Question: When a strata “winds-up” and sells the property to a developer, which party generally absorbs the cost of the community amenity contribution assessed due to rezoning, the strata owners or the developer? We are currently undergoing this process and have been told by our realtors to expect 100% of our current assessment plus only […]

I checked with my Valuable City Hall Sources and they said … it depends. Some, like Rental 100 projects or laneways, are combined. […]
Q: What’s going on with the City of Vancouver’s search for a new Chief Planner? Surely they’re getting close Frances. Any news? A. Good question. I had heard there was a first round of interviews in May, second round in early June. Four candidates on shortlist. Told last week by city manager that announcement was imminent. […]

“The Georgia and Dunsmuir Viaducts, a residual fragment of Vancouver’s rejected freeway system, closed Feb. 5, 2010, for the first time in their 39-year history.”
And no one cared! Close them forever and improve the east van neighbourhood! If the west side could REFUSE the use of the arbutus rail corridor for improved rail transit we in the east van can DEMAND the ELIMINATION and REJECTION of the concrete elevated eye-sores.
