Week in Civic Affairs May 25-29: Council, Public Hearing, Park Board. Trans Mountain Pipeline, rezonings, housing/homelessness report, Telus Garden sign, etc.

City Hall from Cambie StreetThree meetings of Vancouver City Council are scheduled for May 26 and 27 (Tues and Wed) 2015 — City Council, Public Hearing, and Committee. There’s also a Park Board meeting on May 25 (Mon). We have copied the council meeting agendas below for convenience.

The Park Board meeting (agenda, Monday, May 25, 7 pm) we have covered already: Park Board preview May 25th: Empire Fields Public Art proposal, speakers on motions on notice and more. (Great to say, Park Board meetings are now captured on live and archived web video.)

People are encouraged to scan the agendas for items of interest. We have highlighted a few.

Regular Council meeting on Tuesday, May 26 (9:30 am):

A major item for the City Finance and Services Committee on Wednesday, May 27 (9:30 am) is the Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion Proposal (TMEP) – Summary of Evidence.

The Public Hearing on Tuesday, May 26, (6 pm) includes these items. As of today, there is virtually no correspondence submitted. .

  1. 4062 Commercial Street (Florence Anderson House)
  2. 1749 Waterloo Street (Morrison Residence)
  3. 325 West 11th Avenue (Wakefield Residence)
  4. Amendments to the Zoning and Development, Licence and Street Vending By-laws to Allow Sampling and Sale of Local Liquor at Farmers’ Markets
  5. 555 Robson Street, 775 Richards Street and 520 West Georgia Street (Telus Block)
  6. 468 West 33rd Avenue, 4956 and 4958 Cambie Street
  7. 5648-5678 Victoria Drive
  8. 3819 Boundary Road (3680-3684 East 22nd Avenue). Regarding this one, we have written how the City and developer failed to post a rezoning sign. Apparently, two days after we exposed the violation, the sign showed up on the site, on May 21 (Thursday, just five days before the Public Hearing). CityHallWatch has written City Council recommending this item be removed from the agenda to provide proper notice for a future Public Hearing. Interestingly, the staff report gives scant mention of the 400 people who signed petitions against the project.

Agenda below.
