Here is a look at the year ahead for planning in Vancouver. These areas above are the top priority areas for planning work in the City of Vancouver in 2015, as presented by Brian Jackson, General Manager of Planning and Development, as part of the staff presentation on the budget (24-Feb-2015). Information on some of these initiatives is available online now. Public participation will be important. Below is a starter list of links to the planning initiatives. We’ll add more as time permits and as they become available.
