🏘️🏢 Bill 23 Municipal Housing Pledge
HELD by Kungl (at Nuttall's request)
Recommending to endorse the Municipal Housing Pledge and submit it to the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing prior to March 1, and that staff in Development Services report back to Council on a semi-annual basis on the progress towards the pledge.
The pledge sets Barrie's municipal housing target at 23,000 units by 2031
Nuttall had held for discussion only. Wanted to emphasize that 1) the city wasn't really being given a choice, and 2) the only commitment the city could offer was for permitting – the city doesn't build housing
Motion CARRIED [FOR: Riepma, Nixon, Kungl, Thomson, Nigussie, Harvey, Harris, Morales, Hamilton; AGAINST: Courser]
Meeting concluded on time, no need for carry-over after City Council.
