Phase 3: recommendations

June 2017: recommended design for Quebec Street to Guelph Street

In November 2016, staff presented a proposed design for the Quebec Street to Guelph Street segment of the corridor for feedback from residents and businesses. Significant changes have been made to the design based on public feedback.

The recommended design is being presented to the public for further feedback and comments at an open house on June 29, 2017. Open house material and on-line feedback from will be available June 26, 2017.

May 2017: 10th Avenue Health Precinct Street Improvements (Oak St to Cambie St)

On May 17, 2017, Council approved the recommendations for the improvements between Oak Street and Cambie Street. The recommendations will improve safety and comfort for people walking and cycling in the Health Precinct.

December 2016 to March 2017: refined design with Health Precinct partners

We undertook a join review of the recommended corridor design for the Health Precinct from November 2016 with Vancouver Coastal Health, BC Cancer Agency, and Provincial Health Services Authority.

The purpose of the joint review was to find ways to better meet the needs of emergency services, patients, and visitors to the Health Precinct.

The refined design responds to concerns we heard about:

  • Emergency vehicle access between facilities
  • Patient access and vehicle circulation to health services
  • Parking and passenger loading close to key facilities for people who need it

November 2016: recommended design

Building on what we heard over the last year, we developed a recommended design for 10th Avenue Corridor from:

  • Oak Street to Cambie Street (in the Health Precinct)
  • Quebec Street to Guelph Street
  • Commercial Drive to Victoria Drive

We held public open houses on November 26, 23, 26, and 29 to answer your questions and get feedback on the recommended design. View the open house materials:

Phase 2: design options

July and October 2016: accessibility sessions

Building on what we heard from you at public open houses held in April, we formed an Accessibility Working Group to discuss access in and around the Health Precinct.

December 2015 to May 2016: design options

Building on what we heard from you at public open houses held last fall, we've focused our initial efforts on developing options for the Health Precinct. This includes the part of the 10th Avenue Corridor between Oak and Yukon Streets.

We held public open houses on April 23 and 26 to present three design options for improvements to the 10th Avenue Corridor. Over 160 people attended the events and provided feedback on the options. As well, we asked you what you thought of the design options in an online questionnaire during April 23 to May 15. View the open house information displays:

October to November 2015: listen-and-learn

We asked for input on how you walk, bike, and drive on the 10th Avenue Corridor:

  • At open houses held on October 29, November 2, and November 7
  • With an online questionnaire from October 29 to November 1

Thanks to everyone who shared their thoughts. Your feedback will help identify opportunities and challenges to help guide design improvements going forward. We are currently analyzing the feedback and will update you soon.

Phase 1: ideas and information

Summer 2015: project launch

We held two launch events on July 20 and 26 to hear your thoughts on the 10th Avenue Corridor and Vancouver's bike routes, and share how we're planning to make the Corridor better for you.

Together with Momentum Magazine, we presented the #ThisIsHowWeRollVan photo booth sweepstakes. Participants walked or cycled to the booth, got their photo taken, and entered to win great prizes!
