LET'S BUILD OUR FUTURE CITY
As part of the Official Community Plan update, the City has released the draft future Land Use Map. This Map shows the types and locations of land uses that will be encouraged over the next 25 years. The Official Community Plan is the City’s statement of its long-term vision for the future.
These workshops are the next round of community consultation for the OCP. The last round took place from November 2015 to February 2016. All of the information gathered during consultation will inform the new Official Community Plan.
The first half hour of the event will be an open house. You can view the draft design criteria for laneway/carriage houses and for townhouses/rowhouses to see how they will fit into the character of your neighbourhood. You can also review the draft vision, goals and policies, which are also key components of the Official Community Plan.
PRESENTATION & WORKSHOP
After the open house, City staff will present the OUR CITY process and summarize the draft future Land Use Map which will direct future development and redevelopment of property in the city. Next everyone will get to work! City staff will facilitate table discussions about the draft future Land Use Map. You can chat with us and your neighbours before providing feedback.
All sessions at each location will discuss all neighbourhoods in the city. We will also be discussing options for land uses around the 22nd SkyTrain Station.
To make sure that you can attend, free childminding for children aged 18 months to 12 years will be offered by the City Parks and Recreation Staff. Let us know when you register if you will be bringing your children along.
Refreshments will be provided.
This two hour event will be offered in both a morning session (at 9:30 am) and afternoon session (at 12:30).
Can’t make the date? Check out our other events in September and October 2016. We will also have an online survey (coming soon!) that covers the same material.
