A map of the Broadway Plan area

Broadway Plan

This is the start of a comprehensive planning and engagement process for the area of Broadway between Clark Drive and Vine Street.

Our goal is to support growth while maximizing the opportunities associated with the new rapid transit connection to the region.

In March 2019, we launched a two-year process to create a comprehensive Broadway area plan. Through the process, there will be ongoing opportunities to share your thoughts.

The 30-year plan will focus on opportunities to integrate new housing, jobs, and amenities around the new Broadway Subway.

The plan will address the need for:

  • Increased job space
  • Deepening housing affordability
  • Minimizing displacement of existing tenants
  • New or improved connections
  • Improved parks and public spaces
  • New and renewed public amenities

What's happening

Council has endorsed the Broadway Plan Guiding Principles

The Proposed Guiding Principles for the Broadway Plan were endorsed by Council October 22, setting direction for the creation of the Broadway Plan which will incorporate core community values into future planning in the area.

Public input played a key role in developing the principles. Between March and September, staff engaged with community members through:

  • 24 public events
  • 12 focused engagement events
  • 3 surveys

This resulted in more than 10,300 engagement contacts. Community members shared what they value about their neighbourhoods, ideas, interests, and opportunities.

Phase 2 of work on the Broadway Plan will move forward with developing growth scenarios and emerging directions which will be presented to the public in early 2020. Once a preferred set of directions has been selected and tested with the public, a draft plan will be created and presented to Council for consideration by the end of 2020.


Phase 1 engagement summary report

The report summarizes what we heard from March 7 to September 7, 2019. Phase 1 engagement was a listening phase to gather ideas, interests, and opportunities for the future of the Broadway Plan study area and its distinctive neighbourhoods: False Creek Flats, Mount Pleasant, Fairview, and Kitsilano.
