The first phase of Planning Vancouver Together is underway. To date, we've heard from over 10,000 residents, employees, business owners, and visitors.
Join us in Planning Vancouver Together
This process offers an exciting opportunity to establish a new standard for community involvement and meaningful civic engagement placing residents and their stories at the centre of this effort.
Over the next three years, we're asking for your help in creating the Vancouver we want and need. Together let’s create a new Vancouver Plan, one that puts you at the heart of our priorities for the present and future.
The Vancouver Plan is intended to create a strategy that allows Vancouver to become a more sustainable, inclusive, and affordable city.
The plan will address issues such as long-term land use and transportation directions, housing affordability, environmental and social health, and the need to better leverage long-term public investments.
The Vancouver Plan will:
- Be informed by a collaborative process that engages Vancouver residents, workers, business, and interested groups
- Create an integrated strategy that includes a vision for the future city
- Define what kind of city Vancouver will become and how best to tackle key city-wide challenges
Last November, Council directed staff to report back on the proposed scope and a work program to develop a Vancouver Plan.
On July 16, Vancouver City Council approved the staff report on the scoping for a City-wide Planning Program for Vancouver PDF file (2 MB) to create a clear, citywide framework to collectively move forward with developing the plan.
The process will be focused into the following key phases (tentative, and subject to refinement):
