Grandview-Woodland Project Update – 10th Avenue Corridor Public Open Houses

Reproduced below is a notice from the City concerning upgrades for the 10th Avenue Corridor. Of particular interest is the Open House at the Croatian Cultural Centre (3250 Commercial Drive) on Tuesday, November 29th (4-7pm). There’s also an option to email the City with comments until December 12, 2016.

The City of Vancouver is improving the 10th Avenue Corridor to better accommodate people of all ages and abilities who walk, cycle, and drive.  Over the past year, the City has built on public and stakeholder feedback to develop a recommended design for the Health Precinct between Oak and Cambie Streets and will present their findings at the South Granville Seniors Centre on December 1st at 12:30 – 1:30 PM.  For more information about the upcoming open houses and the potential designs for the two other segments along the corridor, please see the information below.
We want to hear from you!
Over the last year, we have built on public and stakeholder feedback to develop a recommended design for the Health Precinct between Oak and Cambie Streets, and to advance potential designs for segments from Quebec Street to Guelph Street and from Commercial Drive to Victoria Drive.

False Creek Flats Proposal & Adanac/Union Bike Route (Dec 5/16)

Last meeting of the year!
False Creek Flats Proposal:

Cory Dobson, False Creek Planning, City of Vancouver, will  present the Draft Plan Directions.  These have been developed on public input, stakeholder meetings, open houses and internal research and analysis. At this meeting he will walk us through the proposed directions outlined in the draft plan and  provide an opportunity for your feedback. 

Of particular  concern to Grandview Woodland will be transportation corridor planning given the proposal to remove the viaducts and close Prior/Venables Streets.

Adanac / Union Bike Route Consultation: The Transportation Planning Branch | City of Vancouver wants to hear from residents about what is and isn’t working along this bike route.  The City of Vancouver is planning a series of spot improvements along the Union-Adanac Corridor between Gore Avenue and Kamloops Street to make it safer and more comfortable for people of all ages and abilities to walk and cycle.

Public consultation on both initiatives is planned  for January 2017,
so this is a chance for local residents to inform that consultation.
