Update: The housing forum appears to be postponed due to city hall dysfunction, not an unusal occurrence in Saanich. Read Saanich News story.  

The District of Saanich is planning a Housing Forum on Saturday May 4, 10 am to 3 pm at the Garth Home Centre, 813 Darwin Ave.

Participants include “members of Council, community representatives, housing policy experts, market and non-market housing providers, representatives of stakeholder groups who need housing, and Saanich staff.”

Workshops include how to “best streamline housing projects, address community concerns about change, and to discuss how best to integrate new housing into existing areas.”

Funding for the forum is going before council on Monday April 8.

The draft agenda for the forum is here.
