The City of Nanaimo is currently developing an Affordable Housing Strategy that, once approved by Council, will set the priorities for the City of Nanaimo to address affordability across the housing continuum over the next ten years.
The City of Nanaimo is planning improvements to the transportation network of the Brechin Hill area. Specifically, Estevan Road and Princess Royal Avenue will see a variety of improvements from Brechin Road to Terminal Avenue occurring in two phases.
Coming in 2018! A proposed 0.5km pedestrian and cyclist route through Harewood Centennial Park that will connect Georgia Avenue between Sixth Street and Seventh Street. It will include a new asphalt multi use path, a new pedestrian and cycling bridge over the Chase River, new LED lighting, and new intersection crossing improvements.
We are reviewing our current Heritage Conservation Program to ensure that the priorities and partners are still relevant, and determine how we can work better with our partners and the community to conserve Nanaimo's heritage.
The City of Nanaimo is partnering with BC Housing and Pacifica Housing to develop 44 new units of supported housing for the homeless.
The Port Drive Waterfront Master Plan will set the framework for more detailed future planning directions for this important waterfront area, including future land use, transportation, servicing, open space, trails and environmental protection, within the plan area.
Council has made a commitment to develop a plan that will outline how an extended waterfront walkway can be completed in a timely manner as well as complete five small, but important sections of the walkway in 2018. This project is one of five key projects identified in the 2016-2019 Strategic Plan.
