Robson Street Walkshop - West End Community Plan
Friday, March 15, 2013 from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM (PDT)
The West End’s four commercial streets (Davie, Denman, Robson and Alberni Streets)are part of a community planning process.
Over the past nine months we have heard about the strengths, challenges, and opportunities along each of these streets.We now need your help to shape a vision for how the places and spaces along Davie, Denman, Robson and Alberni can be improved over the next 5, 10 and 30+ years.
We invite you to attend a “walkshop” where we will encourage you to think about the way we design buildings, sidewalks, roads, landscaping, street furniture, signage, weather protection, patios, and other elements that make up a vibrant, active and viable commercial street. You will have an opportunity to learn about the history and character of these streets, and to observe and discuss how we design these important community places. The walk will be followed by a two-hour facilitated workshop intended to allow participants an opportunity to share what they think is working, and also where there are opportunities for improvements.
The results from the walkshops will be used in the preparation of the West End Community Plan. A community plan happens only once every 30 years, so this is your opportunity to help shape your future community!
For Robson Street, the walking tour will start at 1 pm at the N.E. corner of Robson and Burrard in front of the former HMV. The workshop will be at the West End Community Centre, 870 Denman St.
