Expression of Interest in Non Profit Organization Use of District Owned Houses
The District of Oak Bay owns the houses at 1531 Hampshire Avenue (2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom) and 1538 Monterey Avenue (6 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms). The District's lease with the current non-profit operator of the rentals at those houses expires in early May 2022. Once the homes have been vacated, the District will undertake some basic repairs/maintenance to prepare the homes for new occupants. The District invites expressions of interest in one or both properties from non-profit operators positioned to provide supportive housing within the context of existing zoning for a lease term of up to 36 months, starting approximately September 2022. Long-term use of the properties will be determined following completion of the District's Village Area Plan.
Non-profit operators interested in one or both properties are invited to complete the following form and submit it prior to May 20, 2022. Following that, Council will review expressions of interest and determine next steps.
