Density bank, transfers, and more

Vancouver has a system of banking and transferring “density.” This is a hot topic and very important for the operations of our city and impacts on communities. Here we will compile info and resources to help citizens wade through the issues. CityHallWatch is calling for complete transparency and public accounting for transactions under this system.

To begin with, here are links to a variety of official information.
