A Letter From the President

November 15, 2017

Dear Neighbours,

We are honoured to be selected by the City of North Vancouver as the developer of the Harry Jerome Neighbourhood Lands, south of 23rd Street. This location represents an important opportunity to both celebrate the history of the lands and to build a lasting community space for generations to come.

I have lived on the North Shore my whole life and started playing minor hockey at the Harry Jerome Centre when I was 6 years old. I have a lot of great childhood memories at the Recreation Centre and I am sure the same could be said for many North Shore families. I truly believe that any development on this property should be focused on the needs of North Shore families and pay tribute to the legacy of Harry Jerome.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to create a new city park, with a dedicated Daycare, that will span the entire length of Lonsdale and offer housing choices that do not currently exist in the City of North Vancouver. Our focus is to put North Shore families first. This means providing a variety of housing solutions, including affordable rental, market rental and family-oriented homes.

We have created this website for convenient access to information on the project, details on the community engagement process and key project dates. We are committed to sharing the most up to date information to keep you involved and well-informed throughout the process.

We look forward to kicking off the community engagement process with an open house and encourage anyone who places parks, childcare and a variety of housing options as a priority to come out and have their voice heard. This first public consultation event will take place on December 6, 2017, 5:30pm to 8:30pm at the North Vancouver School District Offices, Mountain View Room. The consultation process will also be available online so that the community has easy access to information as well as to provide feedback.

Again, thank you to the City of North Vancouver for selecting Darwin for this important opportunity. And, I look forward to meeting and learning from you, and our North Vancouver neighbours, local community and area businesses over the next few months.
