Monthly Meetup: An Update on Transportation 2040 – What’s Happened & What’s Next?
Our next VPSN monthly meet-up focuses on streets and transportation, and in particular, the policies and actions taken by the City of Vancouver through the Transportation 2040 Plan. This plan is the City’s “long-term strategic vision for the city that helps guide transportation and land use decisions, and public investments for the years ahead.”
Public transit and land use planning plays a critical role in enriching and enlivening our public spaces and this session will aim to explore some the many ways that this takes place around the city.
We’ll be joined by Joanna Clark, Citywide Transportation Planner and member of the Transportation 2040 team at the City of Vancouver. Joanna will provide a short presentation on what the Plan entails and progress made on accomplishing goals since its launch in 2012. The presentation will be followed by an open discussion which we’ll be using to review previous VPSN initiatives around streets and transportation, and talk about potential placemaking, research, and advocacy projects that we can focus on over the next little while.
The event takes place:
Monday, January 21
Meeting Room, VPL Mount Pleasant Branch
Registration: The event is FREE. To help us with our planning, please let us know if you’re joining us. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a space.
