Without question, there have been some NIMBY voices in the crowd, but the vast majority of voices raised in opposition to this application thus far have legitimate non-NIMBY reasons.
You may disagree with some of the reasons detailed on this website, or have entirely different concerns about the rezoning, but if you would like Whistler’s Council to deny this application and instead focus on appropriate, affordable, and attainable housing that is consistent with our Official Community Plan, please take a moment to review the information on this website and sign our petition.
Alternatively, send an email to our Mayor and Councillors to let them know that you do not support this rezoning application. If you are a member of the Whistler community, your voice matters:
Proposed OCP amendments or rezonings that increase the bed-unit capacity of the Municipality will only be considered if the development is supported by the community, in the opinion of Council.
