As part of the 2021 School Streets Pilot, we partnered with the Vancouver School Board and Lord Roberts Elementary School to make Comox Street car-free, between Cardero and Bidwell streets, during school pick-up and drop-off times.
Because of the pilot's success and the feedback collected over the last two years from the school community, we consulted the broader community on a potential year-round School Street initiative.
What's happeningPhase 1 - Public engagement summary
We were exploring the idea of a year-round School Street on a single block of Comox Street, between Cardero and Bidwell streets.
In spring 2023, we engaged West End residents and the Lord Roberts Elementary School community about the proposal. We collected feedback from 749 people.
We heard support for safe active travel options. We also heard concerns about impacts on accessibility, parking, sanitation, and safety.
The information collected is helping us explore different design options. In the fall of 2023, we plan to provide an update to the residents and the school community.
Project updates will be shared on this page.
