View corridor open houses coming up

May 29th, 2009 · 24 Comments

It could be just my imagination, but it seems to me that people who read this blog are very interested in the discussion about changes to view corridors. Given that, here’s the city’s official announcement about open houses on same — perhaps people could come wearing nametags with their blog pseudonyms?

Downtown Capacity and View Corridors E-newsletter
May 28, 2009

E-newsletters will keep you up to date on major study milestones and opportunities for public involvement.

Study Objectives

    1. achieve additional development capacity in the downtown to support more public benefits
    2. identify possible modifications while still achieving the intent of the current height and view corridor policies

As a part of the Study, the City is hosting a series of public open houses to hear how protected public views matter you.

Public open houses are being held at the following times and locations:

    • Tuesday, June 2: 3 – 7 pm
      Roundhouse Community Centre
      181 Roundhouse Mews
      Thursday, June 4: 3 – 7 pm
      City Square Shopping Centre
      555 West 12th Avenue

Sunday, June 7: 12 – 5 pm
Vancouver Public Library
Central Branch
350 West Georgia Street
Tuesday, June 9: 3 – 7 pm
Sunset Community Centre
6810 Main Street

Open houses are an informal opportunity to learn more about the study and to have your say on the value of public views.  All open houses are “drop-in” format.

Come and provide your feedback about the protected views. Input will be used to contribute to proposed options for modifying, if appropriate, protected public views and height limits.  These options will be presented to the public later this year for further public evaluation and discussion.
