Join the Grandview Woodland Area Council for
A Discussion about the Future of Alma Blackwell
This Monday, September 13th at 7:00PM
The topic of this month’s meeting is the renovictions and demovictions of apartment buildings in Grandview as a direct result of changes in zoning.
Steve Bohus will provide us with a bit of the background and an overview of what’s been happening in Grandview since the Grandview-Woodland Community Plan was approved by Council, including the changes that were introduced only last April. These have had a profound impact on potential redevelopment of perfectly good mature housing stock.
After Steve’s summary, we’ll hear first-hand from the people who live at the 1970s Alma Blackwell development on Adanac Street, who are in danger of losing their current secure housing. Rather than repairing and maintaining the development and keeping their tight-knit community together, the society that manages their project, Entre Nous Femmes Housing Society, intends to demolish it and build new — taller buildings with smaller units.
