Development applications snapshot, 1-May-2017

Note that since a few weeks ago, a super tech-savvy citizen is voluntarily producing two very handy online maps (click bottom right to switch between rezoning and development applications):

As a free public service CityHallWatch takes a monthly snapshot of the Development Applications listed on the City of Vancouver website.

Our count for 1-May-2017 shows 41 “DE” applications and 82 “DP” applications (excluding 7 MMRU – Medical Marijuana-Related Use Development Applications). Of the 123 DE & DP numbers, 15 are “concurrent with rezoning.” The “Centerm Port Expansion Project” is listed without a number. Five applications are “revised,” one is “on hold,” and 1 is “unscheduled from the Development Permit Board.” Some may have also had a change of address, a mysterious and tricky practice.

Anyone interested in these projects is also encouraged to periodically check the Urban Design Panel (UDP) and Development Permit Board (DPB) schedules, as many projects appear before them as part of the approval pipeline. Check often, as sometimes their agendas appear publicly online as little as one hour before the meeting. Upcoming DPB dates are May 1, May 15 (newly added), May 29, June 12, June 26, July 10, July 24, mostly major buildings by major developers. Download official list (currently dated March 31):

Consider writing Mayor and Council asking them to make Development Applications archives available online. The City website provides a list of archived Rezoning Applications (here) going back to 2011, so why not full information on past Development Applications too?
