Bring your friends, family, neighbours! Spread the word!
Saturday May 7 at 11 am!
Meet at the north entrance of City Hall

Broadway Plan – Going to council May 18 for approval.
Covers 16th Ave. to 1st Ave., Mt. Pleasant, Fairview, South Granville and part of Kitsilano to Vine St.
Plus it affects Grandview to Commercial Dr. that is following similar typologies.
- Centres – Station Areas 30-40 storeys
- Centres – Shoulder Areas 20-30 storeys
- Villages – 4-6 storeys
- Residential – Existing Apartment Areas (currently 3-4 storeys) up to 20 storeys
- Residential – Existing Low Density (Existing RT zones character house retention with multiple suites/infill) 6-18 storeys

If the subway extension to UBC is approved, these kinds of typologies are likely to be extended throughout Kitsilano and West Point Grey, with Jericho Lands as a station area development typology.
