Jericho Lands planning program presents conceptual site plan options for public feedback
The Jericho Lands planning program is moving into its latest phase of engagement with the presentation of conceptual site plan options, which outline how the future redevelopment of the site might look.
We are working with the joint venture partnership of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and sə̓lílwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Partnership and Canada Lands Company (CLC), the owners of the Jericho Lands, on directions for the future of the site. The Jericho Lands are a 36-hectare (90 acre) site in Vancouver’s West Point Grey neighbourhood, bounded by West 4th Avenue, Highbury Street, West 8th Avenue, and West Point Grey Park.
Conceptional site plans
The conceptual site plans show versions of how the site could be organized in terms of:
- Parks and public spaces
- Streets and pathways
- Retail areas
- Community gathering space
The options were drafted in collaboration with the landowners’ design team after the first two phases of engagement, taking into account feedback from the community, MST Nation members and stakeholder groups, as well as our existing policies.
A virtual kick-off event will provide the opportunity to hear about the conceptual site plan options and ask questions:
- Monday, October 18, 2021, 6:30pm-8:30pm
- Online – Register to receive access link
More ways to get involved
- Learn more: Detailed information on the planning process, site plan options, and engagement opportunities.
- Take the survey: Provide feedback on the site plan options through the online survey which is open between October 19 and November 14.
- Talk to the team: From October 19-November 10, make an appointment to chat in-person, online via video chat, or over the phone with a member of the Jericho Lands planning team. Staff will be available at a pop-up space at 2070 Alma Street to discuss the site options, receive input, and answer questions. Check the website for details on booking an appointment.
Your feedback, along with input from various stakeholders and technical analysis, will be used to select a preferred site concept that will be refined and presented for more public input during the next phase of engagement.
The Jericho Lands planning program will create a policy statement which will provide direction for the site’s future on:
- Transportation and connections
- Parks and open space
- Housing mix including affordable housing, land use, building height and density, sustainability, and public benefits to support the new community
The Jericho Lands Policy Statement will also integrate with the Vancouver Plan, a strategic citywide, long-range plan that will guide our city to 2050 and beyond.
Since launching the Jericho Lands planning program in 2019, City staff have co-hosted a variety of public engagement events with the MST Partnership and CLC, providing a range of opportunities for people to share their thoughts and help shape the future of the Jericho Lands.
