Christie Point Advocates Encourage Attendance at View Royal Committee Meeting
View Royal, BC — Christie Point Advocates, a working group calling for a responsible and inclusive redevelopment of Christie Point, encourage residents, neighbours, and other concerned parties to attend View Royal’s special Committee of the Whole (C.O.W.) meeting on Wednesday, February 15th at 7 pm at the Songhees Wellness Center.
Christie Point is a 161-unit, 2-storey apartment rental complex located in View Royal, BC. Toronto-based owner, Realstar Management, has submitted a rezoning application to the Town of View Royal. Realstar intends to redevelop the complex into 473 units, with buildings ranging from 4-6 storeys. Christie Point Advocates are concerned about displacement, affordability, and increased traffic to the area, amongst other topics.
This special Committee of the Whole meeting includes a public participation segment where people can express their concerns regarding the redevelopment. As Christie Point Advocates state on their website, “when any form of development plan is proposed, it is crucial for all points to be considered and all voices to be heard before any major decisions are made.” According to spokesperson Lisa Cole, “This meeting is the perfect opportunity for people to show up and speak up regarding the project – while they still can.” For more information on Christie Point Advocates, please visit www.christiepointadvocates.com.
