A historic decision is about to be made within a short time after 6:30 pm tonight. This deserves witnesses and full public attention, in person and/or online. Look them in the eyes.
As their last decision ever in a Council Meeting before the October 20 civic election, the current regime of Vancouver City Council is expected to debate and then vote on a hot topic at the Public Hearing.
Public Hearing resumes 6:30 pm, Wednesday, September 19. NOW
Item: 5. REZONING: Amendments to the Zoning and Development By-law for Most
RS Zones to Allow Two-Family Dwellings (Duplexes) to Increase Housing Choice

(Beware that in times like this the sound and video system has been known to “fail.”)
The usual sequence is staff responses to Council questions, then discussion, then each councillor explains their position and how they will vote, and then the vote.
IMPORTANT: Council Heather Deal and all Vision Vancouver members voted to postpone the rezoning of RT-7 and RT-8 Zones (Kitsilano) and RT-10 and RT-10N Zones (Kensington-Cedar Cottage) until some time after the new Council starts on November 5, 2018. Councillor Deal was looking at a speakers list of 100 people, and decided to move the referral. This effectively makes the topic an election issue and hands some baggage over to the new council to clean up.
6. REZONING: Amendments to the Zoning and Development By-law for RT-7 and
RT-8 Zones (Kitsilano) and RT-10 and RT-10N Zones (Kensington-Cedar Cottage)
