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

Provide your feedback

Over the past four months, we've heard from thousands of people who helped us identify key ideas, interests, and opportunities that are important to the community. This input was used to identify community values to help shape draft guiding principles for the Broadway Plan. It is now time for us to share with you what we've heard.

Provide your feedback on the Draft Broadway Plan Guiding Principles. The survey will be online until Sunday, July 28.
