The Duncan Housing Society will host a virtual community consultation meeting on Oct. 18 to provide information and gather input from the public on the controversial renewal project proposal at Duncan Manor.

The society submitted a rezoning application to the City of Duncan last month to allow the construction of a 133-unit affordable rental apartment building for seniors and persons living with disabilities at the site of the current Duncan Manor facility on First Street.

Some members of the community have raised objections to the possibility of losing a section of Centennial Park if the project proceeds as planned.

The society’s community consultation meeting on the project will be held from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. over Zoom on Oct. 18.

People looking to attend the meeting can contact with the email subject line “DHS Rezoning” and a Zoom link to the meeting will be provided.
