The City of Vancouver and the Vancouver Economic Commission would like to invite you to come out and celebrate the launch of the False Creek Flats planning process! The Flats is made up of over 450 acres of primarily employment land. Bound by Main Street to the west, Clark Drive to the east, Prior/Venables to the north, and Great Northern Way to the south, it is home to over 600 businesses and roughly 8,000 employees!
On Wednesday, May 27th come out to Circle Studio at 390 Industrial Avenue, between 4:30pm and 7:30pm and join us for the project’s launch. Meet your neighbours and local businesses over a snack from a resident food truck and purchase a Flats brewed beer while you explore the history, diverse economy and unique industrial character of the Flats.
While at the event you will have a number of opportunities to begin to provide your input to City staff into the future of the area, as well you will find information and sign-up sheets for upcoming events.
DATE: Wednesday, May 27, 2015
TIME: 4:30pm – 7:30pm
LOCATION: Circle Studio @ 390 Industrial Avenue

Last year, coliform counts in False Creek were off the charts. Concentrations of the bacteria were so high that rowers, kayakers and dragon boaters were urged to stay out of the water and avoid False Creek’s eastern basin.
While False Creek is not considered a swimmer’s beach, you don’t have to swim in order to get wet or have water get in your mouth.
Now we have a clearing to the water’s edge. A little haven of natural beach. At long last. But do its visitors know of the water hazards?
What can be done to promote better awareness?

…the City is co-hosting an event this Saturday to help engage your community in regards to a Livability Study that our consultant, Urban Systems, will be conducting over the next several weeks.
The purpose of this study is to better understand what can be done to make Strathcona, Grandview Woodland and specifically Prior and Venables Street more livable for all. Urban Systems will be looking into many different aspects of Livability to conduct their work, but they would like your help in determining what is most important to you.
To gather this information they have created a survey to help get as much community input as possible.
The results of this survey will help inform current planning studies being conducted by the City of Vancouver, such as the False Creek Flats Local Area Plan and the investigation into the potential replacement of the Georgia and Dunsmuir Viaducts with a mostly at-grade street network.
The results will also provide important planning context for emerging and new developments such as the proposed relocation of the St. Paul’s Hospital from downtown Vancouver to 1002 Station St.
Seems we’ve all had enough of the tar park and want to enjoy the beauty and amenities of a green one.
