The West Point Grey Residents Association (WPGRA.ca) is hosting a Public Information Meeting about the Jericho Lands Development
Time: 7pm on Wednesday April 29, 2015
Location: Jericho Hill Gym at 4180 West 4th Avenue
The featured speaker will be Mr. Robert Howald, the Executive VP of Canada Lands Company, the agency charged with the task of developing the 52 acre federal lands eastern half of the Jericho Lands. Local MLA David Eby will also be present to speak about the western half of the Jericho Lands owned by the Province of BC.
For more information please see WPGRA.ca or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Reportedly David Eby recently sent an email about news on the provincial portion. The province is looking at completing a sale without first consulting the public.
One question: If the Jericho Lands are fully built out, how many people will that be, and how will it affect the City of Vancouver’s population goals for 2040 under the Regional Growth Strategy. Will it relieve pressure on other neighbourhoods, so their totals can be reduced?
