Grandview-Woodland Neighbourhood Transportation and Parking Stakeholder Advisory Group

Grandview-Woodland Neighbourhood Transportation and Parking Stakeholder Advisory Group

The stakeholder advisory group is a forum for City staff to provide regular updates to key stakeholders on the implementation of various transportation initiatives and projects emerging from the Grandview-Woodland Community Plan.

Stakeholders are provided the opportunity to convey their input on these items and the ongoing neighbourhood transportation planning processes. 

This webpage is intended to share information and feedback received during stakeholder advisory group meetings. 

Background

The Grandview-Woodland Community Plan was approved by City Council in July 2016.

Recognizing the transportation priorities emerging from the plan, Council approved an amendment to establish a stakeholder advisory group focussed specifically on the topic of transportation within Grandview-Woodland. The intent of this group is to be a forum for City of Vancouver staff to provide regular updates to key stakeholder representatives on ongoing transportation initiatives in the neighbourhood. Similarly, stakeholders are encouraged to give input and feedback on these transportation initiatives and projects.

The stakeholder advisory group presents an opportunity for the City to increase awareness around transportation projects and processes, and for stakeholders to share and educate on the perspectives of their various organizations.

Project updates

There are a number of upcoming and ongoing transportation projects directly within the Grandview-Woodland neighbourhood. Continue to watch for updates on all future projects within and nearby the neighbourhood.

We will return to the public with open houses in early 2017 to consult on design options, and to refine design concepts.
