NANDU nuisance designation: In conversation with Sara Edmondson

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.

On January 24, People First Radio’s Joe Pugh visited the site at 264 Nicol to speak with Sara Edmondson, volunteer coordinator with NANDU.
