To hear some people speak, it was all Kelowna City Council’s fault that the Agassiz supportive housing was even proposed.

In fact, it was B.C. Housing that bought the land on Agassiz Road (just behind Orchard Plaza mall) and applied to rezone it in order to build a 52-unit complex to help the homeless get off the streets.

Neighbour’s strongly opposed the project, largely on the grounds that it was a “wet” facility – meaning residents could consume drugs and alcohol on site.
