Social Media Package for 105 Keefer Petition

Sample Facebook post:

Beedie’s 105 Keefer project endangers the heart of Chinatown. Directly adjacent to the site is the monument remembering the sacrifices of Chinese Canadian workers and soldiers. Further, every market housing unit threatens to further displace the community’s predominantly low income residents. #StopBeedieAt105

Beedie Living發展商已第三次更改他們的土地用途更改申請及在2016年4月16日已經提交他們的項目申請給溫市市政府。

最新個申請包括(詳情請參閱市府網頁(但英文)):

  • 119 市價私人柏文單位(賣)
  • 25 社會房屋單位為長者
  • 1,000 呎的長者文化空間,計劃是廉價出租給一個社區團體

Beedie Living has revised its rezoning application for the third time and submitted its application to the City of Vancouver on April, 16, 2016.

The revised application includes (for more information see here):

  • 119 market units
  • 25 social housing units for seniors
  • A 1000 sq ft seniors’ cultural space, proposed to be rented to a community group for 10 years at a reduced rate

因各種原因(看下面的反對信範例),唐人街關注組仍然是反對該土地用途更改申請。

25 SH Units - Meme (Chinese)

第一個主要的原因是,對於被一些人視為華埠的核心地块,該發展根本不夠好。該幅地可以有為更好的方法為社區開發。我們在這幅地想見到的發展就是100%低收入長著房屋至少一樓全層為社區公共空間為社交活動及培養跨代性的關係等等。

第二個主要的原因是,這樣的項目(大多數是市價房屋)只會增加在唐人街貴族化的危機。貴族化已增加在該區的發展壓力,以及增加周圍的地價及租金。最明顯的後果就是不少服務低收入及勞工階層社區的商業被逼遷。與此,住在華埠的長者越來越小選擇去買菜及其它他們需要的日常用品

The Chinatown Concern Group remains opposed to this rezoning application for a variety of reasons (see template letter below).

25 SH Units - Meme

The first major reason is that, for a location that is considered by some as the “heart of Chinatown,” the development simply is not good enough.  This site can and must be developed in a much better way for the community.  We want to see 100% low-income housing for seniors at this site as well as at least an entire floor of community space for social activities, to foster intergenerational relationships etc.

The second major reason is that such a project, with majority market housing, will only contribute to the gentrification crisis in Chinatown, which is increasing development pressure in the area, land values, as well as rents.  As a result, most visibly, we are seeing the displacement of low-income and working-class serving businesses in Chinatown, leaving elderly residents fewer and fewer choices for food and other daily necessities.

我們預計Beedie將快會再提交一個更新的發展申請,但我們不會只等見到新申請才行動因爲我們知道新申請始終會不足,不能滿足社區的訴求或這重要地點應有的發展。我們認為重要的第一步是將這幅地交給公眾手中,所以這運動的下一步就是要求三級政府合作去先收購這幅地,以作爲社區來發展(如:低收入長者房屋和文娛俱樂部,尤其是為長者服務)。

We are anticipating a revised application from Beedie but we aren’t sitting idle until we see that application because we know it will fall short from what the community needs and what should be at this significant site.  We see an important first step is for this site to be in public hands so our next step in this campaign is to demand all three levels of government to work together to acquire the site for a community development (i.e. low-income seniors housing and an intergenerational community space with a special emphasis for seniors)

這運動的一部分是一個請願書向三級政府。一份網上的請願書還在籌備中。填完的請願書可以交給關注組,加麗基社區中心(“緬街圖書館”,緬街401號)二樓辦公室。

One aspect of this campaign is a petition to all levels of government.  An online petition is to come.  You can return completed petitions to Chinatown Concern Group, 2/F Carnegie Centre (401 Main St.)
