The District of West Vancouver is developing alternative housing “Pilot Project” program. In your mind, how do we support alternate housing forms while retaining community (neighbourhood) character?

There is no lack of large expensive homes in
Depending on size and a possible basement these could be built for as little as $100,000 to $150,000 since the land is already owned by the homeowner. This would add much needed affordable living to our areas. Certainly much cheaper than $900,000++ for something similar if a new development had to built to construct these in. The reduced cost to build would eventually be passed on to renters in the form of more affordable rent.
