SFU City Conversations

On The Waterfront: Vancouver’s Future Shoreline

Is it time to plan all of Vancouver’s waterfront?

Our city is defined by mountains and water, but our shorelines – inlet, bay, river, creek – are the sites of intense competition. Recreation, industry, environment, tourism, public space, infrastructure, commercial businesses, and housing all want more waterfront.

After five years of networking with 200 stakeholder groups, the Georgia Strait Alliance recently published State of the Waterfront, a report calling for a comprehensive waterfront plan like those of New York and other waterfront cities. The report first focuses on five key themes chosen by the stakeholders — working, living, access to nature, ecosystems, and transportation, and looks at all land within 400 metres (about a five minute walk) of the water’s edge.

Join us at Lot 19, a public park just steps away from the Burrard inlet for an open-air conversation about the future of Vancouver’s waterfront. Framing the conversation are Christianne Wilhelmson, Executive Director of the Georgia Strait Alliance, Duncan Wlodarczak, Vice-Chair of the Urban Land Institute, and a representative from Vancouver Public Space Network. Then it’s your turn to express your opinions, make observations, and ask questions. Feel free to bring your lunch, and be sure to dress for the weather!

Our thanks to the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association for its generous support of this event.




A Note on Registration

SFU City Conversations continues to be free, but registration via Eventbrite is now required. We have made this decision to get a better sense of the interest and expected attendance for each event. As this event is free, and free events routinely have a large number of no-shows, it is our policy to overbook. This site will have plenty of standing room, but seating will be limited and will be available to registered attendees on a first-come, first-served basis. So please arrive early if you would like a seat!

If you have any questions or concerns regarding Eventbrite registration, seating, or general accessibility, please connect with Nicole at psqevent@sfu.ca or 778-782-5959.
