About 120 people attended the CityHallWatch public forum on extremely tall buildings at the Vancouver Public Library, including the public, councillors, media, developers, planners and academics. There was a good discussion. A report will be issued in due course. The biggest surprise was an announcement at the end by Vancouver’s Director of Planning that the City would hold a “question and answer” meeting before Jan 20 on this topic. We encourage everyone, including independent experts, to stand by for news on this. Comments on the forum are welcome to citizenYVR@gmail.com.
