To discuss the different options available, the Sea to Sky communities, the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, Whistler Housing Authority and Smart Growth B.C. are hosting a public forum on housing choices on Wednesday, May 9. The forum will take place at MY Place from 7 to 9 p.m., to be preceded by a tour of the Beaver Flats residential development at 5 p.m.

Speakers for the evening including Patrick Condon of the UBC Design Centre for Sustainability, who will discuss neighbourhood alternatives; Heather Tremain of Resource Rethinking Building will speak on building design and choice; Ronaye Matthew of Cohousing Development Consulting will present alternative tenant arrangements; and Whistler Mayor Ken Melamed will discuss how housing innovations can be applied in the Sea to Sky corridor
