Survey: Responsible Drinking in City Parks - Pilot Project

The City of Chilliwack is preparing to launch a pilot project that will allow responsible alcohol consumption in permitted spaces in Vedder and Crossing parks. After the bylaw is adopted at the August 18 Council meeting, this pilot project will run until October 31 of this year and permit responsible drinking in these locations from noon to 9 pm daily.

Neighbourhood Grant Program

Great cities are built on the foundation of strong neighbourhoods. Since residents often know just what is needed to enhance the quality of life in their neighbourhoods, the Neighbourhood Grant Program has been developed to support residents and organizations that have small but powerful ideas that will bring people together and enhance neighbourhoods.

Housing Needs in Chilliwack Survey

The City is undertaking a Housing Needs Report to identify current and future housing needs in our community over a 5-year period or more. The report will focus on affordability and demand for all housing types, including government-assisted and market housing. By identifying the number of housing units needed, by type and price range, the report will provide direction to government, non-profit, and private sectors, in the planning and provision of housing, and help inform local plans, policies and development decisions.
