City Hall and Park Board Preview Nov 16-17: Rental Recommendations, TPP, Sunset Park, Harbour Green Park Restaurant contract and more

Sunset Park Revised Plan
The Vancouver Park Board is set to meet on Monday, November 16, 2015. City Council has taken the unusual move of holding both the Regular and Committee meetings on Tuesday, November 17th (usually split over two days).

Park Board HQThe contract for Harbour Green Park Restaurant (Coal Harbour, beside Cactus Club, not far from the Convention Centre) is one of the items up at the Park Board meeting. Staff are recommending that a 10-year lease be awarded to the Sequoia Company of Restaurants. The proposal includes a revised 2-storey restaurant design that eliminates the planned third floor.

Sunset Park has a revised concept plan. The new plan provides a better linkage between the new Community Centre on Main Street and the eastern section of the park (illustrated above).

Commissioner Crawford has put forward a motion on notice to have a public consultation standards policy. Commissioner Evans has a motion on notice asking Park Board to commend Vancouver City Council on the steps taken to realize the delivery of False Creek North Park. It should be noted, however, that the Council majority had voted against Adriane Carr’s amendment to provide a timetable for the delivery of Creekside Park.

The Regular Council meeting on Tuesday November 17th will examine permitting fees for 2016. A number of BIAs (Business Improvement Associations) are up for renewal. A motion on notice to oppose the Trans-Pacific Partnership will be introduced by Councillor Carr.

As a departure, the Council Committee will also be held on Tuesday, November 17th. The Rental Recommendations for 2015 report will be examined.

After a few more comments, for reference we reproduce the meeting agendas further below (please visit the City website for the latest official versions).
