Housing under the microscope this week
Economic Development Cowichan is hosting a housing workshop late this week.
It’s for housing advocates, funding agencies, developers and local government representatives, but anyone else who is interested is welcome to attend.
Amy Melmock says the all day event will feature speakers on regulations, information on how developers are responding to affordable housing needs, and financing models….
Tickets, which are 25 dollars and include lunch, can be purchased through the Duncan Cowichan Chamber of Commerce.
On the day prior to the housing workshop, Avi Friedman, an internationally acclaimed architect and Canada’s housing guru will talk about home design, community development and sustainability as part of the CVRD’s Island Speaker’s Series.
