Important Dates for the Calendar

The Britannia Renewal project is moving ahead rapidly with a regular schedule of meetings and workshops. The next three are the following:

  • May 23, 7:00pm to 8:30pm:  Designing Safe Spaces.  Meeting in the Britannia Ice Rink Mezzanine. Speakers will discuss the design of spaces with two spirit, trans and gender variant, and women’s safety in mind.
  • May 27th, noon to 3:00pm: Public Outdoor Spaces Workshop.  Meeting in Gym D. Help imagine the kinds of public outdoor spaces the new Britannia could include.
  • May 29th, 5:00pm to 7:00pm. Housing on the Britannia Site. Meeting in B-Lab, Info Centre, Napier Street. There is a suggestion (perhaps even a requirement) that housing be included on the renewed site. What do you think about that?  Come along and debate the issues.

    They tore down 6 huge quadplexes along the lane to put up the library, elementary school gym, pool and so on.
    It would be a good thing if housing was put back.

    (You can see the housing that Britannia took over in the upper centre of this photo if you enlarge and zoom in: http://vintageairphotos.com/bo-47-1412/

    Templeton high school took 2 whole city blocks for its expansion and playing fields in the 1960s.

    You will be interested in Clare Shepansky’s work on the Britannia housing expropriation (https://open.library.ubc.ca/cIRcle/collections/undergraduateresearch/52966/items/1.0304240) which she completed as GHG’s intern for last year.
