COVID-19 (Coronavirus) update
August 17, 2020: Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we've temporarily suspended the issuance of new petitions until December 31, 2020. If you have any questions, contact our office at ENLOCALS@vancouver.ca.
Property owners may request to construct improvements in their local area through the Local Improvements Program.
The program is administered through a petition process and the cost share ratios by project type are defined in the Local Improvement Procedures By-law.
|Project type||City cost share||Property-owner cost share|
|Lane speed humps||0%||100%|
Final City cost share for lane paving and lane lighting projects are determined as per the Local Improvement Procedures By-law.
Funding for the program
We have limited funding available for local improvement projects under the current Capital Plan.
At this time we are accepting requests for:
- Lane paving
- Lane lighting
- Traffic circles
- Corner bulges

Requests for other types of improvements such as pavement and curbs, sidewalks, and street lights are not being considered at this time.
