Temporary purpose-built winter shelter: Come give us your input Dec. 7

As a follow-up to our announcement yesterday about the 40-bed purpose-built winter shelter that will open from mid-December until the end of April 2016, we’d like to hear from you, the citizens of Abbotsford.

Typically, we’d hear you at 7:00 PM at MCA (Matsqui Centennial Auditorium); however, some time ago, before the plans for the shelter were brought forward, MCA was booked for another community event.

In order to make sure you receive all the information and have your opportunity to be heard, a Special Regular Council Meeting is set for December 7 at 4:00 PM in Room 530 (the boardroom on the fifth floor) at City Hall. The sole purpose of the meeting is to provide an opportunity for public input on the temporary shelter we announced yesterday, and to consider adoption of the related Housing Agreement Bylaw.

Please note that since both the time and place of the meeting are out of the ordinary (4:00 PM/Room 530); I will send reminders via Facebook and Twitter.

UPDATE: Here is  the link to the Housing Agreement and Development Variance report, which Council will discuss on Monday, November 30, one week prior to the Special Regular Council Meeting mentioned above: https://abbotsford.civicweb.net/document/47082
