These amendments are to allow ongoing electronic meetings post COVID-19 and to reduce the meeting quorum form 30 to 20 members in good standing.
Guest Presentation: Friends of Point Grey Village will provide an update on the status of the rezoning for the Safeway site on West 10th Ave. They will provide a summary of community feedback received on the preliminary plans that were released by the developer, Bentall GreenOak, in late May and early June. They will also lead a discussion on what sort of development is needed to add housing choice, community vitality, community services and economic prosperity for local businesses. Finally, possible action items to be taken by the Community Association will be discussed.
