Our guest speaker will be Professor Patrick Condon, the UBC James Taylor Chair in Landscape and Liveable Environments, with his presentation:
It’s all about the Dirt! – Why new density is a good thing, but unfortunately won’t lower prices
Much of current city policy, as embodied in the Broadway plan and the city-wide Vancouver plan is based on the presumption that insufficient housing supply is the reason for high prices.
Solution? Upzone the whole city for massive potential population and housing unit increases. Sadly, if your objective is more affordable housing, there is little evidence that this will help.
Come discuss the way forward for Vancouver with Professor Condon and GWAC.
