We sent a newsletter (1 MB) in late March to provide an update on the progress of Joyce-Collingwood Station Precinct Plan. The newsletter included details on two opportunities to provide information, answer questions, and improve understanding about the Station Precinct Plan.
What is the plan?
The Station Precinct Plan will encourage more transit-supportive, mixed-use, walkable development around the SkyTrain station. New building forms will unify the blocks immediately around the station with Collingwood Village and transition from taller buildings at the station down to the single-family areas. Improved pedestrian linkages and expanded opportunities for an active local shopping street will create a more physically and socially connected neighbourhood.
The plan will provide new opportunities for housing, including affordable housing, and a strategy to meet the broader needs of existing and future residents.
We held an open house on April 13 to share the proposed zoning changes to permit duplex, townhouse, and four-storey apartment buildings in the transition area, and to take questions.
We held a learning session on April 6 to provide an overview of the plan and have in-depth discussions on
- Transportation and pedestrian connections
- Housing affordability
- Building types and heights
We held open houses on February 3 and 6 to discuss
- A preferred option for new development to be recommended as part of the rezoning policy for the Joyce-Collingwood Station Precinct Plan
- Draft policies on key topics such as housing and commercial uses

At the February 3 open house, many people had common questions, and in response we provided a frequently asked questions and answers document at the second open house held February 6.
We asked what you thought of the preferred land use option and draft rezoning policy for the Joyce-Collingwood area in an online questionnaire from February 3 to March 4. Thanks to everyone who provided their feedback.
