Cambie Corridor Phase 3 Update (e-mail from City of Vancouver, 15-Dec-2015)
We want to extend a sincere thank you the many residents and other stakeholders that got involved and provided input throughout the first step of the Phase 3 planning program.
It has been a busy 2015 for the Cambie Corridor Phase 3 planning process and we look forward to a productive 2016. As a recap, our community engagement to-date has included the following:
The Phase 3 process kicked off in the spring, with over 1,100 attendees at our May and June launch events. Our team also had a chance to participate in several resident-led walking tours to better understand local perspectives and considerations for Phase 3.
Throughout October and November, over 600 attendees took part in a series of workshops looking at 6 local sub-areas within the Phase 3 study area. Workshop discussions and feedback will help our planning team:
- Confirm and refine the focus areas for considering potential change
- Explore early ideas for new housing types, such as townhouses and other ground-oriented options; and
- Identify ideas and key considerations for unique sites or areas within the Corridor
Our next steps will include summarizing feedback from the fall workshops, and undertaking more detailed review and technical work. This review and analysis will help us test policy options for consideration in the next steps of the planning process.
We look forward to connecting back with the community in spring 2016 and wish you the best over the holiday season!
