Vancouver City Council is set to meet on September 29th and 30th while Park Board will hold a regular meeting on Monday, September 28, 2015. Park Board will review a report on the $450,000 controversial “Home and Away” installation proposed for Hastings Park. A report will be considered on the proposed Ironman 5i50 Vancouver Triathlon for July 2016 in Stanley Park and Coal Harbour.

Proposed Hastings Park installation ‘Home and Away’

The final decision on the First Shaughnessy Heritage Conservation Area (HCA) will likely be made at the Regular Council meeting on Tuesday, September 29th. The Public Hearing on this item started on July 21, continued on July 28 and finished on September 15th. While City Council usually only allows for participants to speak only once at a Public Hearing, in this case, speakers were allowed to speak for a second time. Those opposed to the HCA often claimed that the resale value of their pre-1940s homes would be negatively impacted if there were to be a freeze on redevelopment. Other speakers were in favour of the HCA and showed examples of why strong heritage retention is needed in First Shaughnessy.

A report on the 2016-2020 Budget Outlook will be presented to Council; the budget public consultation process will begin in earnest in October. A total of 7 policy reports will likely be referred to Public Hearing; these include 3063 – 3091 West Broadway (5-storeys) and 2312 – 2328 Galt Street (Norquay Apartment Transition Zone).

Motions on Notice for Tuesday’s Council meeting include the following:

If speakers sign up for these motions, then they will likely be heard at Committee meeting on Wednesday.

knight and marine proposed changesA number of changes to the Knight and Marine Intersection are up for discussion at the Planning, Transportation and Environment Committee meeting on Wednesday, September 30th. A total of $2.5 million has been allocated for the changes. The report states: “The intersection of Knight Street and Marine Drive is the highest crash location in the city of Vancouver.” New vehicular lanes, pedestrian and bike paths are proposed (see inset).

A number of fee increases for 2016 are proposed for licences. There are literally hundreds of fees that will be hiked. Medical marijuana dealers are listed with a $30,000 fee while Compassion Clubs have a $1,000 fee. The adoption fee for a dog (up to 7 years of age) will increase to $281. The Pacific National Exhibition Annual fee is $16,658. There is a wide range of fees that include: Undertaker ($253), Tattoo Parlour ($253), Social Escort Service ($1,228), Scavenger ($274), Theatre ($253), Casino Class 2 ($11,662) and Wedding Chapel ($357). There’s even a “Soliciting for Charity” category ($10 per annum).
