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.

We are launching 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

Area profile

The Broadway Plan area (from Clark Dr to Vine St) is a diverse employment and residential mix that includes established neighbourhoods such as Kitsilano, Fairview, Mt. Pleasant, and the False Creek Flats.

What's happening

Spring engagement

We are hosting a series of 'walkshops' this May and June throughout the Broadway Plan area. These sessions combine a walking tour with a workshop, and are an opportunity for community members to help shape neighbourhood specific strategies for the Broadway Plan.

Join us as we explore the distinct neighbourhoods which make up the plan area and share your input with our team. We will discuss topics such as housing, transportation, parks and public space, local business, arts and culture, heritage, urban design, and community facilities, depending on the area.

The walking tour will take approximately 1.5 hours and will be followed by an approximately 1.5 hour workshop. This workshop will be a facilitated group discussion and mapping exercise to capture your thoughts and ideas for the area.
