Thank you to everyone who participated in this very well attended meeting.
— information about the past meeting announcement follows — GWAC meeting: 7:00 p.m., Monday, January 6th, 2020 Learning Resource Centre (LRC) Under the Britannia Library Guest speaker Michael Geller
It is the beginning of a new year, generally a time filled with optimism for the possibility of the year ahead and certainly that is what we would hope for all the citizens of Vancouver and the city itself. There are, however, many proposals on the “table” for Vancouver that can profoundly affect its liveability as well as its affordability and thus, diversity and sustainability.
Currently there are many major projects, such as the Pearson Dogwood lands, Oakridge expansion, the Bus Barn at 41st and Oak, the Heather lands, Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Jericho & UBC developments as well as the Squamish development at the South end of the Burrard Street bridge and who can forget the Safeway site proposal at Broadway and Commercial?
We have asked Michael Geller, noted architect, planner, real estate consultant and property developer with four decades’ experience in the public, private and institutional sectors to share his insights and views on these matters with you and he has generously agreed.
Come to hear Michael speak and bring your questions.
GWAC is grateful to share a wonderful, diverse & welcoming neighbourhood with you and look forward to working together in 2020 to achieve a meaningful and equitable process to meet the demands of a growing community.
GWAC will not hold a public meeting in December, instead the next members’ meeting will be held on January 6th, at 7pm in the Learning Resource Centre. We will send a reminder closer to the date, confirming the next guest speaker.
In the meantime, if you are concerned about the
Safeway Tower Proposal….
…….and want to know more, GWAC is developing a presentation that we can bring to your house to share with gatherings of concerned neighbours. To arrange an information session, simply write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, as this project is going to profoundly affect those living and working south of Broadway, please share this email with them, suggest they share it with their mailing lists & to contact us to get on our list.
We are seeking a volunteer to coordinate these “kitchen gatherings”. so if you or someone you know wishes to get involved, please contact us through email@example.com
The Council is also planning to develop specific communication plans for media, social platforms and our members to respond to the proposal and share information as it becomes available. We also welcome concerned community members contacting us to get involved in these initiatives.
Next meeting: 7:00 p.m., Monday, January 6th, 2020 Learning Resource Centre (LRC) Under the Britannia Library
