City of Vancouver Council
Dear Mayor Kennedy Stewart and Councillors,
Re: Referral Reports –Item 6. CD-1 Rezoning: 3084 West 4th Avenue and 2010 Balaclava Street
The Coalition of Vancouver Neighbourhoods (CVN) believes that it is important that local communities have the opportunity to participate in meaningful consultation on proposed changes within their neighbourhoods. As such CVN supports the efforts of the West Kitsilano neighbourhood groups (West Kits Residents Association, We Love Kits) as they seek time for further discussions with the various parties involved in the proposed project for West 4th Avenue & Balaclava.
As a part of this support, we join them in asking that Council delay the referral of this Report to Public Hearing for the requested time period (to Feb. 23/21) in order to give the parties involved time to complete their discussions before proceeding to Public Hearing.
We thank you for your consideration.
