Jim is a community developer, housing activist, co-founder of the Portland Hotel Society and a Gastown resident since 1972. In 2003, he spearheaded the Woodward's redevelopment with the goal of creating "redevelopment without displacement." He feels the goal has been realized, and calls the project "a great victory for the Downtown Eastside."
