As part of the rezoning application process the City of Vancouver is organizing a community open house on Tuesday, June 26 from 430-730 pm. The Open House will be held in the Elm Room of the Trout Lake Community Centre, located at 3360 Victoria Drive. This open house will give local residents a chance to learn more about our building plans, ask questions and share any concerns they may have as we work closer to the public hearing proposed for mid October 2012.
