I'm looking for some community support to help bring awareness to a situation that concerns my house and home: Development proposal, 6010-6050 Oak.
I live in 5990 Oak, which is immediately north of the assembled lots. I've lived in this area for over 20 years, and while I recognize the value of urban densification, I believe it should not be at the cost of the residents who grew up in the neighbourhood.
If you drive by my home, you'll notice a row home project about 3/4 completed immediately to the north of my house. If the rezoning/development on 6010-6050 Oak gets approved, my single family dwelling will be dwarfed and squeezed on both sides by larger, taller, and more heavily populated projects, negatively impacting my living conditions: more noise, more garbage, more people, less parking.
Sure, it's easy to say 'Why don't you just move out?', but as we all know, housing prices in the City of Vancouver aren't exactly friendly to the pocketbook, and the Buyer hasn't even come to the table with a market offer to purchase.
I have attached a single-page PDF that I have prepared to outline my situation and what I believe are the negative consequences of allowing the development to proceed. Please have a read and please share and distribute it as you see fit. Reject5917.pdf
If you agree with this position, please take the time to leave some feedback for the City to REJECT the proposal at: feedback page.
Please also let me know your thoughts and suggestions.
I appreciate your support.
