Hollyburn Mews: Public Information Meeting Tuesday May 10, 2011 and Public Hearing Monday May 16, 2011

The following notice was recently mailed out to the neighbourhood surrounding my proposed rezoning in the 2000 block Esquimalt, one block north of Marine Drive, next to the West Vancouver Seniors' Centre. However, anyone interested in this proposal is invited to attend these meetings.
Dear Resident/Property Owner

RE: Hollyburn Mews: Public Information Meeting

Geller Properties Ltd. is pleased to invite you to a Public Information Meeting to review
a proposal to redevelop the properties at 2031, 2047, and 2063 Esquimalt Avenue. If
approved by West Vancouver District Council, it would result in the construction of
three duplexes and three coach houses for a total of 9 new housing units, designed to
cater to West Vancouver residents who are ready to downsize, but wish to remain in the
neighbourhood.

The meeting will take place on:
Tuesday May 10th from 4:30 to 6:30 pm in The Audio-Visual Room, West Vancouver Seniors’ Centre
695 21st Street, West Vancouver

An informal Open House will be held from 4:30 to 5 pm. At 5 pm, a brief presentation
will be made following which the developer and members of the consultant team will
answer questions and look forward to your comments.

This meeting is being held by the applicant to inform the neighbours about the project
details and proposed bylaws prior to the District of West Vancouver’s Public Hearing.
West Vancouver Council has set the Public Hearing for
Monday May 16, 2011 at 7 pm in the West Vancouver Municipal Hall.

Details of the proposal and the accompanying staff report that was previously
considered by Council can be found at
http://gellersworldtravel.blogspot.com/2011/04/hollyburn-mews-before-west-vancouver.html
or on the West Vancouver Website.
For further information, please contact Michael Geller at 778 997 9980 or by email at
geller@sfu.ca, or Steve Mikicich, Senior Planner, West Vancouver Planning Department
at 604 925 7056 or smikicich@westvancouver.ca

We hope you can join us.

Brilliant! Awesome floor plans and I like the way access from the back works. This is what Vancouver needs desperately. Enough with the wasted land! I'll try and make it out to the hearing. Either way, I hope it gets through.

If you can't attend the meeting, I believe you can always send an e-mail to the attention of council voicing your support for the project.

I support this proposal for many reasons. It lets empty-nesters downsize without leaving their own neighborhoods. It's a better use of scarce residential land than the three big lots being replaced. It allows people to "live smaller", which is good for the environment. Just as most of us have switched to smaller cars in the last few decades, smaller homes is the logical direction we should be moving in for housing as well.

It seems that a half a dozen replies to this topic have disappeared. That's too bad.

Cameron, I agree...I'm not sure where they went!

Having read this I believed it was extremely informative.
I appreciate you finding the time and energy to put this content together.
I once again find myself spending a lot of time
both reading and leaving comments. But so what, it was still worthwhile!
