Christie Point Advocates Request Attendance at View Royal Council Meeting
View Royal, BC — Christie Point Advocates, a working group calling for a responsible and inclusive redevelopment of Christie Point, request the public’s attendance at a special View Royal Town Council meeting on Tuesday, June 13th at 7 pm when Council will read the formal rezoning application for Christie Point. Christie Point Advocates will also present their response to Realstar’s recent Relocation Support Package. They encourage View Royal residents, neighbours, and any other concerned parties to attend.
Christie Point is a 161-unit, 2-storey apartment rental complex located in View Royal, BC. Toronto-based owner, Realstar Management, submitted a rezoning application to the Town of View Royal last December. Realstar intends to redevelop the complex into 473 units, with buildings ranging from 4-6 storeys. Christie Point Advocates are concerned about tenant displacement, affordability of new rentals, and increased traffic to the area, amongst other topics.
The meeting includes a public participation period where people can express concerns regarding the redevelopment proposal. A public hearing on Realstar’s rezoning application is expected for June 27th. “This month’s meetings are our ‘last call’ for input and our attendance is imperative,” says CPA spokesperson Lisa Cole. “After the public hearing, Council will make their final decision and further public commentary will not be considered.” For more information on Christie Point Advocates, please visit www.christiepointadvocates.com.
