Vancouver Plan

Vancouver Plan hosts multiple engagement opportunities throughout the spring

This work, and our entire Planning Vancouver Together Process, will lead to a crucial engagement and forum in the fall to determine the choices we need to make for the future we want.

February 17 2021 –

As we move towards making pivotal choices for the city's future this fall, the Planning Vancouver Together process is hosting an intense period of public engagement over the next few months.

Housing, the future of neighbourhoods, re-imagining our streets, supporting the local economy, re-establishing a blue-green network, reconciliation, and equity are the focus areas in a range of free online events, surveys and workshops.

These key areas of city building reflect priorities we heard over the past year and half of public engagement and exploration of 10 Provisional Goals to create a city-wide, strategic Vancouver Plan.

Engagement schedule

A wide range of opportunities includes:

Integrating Broadway and other key planning programs

The process to develop a Vancouver Plan will guide and integrate long-range policy efforts across all City departments. It is being developed in coordination with a number of programs that are currently underway. These include:

  • Broadway planning
  • Jericho Lands Policy Statement development
  • Equity Framework
  • Climate Emergency Response
  • Implementing the Housing Vancouver Strategy

These programs are the building blocks within the Vancouver Plan, and City staff are working collaboratively to ensure that input we receive as part of these processes informs the Vancouver Plan - and vice versa. More information about these and other engagement processes is available at shapeyourcity.ca .

About Planning Vancouver Together

Planning Vancouver Together is an intensely engaging process that aims to reflect the diversity of our population and will result in a long-term, strategic vision and actionable Vancouver Plan.

It will guide how we grow, invest, govern, and work to build a city where current and future generations can thrive.

Planning is well underway and the proposed Vancouver Plan is anticipated to be prepared for City Council in mid-2022.
