This update of our NHS Demonstration and Research Project outline includes updates based on discussions we have had with the cities we have contacted.
- Some cities have expressed hesitation to participate because they do not have a budget to supply or a suitable lot in their inventory.
To address this we have suggested 3-year use of a lot, that would be returned after the project period.
- To address zoning by-law issues, we have proposed that a Temporary Use by-law would enable the project to operate during a 3 year period.
- We have also removed the gifting of the site in this version to a new cooperative. Should a city decide they would prefer that the project continues beyond the Research period, the coop proposal continues to be available.
