6b. OBUC’s neighbours feel you are not listening to their concerns and issues, instead doing what you want. Is this true?

We understand the prospect of change of any kind is difficult, especially when there are various unknowns at this time and uninformed speculation. We are absolutely committed to thoughtful and meaningful consultation with our neighbours and the broader Oak Bay community. No final decisions have been made with respect to this affordable housing project.

The concerns and issues being raised are common ones with respect to affordable housing developments and we welcome this dialogue. More information regarding affordable housing is available here.

While we may not agree on all aspects of the project, we are committed to listening and will consider all input even if some suggestions cannot be accommodated.
