News Update—November 2021
While waiting for the complex political rezoning and funding processes to unfold, the GHS board is continuing with our project planning. We have met with our professional architectural team, to decide as much as possible of the technical detail, refining our site layout, building orientations and appearance, and dwelling floorpans.
To support our work we have continued to receive generous donations from this community:
- We are very grateful to the Gabriola Lions Club who have donated $5000.
- We also thank an anonymous community member who has donated to GHS through Canada Helps securities worth $50,000. By the time the securities were disposed of and the money transferred to GHS, it amounted to a donation over $56,000.
These generous gifts are allowing us to forge ahead with our affordable housing project planning while continuing our Housing Agreement bylaw discussions and preparing for an expected next round of funding from BC Housing in 2022.
