Preserving Single Room Occupancy Stock Surrounding New St. Paul’s Hospital Site

On Tuesday Councillor Jean Swanson put forward a motion directing staff to explore ways to preserve our vital SRO stock that is in the proximity of the new St. Paul’s Hospital location on Station Street.

The motion passed with only 2 NPA Councillors in opposition. It asks for city staff to study and report back before construction begins on the new hospital. They are to focus on securing the low income units in SROs and other forms of housing within walking distance of the construction area.
