This neighbourhood is not the right one for a “wet facility”.
I’m not opposed to a facility that helps people get back on their feet. One that allows residents to openly use illegal drugs is NOT helping the majority of them; it is encouraging them, ENABLING them, to stay in their addictive lifestyle.

I have been against this proposal from the moment the notice came advising us of this project. I am even more against now since I have been reading all the info that has been brought to light about this proposal.
The City' objective to clean up the downtown area so they can pat themselves on their backs and say what a good job they have done to make it safer for tourists etc.. Be damned about us and our neighbourhood. Well I hope they will be just as willing to pat themselves on the back when things start to go wrong with this project because things will. But what concern is it to them -- none. They get their wish granted to get the downtown area cleared up, and that is all that matters them.

I am concerned about the effect it will have on family members I have living in the Ambrosi neighbourhood!

If this facility was built in a more suitable location it would be a benefit not only to the people who need it but to the community as a whole. This location provides a benefit to some but will be to the detriment of others. The city needs to find a location that is a win-win, particularly when it involves senior residents who have contributed economically and financially to their community. They stand to lose security, peace of mind and value of their homes.

There are lots of pros and cons, but the main reason for me is that it has gone against a covenant put on it by the church. Unless there are other facts I don't know about, this shows that this has not been respected, which should mean it is illegal.

I am opposed to the construction of this “combination Homeless /addiction “ unit.
Homelessi could support - combined is not feasible. I recently moved from a city that constructed a seniors housing unit - however when the initial owners turned it over to Provincial Housing - it became home to anyone in need of a roof over their head. The Seniors who initially lived in the units did not feel safe and were quickly moved by family to other senior residences. The building is now overrun with druggies and homeless - and is a sore eye within the city. Sure yours will be monitored for a few years - but what happens when the funds evaporate ? Or when the addicts no longer are monitored. You cannot convince me the outcome will be different. The City wanted in on Government funding and will do whatever it wants to get the money. Thing is - that it is the taxpayers money & we should haveasayin where & how our money is spent. Our Condo values will immediately
fall - and who is to blame? The City of Kelowna. We live in this city & pay taxes - and most put their life savings into our Condos - so we can lose our investment? Totally unacceptable! The city wanted this parcel of land the minute the church sold it to a n entrepreneur - who was given the run around getting permits to built - to the point he gave up and sold to the city. The City of Kelowna - who had no respect for the agreement the initial buyer had with the church & the conditions he accepted when he bought the property.

It seems that some of the other suggestions for this site are much more appropriate to the area.
And why has there been little to no consultation with area residents?

Our main objection is the WET facility. There hasn't been this type of facility put up in a high density neighbourhood, previously, let alone among over 700 seniors. We need to walk by this to get to the mall - stores, pharmacies, Drs offices, cinema, etc. This will attract additional addicts and dealers as the residents who use will be allowed to inject in the facility - in a common room and in their own private rooms. Those opposing us call it NIMBY, but it's much more than that. It's downright wrong - wrong location, wrong type of 'support' - there is no rehabilitation attached to this. The city and the province are using this as a quick-fix - there was no Due Diligence done with the neighbourhood prior the purchase of the land (which was twice the assessed value).

I don't want it in my backyard. Build it somewhere else, preferably farther away from my house.
