Community Meeting on the Subway Extension to UBC

Tuesday, March 5, 2019, 7 pm
St. James Community Square
(3214 West 10th Ave)

  • Event hosted by the West Kitsilano Residents Association for all residents affected by the proposed subway extension to UBC, including West Point Grey.
  • Expert panel (including Patrick Condon, Elizabeth Murphy) for discussion and questions.
  • The subway extension to UBC will be looking for funding and may look to development fees.
  • This could mean additional bonus density towers similar to Metrotown, the Cambie Corridor and Oakridge in Kitsilano and West Point Grey.
  • Even if it is bored tunnel, there will be cut and cover at each station and for utilities upgrading, which will be very disruptive for businesses and traffic flow for a decade.
  • Learn more and voice your opinions.
