Let’s talk about a new homeless shelter

A BC Housing public information meeting regarding a proposed new homeless shelter will be held at the Seniors Activity Centre in Sechelt on Aug. 16, 5-7pm.

BC Housing and RainCity Housing invite the public to discuss the proposal to relocate the existing St. Hilda’s shelter to a new location at the northeast corner of the intersection of Ebbtide Street and Trail Avenue in Sechelt. The shelter would replace the existing St.Hilda’s shelter.

The proposed location would provide 40 shelter beds, with expanded support services, on District-owned land.

The information meeting is an opportunity for community members to learn about the project, review the preliminary plans and provide feedback.

BC Housing will be seeking a lease on the land and a temporary use permit for three years, with an opportunity to extend a further three years, from the District of Sechelt.

  1. As a long time community services volunteer your selected location on Lamprey Lane has always been you choice for the quiet low traffic and being so near to required resources for the sheltered users.
    My only hope is that the District of Sechelt “gets with it” and finally approves a dearly needed facility in our community.
    Too bad the seniors retirement projects have not been moved ahead after 2 or more years.
