what we’re working on
Calgary Urban Sustainablility Housing Renewal Project
in 2017 and 2018 Urban Matters CCC led a combined Urban Matters-Urban Systems team as a partner on a redevelopment plan for two City of Calgary affordable housing properties. The redevelopment will significantly expand occupancy, while also focusing on building more complete communities with access to supports and amenities for whole communities. The Urban team contributed a situational analysis, detailed housing needs assessment, and a financial analysis of options for redevelopment.
City of Richmond Homelessness Strategy
Along with BC Non-Profit Housing Association Urban Matters CCC is working with the City of Richmond to update their Homelessness Strategy. The stakeholder focused – co-creation project will focus on gap analyses, best practices reviews and finally strategy development.
