Say YES to Modular Housing
We support modular housing in Marpole. We can't afford to say no to real solutions.
The Marpole project comes in the midst of a housing crisis and includes the first 78 of 600 modular units that will be built on vacant or underutilized sites across the city in a partnership between the new B.C. NDP government and the city of Vancouver.
The Onni Group development company is loaning the Marpole site for two temporary buildings that will house 78 residents who currently live in the area but do not have homes or are at risk of losing their homes in the near future. Priority will be given to the people already living in the Marpole area who are over 45, homeless, and those with disabilities, including some who use wheelchairs.
A team from B.C. Housing, the city, and the housing operator will select residents, who will get access to health and support services.
The site will be managed by the professional nonprofit Community Builders Group, which has 15 years of experience in providing support to people with a variety of needs. They will manage the modular buildings 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The modular units are a quick and effective way to provide desperately needed, self-contained housing units for homeless and low-income Vancouver residents while long-term social housing is being planned and built.
THIS IS GOOD NEWS. Show your support by signing the petition!
