Coalition letter to Council 19-Oct-2019: Opposed to Broadway Plan – Phase 1 Engagement and Proposed Guiding Principles (in Council 22-Oct)

The following letter was sent to all members of Vancouver City Council.

City of Vancouver Council

Dear Mayor Kennedy Stewart and Councillors,

Re: Broadway Plan – Phase 1 Engagement and Proposed Guiding Principles

The Coalition of Vancouver Neighbourhoods (CVN) is opposed to the proposed Broadway Plan principles.

As we have stated previously, we support neighbourhood-based land use planning processes through the City-wide Plan, not corridor-based planning. The current proposal for the Broadway Plan doesn’t meet those criteria.

We also previously raised concerns that the phase 2 extension to UBC should also be planned through the neighbourhood-based City-wide Plan, not the Broadway Plan corridor process.

Please do not approve these planning principles and instead refer this to the City-wide Plan through neighbourhood-based processes, and not through the Broadway Plan corridor process.
