Council and Park Board Preview June 21-23: Jericho Lands Planning, Liquor Consumption in Parks, PNE Amphitheatre Renewal, Fraserlands Park and more

Park Board considering enacting Liquor Consumption Bylaw in designated areas. One such area is pictured here (Collingwood Park)

This week Park Board had a meeting on Monday, June 21, and City Council has a Regular Meeting on Tuesday, June 22, and a Committee meeting on Wednesday, June 23. There are no public hearings this week, as they have been shifted to one week later. For reference, links and meeting agendas have been reproduced further below. We may add more comment, time permitting.

Some important points:

  • Staff are asking Council to weaken tree protection bylaws to speed up development (A By-law to amend the Protection of Trees By-law regarding the size of trees not requiring a permit for removal)
  • Jericho Lands Planning Program – Process Update and Consideration of Draft Guiding Principles and Emerging Ideas to Guide Site Planning. Related – ‘Jericho Lands Planning Program’: Letter to Council from West Point Gray Residents Association (here)
  • 2021 Annual Inflationary Rate Adjustment to Development Contributions
  • HP-PNE Master Plan Program – Amphitheatre Renewal
  • Joint Vancouver City Council – Vancouver School Board Committee to Collaborate on Capital Projects
  • Amendments to the Street and Traffic By-law No. 2849 to Allow Electric Kick Scooters on Protected Bike Lanes and Minor Streets
  • East Fraser Lands New Park – Concept Plan (for decision)
  • A By-law to amend Vancouver Development Cost Levy By-law No. 9755 regarding Low Operational Cost Housing

No public hearings nights are scheduled, but Council will reconvene a previous one to finish discussion and vote on a two-building 6 storey development on Arbutus Street.
