On September 18th, at one of the last meetings before the Vancouver civic election, there will be a public hearing held on plans to allow duplex zoning in almost every city neighbourhood.
This is a final move by Mayor Gregor Robertson to add even more density, and in the future, the new council will consider further density with fourplexes and townhomes.
Some believe that these new types of housing in current single detached home zoned areas will be unaffordable for most residents - especially on Vancouver's west side. Duplexes on the west side are selling in the $2,000,000 to $3,000,000 range.
