Kits Point changes

As a City of Reconciliation, we respect the Squamish Nation’s rights to develop the Sen̓áḵw lands.

We have established a services agreement (3.5 MB) with the Squamish Nation to provide municipal services and make sure the appropriate infrastructure supports the development and its integration into the surrounding community.

We’re making utility and transportation changes in the Kits Point area to support the Sen̓áḵw development .

We will begin water main construction in the Kits Point area in 2024.

Transportation changes and safety upgrades

In late 2025, we will begin improvements on Chestnut, Greer, Cypress, and Cornwall including:

  • Wider sidewalks on south side of Greer Ave
  • Pedestrian islands at intersections 
  • New 2-way bike lane on the south side of Greer Ave
  • Unidirectional cycling lanes extended north along Cypress St
  • Extended 2-way bike lane on east side of Chestnut St
  • New protected intersection at Cornwall Ave and Cypress St with dedicated signal phasing to manage turning conflicts

We will be engaging with the community in spring 2024 to review potential changes to parking in the neighbourhood.

What's happeningTree removal project on Greer Ave

We will remove 6 trees in early March on the south side of the 1800 block of Greer Ave to prepare for the water main installation.

We will replant new trees following the transportation upgrades that begin in winter 2025.

Water main preparation and installation

In mid-March, we will begin preparing for the water main upgrade by digging test holes at:

  • 1800 block of Creelman Ave
  • 1300 block of Chestnut St
  • 1800 block of Greer Ave

Water main construction will begin along the blocks listed above in late May or early June.
