DELTA, B.C. — The City of Delta, B.C. is asking residents for their thoughts on possible housing strategies for the second round of virtual public engagement to develop the city’s housing action plan.
The city started the project last year to begin addressing its current and future housing needs. The project’s first phase included completing a housing needs assessment, which combined comments from residents and stakeholders to get an idea of Delta’s current housing situation and help identify urgent housing needs. For the second phase, officials are now collecting community input on possible strategies and actions over the next five years to help address local housing needs.
“This virtual engagement session will give the community another opportunity to safely engage with the city and provide meaningful input on the Housing Action Plan,” said Mayor George Harvie in a press release. “We want to hear from a variety of perspectives so we can develop a housing plan that is supported by the community and provides options for everyone, including youth, seniors and the most vulnerable.”
The virtual consultation process can be accessed by residents and businesses via a feedback form at letstalkdelta.ca/housingactionplan.
This page also features a new video explaining the possible strategies as well as the Housing Action Plan timeline to help inform the community.
After the second virtual consultation wraps up, the input received will be used to help develop a draft plan. The draft plan is expected to be presented to Delta council in spring 2021 for consideration and will be followed by a final round of virtual public consultation.
