NANDU nuisance designation - in conversation with Nanaimo Mayor Leonard Krog

On January 16, Nanaimo City Council declared the overdose prevention site on 264 Nicol Street a nuisance property after receiving a report from city staff detailing social disorder surrounding the site.

The site is run by the Nanaimo Area Network of Drug Users (NANDU), and the designation means that the city can impose cost recovery measures for visits from services like the RCMP, the fire department, or bylaw services.

One week after the designation, People First Radio Spoke with Nanaimo Mayor Leonard Krog to discuss the issue.
