OUR Candidates’ Platform—Land Use Planning and Development

As part of their platform, OUR candidates—Richard Alexander, Charles Menzies and Shaohong Wu—commit to seeking a greater role for residents in land use planning and development for the neighbourhoods.
The candidates have adopted the following positions:
·       Residents should have an integral role in the formulation and amendment of land use and neighbourhood plans, and in the approval of individual development proposals.
·       The UNA should take the lead in bringing about this increased resident involvement.
·       Resident positions on planning and other bodies should be filled by UNA appointees, who should report regularly to the UNA.

Our Candidates

Richard Alexander

"I believe in community involvement. We have new residents, many new to Canada, who can and should participate in our community and make it a better place to live. While on the UNA, I will reach out to strata councils, faculty, staff and students who live in the area to become engaged in their community through UNA committees and sponsored activities. I am running for UNA Board to represent the rapidly developing South Campus area and to encourage owners and residents to become engaged with their community." 

Charles Menzies

“I’m a strong supporter of community-based democracy. As the former chair of the Schools Action Committee of the University Neighbourhoods Association at UBC I have advocated on behalf of our community for appropriate school and community facilities. We are at a crossroads where increased development is putting the livability of our community at risk. Now is the time to act prudently and considerately to ensure that our community stays livable.”  

Shaohong Wu

"As a resident of U-Town, I share my neighbors concerns about our environment and quality of life. I am committed to UNA's vision of a democratic self-governing community. I am confident that my engineering background, professional management expertise, leadership skills, and my in depth understanding of and extensive experience in collaborating with people from multiple cultural backgrounds will enable me to contribute to the fulfillment of UNA's vision and help make our U-Town a more democratic and livable place."
