The False Creek Residents Association has issued the following statement regarding future plans for Creekside Park and the proposed Northeast False Creek Area Plan.
“The FCRA is excited about the prospect of a long promised new park. However, the western boundary should remain as the present day Carrall St. Greenway to provide maximum waterfront park space and leave the current boundaries of Andy Livingstone Park intact.
The City of Vancouver’s current park concept plan is not in keeping with the vision of a waterfront oriented park space. It does not meet the vision of a park for Vancouver citizens that was contractually agreed on with Concord Pacific nearly three decades ago, and who has benefited from tax breaks, and profited from having a presentation centre on the park site during that timeframe.”
Vancouver residents can still make their views on the plan known to City planning staff & City Council. Details can be found in this Document.
