Should housing take over industrial land in Lower Lynn?

District of North Vancouver residents heard arguments about whether to replace light industrial properties with housing at a public hearing last week.

The North Shore News reports discussions including a statement by one presenter that “Replacing jobs with condos does not make a healthy community.”

“The proposal before council is a six-storey, 63-unit development at the corner of Mountain Highway and Charlotte Road, with six commercial units totalling approximately 5,600 square feet.”

“Council watcher Corrie Kost characterized the project as the “thin edge of the wedge” to wiping out light industrial in the area.”

Half of the proposed new homes would apparently meet the CMHC definition of affordability for for households with an income of $70,000.
