Dear Mayor Kennedy Stewart, Councilors and Housing Staff,

Re: CD-1 Rezoning: 3701-3743 West Broadway, at Alma St. Public Hearing

The Coalition of Vancouver Neighbourhoods (CVN) is opposed to the rezoning as proposed.

We urge you to listen to the affected neighbourhoods that are requesting this proposal not be approved and to allow for the applicant to instead bring forward the previous 6 storey 100% rental rezoning application that is currently on hold.

This is the clear message coming from the affected residents associations who are members of our coalition: West Point Grey Residents Association, West Kitsilano Residents Association, and the Upper Kitsilano Residents Association.

There also is a petition: No Tower @ Alma & Broadway, that currently has over 3500 supporters, and continues to grow.

This shows broad community opposition to the current proposal and it is the Coalition of Vancouver Neighbourhoods policy to promote neighbourhood-based planning with support for the positions of the local communities.

Thank you,

Larry A. Benge, Co-chair
Dorothy Barkley, Co-chair
