FALSE PROMISES AT FALSE CREEK PETITION sign now

A Petition to Save the affordable housing promised for Athletes Village.

WHEREAS:

1. The original community-developed plan for the False Creek Athletes Village recommended that 2/3rds of the units be designated for affordable housing, a full half of which was to be social housing (deep core need);

2. This goal of 2/3rds affordable was approved by Vancouver City Council in 2005 in the ODP;

3. In March 2007 Mayor Sam Sullivan reduced the affordable housing component to 20\% in, and in April 2010, Mayor Gregor Robertson reduced it further to only 10\%, with at most 5\% accessible to those most in need;

4. In the midst of a crisis of homelessness and criminalization of poverty, Mayor Robertson is proposing that units intended for the poor be sold instead to police and other safety workers.

THEREFORE WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, DEMAND:

1. That the original goal of 2/3rds affordable housing in the Athlete's Village be met;

2. For a moratorium on selling off further units until a plan to meet the original goal is formalized.
