Council approves permit for transitional housing at 397 Third Avenue

Prince George city council has approved a temporary use permit for 397 Third Avenue, the site of a proposed transitional housing facility by BC Housing.

In January, council approved the site preparation costs, which included grading work and site service connections. BC Housing’s proposal for the site includes 43 units for overnight sheltering with additional amenity/storage trailers and washroom facilities.

The report to council states the transitional shelter facility will be staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This temporary supportive housing project also includes safety and security measures such as regular walk-throughs of the property, fencing, lighting, and security cameras.

The supportive housing temporary use permit is valid for up to three years. Along with the approval of the temporary use permit was the lease agreement and servicing agreement between the city and BC Housing.
