Why are we making these rezoning proposals?
The short answer is that Bowen Island needs more alternative housing forms, needs more affordable housing, needs the option for independent/supportive living, needs further stimulation to the local economy — all of which address core values/objectives in Bowen’s three Official Community Plans. The proposals for Parkview Slopes and Seymour Landing provide an opportunity to address those needs and to implement several of Bowen’s core values as stated in the Official Community Plan.
