Member engagement opportunity: Shaping the future of the Xwemelch’stn Housing Project

Hiy̓ám̓ Housing – Xwemelch’stn Housing Project Community Engagement – Phase 1

The Hiy̓ám̓ Housing Society is seeking member input to help shape the future of the Xwemelch’stn Housing Project, a 94-unit affordable housing project for the Squamish People.

The engagement will be completed in two phases. In Phase 1, members are asked to provide their ideas about the building expression, proposed co-op store and garden areas, to help the Project’s design team ensure Squamish values and Stories of Place are upheld. In Phase 2, there will be opportunities for Squamish Nation artists to submit their work.

How to participate in Phase 1:
