Good news! On July 11, Richmond city councillors unanimously approved all three recommendations from the Richmond PRC’s submission on non-market housing. City staff has been tasked to perform research and produce a report, which should be presented to council in the fall following the Oct. 15 municipal election.
In the meantime, work will continue on the campaign, with an upcoming event planned. If you would like to be involved in the RENT (Richmond Electors Needing Tenancy) campaign highlighting the urgent need for affordable housing in Richmond — a joint project between the PRC and the Richmond Food Bank — please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
