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
- Lane speed humps
Requests for other types of improvements such as pavement and curbs, sidewalks, and street lights are not being considered at this time.
How a local improvement proceeds
The Vancouver Charter and the Local Improvement Procedures Bylaw outline the requirements that must be met in order for various local improvement projects to be constructed.
