Council and Park Board Preview May 2-4th: Point Grey Road, Sunshine list, Floating signs, Love locks sculpture and more

City Hall

Vancouver City Council has meetings scheduled for May 3rd and 4th, while the Park Board is set to meet on Monday, May 2nd. (Update: Park Board could not complete their agenda and the meeting will reconvene on Tuesday, May 10th starting at 6:30pm).

The topic of the ‘love locks’ is returning to Park Board in the form of a report on a final recommendation for a sculpture in QE Park. A report on South False Creek Seawall Park Upgrades and Tree Replacement will be considered by Park Board, and a contract for the replacement of synthetic turf fields in Oak Meadows and Kerrisdale Parks will be reviewed. A motion on notice for a water conservation measure to reactivate an unused reservoir at VanDusen botanical gardens will be put forward.

The Regular Council meeting on Tuesday, May 3rd includes a bylaw amendment to enable the regulation of floating signs. Additional dates for public hearings may be added to the Council schedule (May 24, June 21 and July 19); this likely indicates that a couple of contentious items will be up for review over the next few months. The City’s Statement of Financial Information for 2015 will be reviewed; this document includes the ‘sunshine list’ that shows the salaries of city employees who earned over $75,000 last year. A total of $473,342,037 of the City’s budget was allocated to salaries last year and $679,585,490 was spent on suppliers. The City also has $943 million in long-term debt and over $1.3 billion in unfunded pension liabilities.

The Committee meeting on Wednesday, May 4th includes the Phase 2 of the Point Grey Road Seaside Completion project. As well, a South False Creek ‘Seaside Greenway’ design from the Burrard Bridge to the Cambie Bridge will be reviewed. Council will also examine primary liquor licences at 1161 West Georgia Street (3rd Floor Bar/nightclub) and at 2390 West 10th Avenue (Meraloma Club).
