…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.
