Hello Friends and Neighbours,
Some community announcements and coming events, plus an update on the Ming Sun building.

Look for some important updates in the near future regarding the Strathcona/DTES Local Area Plan, including a citizen-led symposium on heights, densities and built form in lieu of our scheduled SRA meeting January 8, followed by a City-led built form study workshop regarding proposed heights and densities in the Local Area Plan on January 11. The Local Area Plan is scheduled to go before council mid-March.

Best Wishes for a Happy Holidays!

Hello Friends and Neighbours,
I've just returned from a press conference regarding a 122 year old building under threat of demolition THIS COMING MONDAY. Present were several generations of Chinese-Canadians and Japanese-Canadians, as well as a younger generation of artists and housing activists who explained their frustration over the fate of a well maintained and historically significant building that has been providing Single Resident Accommodation and affordable artist space.

Hello, Strathcona friends and neighbours.

As we're easing into the holiday season and the nights are getting darker and colder, we thought it would be nice to turn our next meeting into something more of a social - and we're inviting folk to bring some snacks to share and have an opportunity to meet and chat with neighbours, afterwards, we'll be heading to the (new) nearby Emerald at 555 Gore for some drinks (the Emerald is a restaurant, so kids are welcome) .

Some upcoming events that should be of interest to neighbours.

The next seven days see the return of the Eastside Culture Crawl; Deck the Dark an innovative and fun new project to bring people together and illuminate Maclean park (just in time for the holidays!) and an SFU City Conversation pitting a former city planner versus an architect/developer over the City's Local Area Plan for Strathcona and the DTES and "who should live here".

Hello, Strathcona friends and neighbours.

This is the first of two newsletters this month, as we have some important news and updates to share with you.

The days are getting shorter, and this weekend is the 6th Annual Harvest Festival (Sunday in McLean Park). The Harvest Fest is always a highlight of the Strathcona year, (and there's pie!). More on their website, and below.
