The Urban Design Panel is set to receive an update on the Broadway Plan, and to review two rezoning applications at the meeting scheduled on Wednesday, December 8, 2021.

Broadway Plan starts at 3 pm. The UDP will receive a report on “the refined plan directions for land use, public realm and built form,” and the UDP is asked to provide “feedback and advice to contribute towards staff’s development of more detailed built form guidelines in the next phase of the planning process.”

The rezoning application for the tower proposed for 1477 W Broadway will be reviewed starting at 5:30 pm (massing model renderings included in the above slideshow). A rezoning proposal for 8029-8225 Oak St and 1012 W 64th Ave will also be reviewed, starting at 6:40 pm.

The UDP will not be livestreaming this meeting; however, they have in the past done livestreams (for example, of the November 10th meeting). Members of the public are allowed to attend and observe (provided that social distancing and provincial health guidelines are observed), but are not allowed to ask questions or comment on the agenda items.

For our previous coverage on the first two items, search “Broadway Plan” and “1477” in the search field on our top page.

For reference, we’ve reproduced the meeting agenda from the City’s webpage:
