As noted in our last newsletter, the City of Vancouver is currently working on a new community plan for the False Creek South area, a neighbourhood that stretches from the Burrard Bridge to Cambie Bridge.

As part of this, they are holding workshops devoted to different planning themes. There are a few that will be of particular interest to VPSN members, including sessions on public space and transportation. False Creek South is home to an intriguing and important array of spaces, such as Leg-in-Boot Square, Charleson Park and Sutcliffe Park (among others). These parks and plazas, and the many paths that connect them, will need to be a key component of any future plan for the area.

Registration for the 2018 False Creek South workshop series is now open, and you can contact City staff to sign up for one or more sessions.

  • Public Realm & Open Space, Wednesday, January 10 (5 – 8 pm)
  • Transportation, Wednesday, January 24 (5 – 8 pm)
  • Housing, Saturday, January 13 (9:30 am – 12:30 pm)
  • Character & Urban Design, Saturday, February 3 (3:30 – 6:30 pm)

:: Register for a workshop – online here or by calling 604-829-2015.
