NVD Council trade ideas on affordable housing

The North Shore News carried an article Saturday quoting North Van District Councillors on their ideas about affordable housing. You can find the whole article here:

The article quoted Councillors on the issue of selling district owned lots in town centres at a special meeting last Tuesday.

While in some cases opaque, the article is worth reading as we begin to get a sense of what the District will decide to do in Delbrook.

Delbrook footbridge to be demolished

Earlier this year the Delbrook Community Association wrote to the DNV raising concerns about a footbridge that connects Delbrook to the Delbrook Community Centre buildings. We are concerned that if the bridge is dangerous it should be better protected. We are particularly concerned that as it sits it is a magnate for children. We called for it to be repaired or replaced.

Last month the DNV responded saying “The Parks Department intends to dismantle the bridge this summer, and work with the context of the Delbrook Lands Planning process to determine the future for a bridge, and associated costs.” They continue they will wait until the planning process is completed.

For now, at least, the bridge is being left as it is. Hopefully saying “please keep out” is sufficient.
