Re: “New residential development a lifeline for Oak Bay church,” Dec. 28.
Kudos to Oak Bay United Church and B.C. Housing for collaborating on a proposed affordable housing development of the church land in Oak Bay.
It is long overdue, given the ongoing, disastrous, local and national affordable-housing crisis, that churches and other institutions sitting on and/or owning tracts of land use that resource for affordable housing. By doing so they are able to meet their goals.
Now it is up to us in their surrounding communities to support making their initiatives work.
