West End Community Plan

The West End is a liveable neighbourhood that is home to a unique mix of people and places.

It is a community that features a range of housing, land use, heritage buildings, transportation options, and amenities.

There are several projects underway that are part of the implementation of the community plan. Learn more and get involved below.

What's happeningCurrent West End Plan implementation projects

West End Commercial Streets: Davie, Robson, and Denman villages

We're exploring transportation and public space improvements in the West End. Our focus is on the commercial streets - Davie, Robson, and Denman villages.

In 2024, we are considering changes to the sidewalk and road space along Davie Street, between Burrard and Jervis streets. These changes could help make Davie Village work better for businesses, residents and visitors.

During this phase, we also explored ways to advance other segments of the greenway and heard from the community at 4 pop-up events.
