City of Vancouver development applications snapshot, 1-Oct-2017

A tech-savvy citizen is voluntarily producing two 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-Oct-2017 shows 36 “DE” applications and 178 “DP” applications (excluding 4 MMRU – Medical Marijuana-Related Use Development Applications). That 178 is way up from 137 in August. Of the DE & DP numbers, 16 are “concurrent with rezoning.” The “Centerm Port Expansion Project” is still listed without a number. Three 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 UDP meetings are October 2 (for the Westbank/First Baptist Church 57 storey tower at 969 Burrard & 1019-1045 Nelson, 1668-1684 Alberni, 728-796 Main,  2715 West 12th) and October 18, and November 1, 15, and 19. Upcoming DPB dates are October 30, November 14 and 27, and December 11. Note that several originally-scheduled DPB meetings have been cancelled. Download the official DPB list (as of Oct 1, the version online is dated 14-Sept-2017. We have copied the text at the bottom of this post.):

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?
