The CHBA-NL NIMBY Toolkit and presentation continues to be in high demand by community groups, municipalities and municipal associations.
The Association has been requested to present its contents and strategies for addressing and mitigating the NIMBY syndrome across the province.
On January 28th, CEO Victoria Belbin delivered a NIMBY presentation to Councillors and the Evision Committee with the Town of Paradise. On February 18th, she presented to the Northeast Avalon Joint Council at a meeting at the Town Hall in Topsail. Incoming President Warwick Butler joined Belbin for the presentation.
In 2014, the CHBA-NL CEO made audience specific presentations on NIMBY for different audiences, including: Urban Municipalities Council, NL Housing Corporation; City of St. John’s Council and Staff; and Local Faith-Based Organizations.
More presentations are currently scheduled for other municipalities and planning organizations interested in gaining a better understanding of the underlying issues. The Toolkit is located on the chbanl.ca/NIMBY website.
