The Braidwood housing project topped the list of strategic priorities which members of Courtenay council approved Monday at committee of the whole.

The City is inviting non-profit societies to submit proposals for the design, development and operation of an affordable or supportive housing project at 810 Braidwood Rd. Submissions need to be received by May 19.

Other priorities for the current council term are a flood study, downtown revitalization, Complete Street pilot project options and the development process.

Complete Streets refers to an approach to designing roads to ensure accessibility to all modes of transportation, and to people of all ages and abilities.

Topping the list of strategic possibilities is a resolution to the Maple Pool lawsuit. Direction is to be determined based on legal advice.
