Bicycle on the sidewalk. Nice.
There’s a pick-up in the middle of the road so it evens out.
This project is just sad. What a missed opportunity.

Truth in advertising.
A special meeting will be held on January 21 to discuss general social housing issues in the neighbourhood with Cool Aid and other operators:
Per the BGCN:
This special community meeting is an opportunity for community members to learn about a revised Community Commitment Agreement which outlines commitments from BC Housing and the operators of various shelters and supportive housing facilities to mitigate issues in the Burnside Gorge neighbourhood. The idea for an agreement was proposed by Minister Robinson in late 2017 in response to increasing tensions in the neighbourhood. A Community Advisory Committee (CAC) was formed to develop the agreement.
Cool Aid's message to the Burnside Gorge community about Crosstown Phase 1 can be read on the final page of the January e-news at this link: http://www.burnsidegorge.ca/sites/default/files/BGCN%20Jan2019_E-news.pdf
Over 150-units of affordable apartments, retail spaces and offices are part of a proposal to redevelop the Tally-Ho Hotel property on Douglas Street near Finlayson Street.
