The next 6 weeks are a critical moment for the future of the DTES. The City of Vancouver has released its draft Plan for the next 30 years. The Plan will decide who will be able to afford to live in the DTES and who will get pushed out.

The Plan goes to City Council on March 12, 2014. Should the low-income community support the plan? What can we do to take action? Come to a Town Hall Meeting at the Carnegie Community Centre to let us know what you think.

What will happen at the Town Hall Meeting?
Members of the Local Area Planning Process (LAPP) Low-Income Caucus and the Carnegie Community Action Project (CCAP) will start the meeting with a question: What do you want to see in a plan for the future of the DTES?

We’ll give a short presentation on key points on the LAPP. Then we’ll ask you which parts (if any) of the City’s Plan the Low-Income Caucus, and the community, should support.

We’ll end by planning actions leading up to the March 12th, when the Plan will go to City Council.
