Jericho Lands policy planning program

The Jericho Lands are a 36-hectare (90 acre) site located in Vancouver's West Point Grey neighbourhood, bounded by West 4th Avenue, Highbury Street, West 8th Avenue, and Discovery Street.

Through the Jericho Lands policy planning program, the City in collaboration with MST Nations and CLC will work with the community to create a Policy Statement that will guide future redevelopment of the site. The policy statement will establish principles, objectives, and policy on: reconciliation, affordable housing, land use, density, height, public benefits, transportation, built form, character, sustainability, infrastructure, and phases of development.

The program will include a wide range of opportunities for the public and stakeholders to be involved over the next two years and will coordinate with planning work on the Broadway Corridor and other related City planning initiatives.

The input of residents, stakeholders, and people from all parts of the city will be important in helping to shape a policy statement that reflects the needs and aspirations of the community.
