GWAC Meeting:  Monday, May 6. 2019 7pm
Learning Resource Centre, (LRC), 1661 Napier Street
Under the Britannia Library

What is  the Plan When the Viaducts Are Gone?
The City intends to develop a new route across the False Creek Flats once the Viaducts come down.  A community panel was convened and recently recommended crossing on National Street  to Charles and emptying out on Clark as the preferred route.  This has now gone to the City’s Engineering department for review. 

Lon LeClair, director of Transportation with the City of Vancouver has been invited to speak to the  priorities of the City on May 6th, which will be followed by a panel discussion with representatives of the Strathcona Residents’ Association, Produce Row, Commercial Drive BIA along with Maria Stanborough of GWACouncil.

They will discuss that which they think is important for you to know and want to hear from you, so plan to attend.
