Open house: Revised structure plan
October 2013 – Come to an open house to see a revised structure plan for the future redevelopment of the Great Northern Way Campus Lands.

It also provides for the future extension of the Millennium SkyTrain line and the relocation of Emily Carr University from Granville Island.
Staff from the City and the Great Northern Way Campus Trust will be there to answer your questions.
Council approved planning program
