We are completing a comprehensive area plan for Broadway between Clark Dr and Vine St. The 30-year plan will focus on opportunities to integrate new housing, jobs, and amenities around the new Broadway Subway in the neighbourhoods of Mount Pleasant, Fairview, and Kitsilano. We began our planning and engagement process in March 2019 and will finish in early 2022.
What's happeningPhase 3 Refined Directions engagement is now closed
Thank you to those who participated in the most recent phase of public consultation. From November 4 to November 30, the Broadway Plan team had more than 10,000 engagement touchpoints which included the survey, in-person open house, virtual open house, pop-ups, and workshops.
An engagement summary will be published in mid-January. Feedback will be used to inform the draft plan, which will be shared in early March 2022.
Social and Cultural Integrated Impact Assessment
We recognize that a project as big as the Broadway Plan will likely have some impacts on the area. To help us identify and learn from these, we'll be undertaking a study linked to this work. The Social and Cultural Integrated Impact Assessment Study (SCIIA) is a project with objectives to better understand the impacts that land use change may have on the people, places, and sites in the Broadway Plan area. The purpose of the study is to:
- Identify physical and non-physical social and cultural assets in the area
- Better understand the importance of these assets to quality of life
- Examine related land use issues including gaps in our existing network, challenges to preservation of social serving spaces, including; arts and cultural spaces and their uses, housing, businesses, and other community-serving uses
- Provide recommendations to inform land use policy, minimize negative impacts and maximize positive opportunities for change
This study will be grounded in local knowledge, particularly the knowledge and experiences of historically and systematically marginalized communities.
