City of Vancouver Leasehold Co-op Meeting – 1

The City approved a lease renewal framework in February 2017, but no co-op has been able to come to an agreement with the City since then under that framework. It’s time for a reset! CHF BC is inviting the co-ops that have leases with the City to attend meetings to review the current situation and re-calibrate our positions. Given that there are about 20 co-ops with short-term or ground rent leases and another 30 with longer-term agreements, it makes sense to hold a couple of meetings. The first meeting will take place on January 29th, and we look forward to talking together to see how best to proceed in 2019. We know this is still a critical issue for many of our members. We encourage all co-ops on the list below to send a representative or two. For now, we intend the meetings to take place at the CHF BC offices on Commercial Drive at 7:00 pm (doors to open at 6:30 pm). If we need more space, we will change the location to accommodate more people.
