Broadway Plan

We would like your feedback on the comprehensive planning and engagement process for the Broadway Plan. The Broadway Plan Team will use this page to provide project updates and ask for community input on different aspects of the plan.

In March 2019, we launched a two-year process to create a comprehensive community plan for the area within Vine St to Clark Dr and 1st Ave to 16th Ave. Through the process, there will be ongoing opportunities to share your thoughts.

The 30-year plan will focus on opportunities to integrate new housing, jobs, and amenities around the new Broadway Subway.

Our goal is to support growth while maximizing the opportunities associated with the new rapid transit connection to the region.

The plan will address the need for:

  • Increased job space
  • Deepening housing affordability
  • Minimizing displacement of existing tenants
  • New or improved connections
  • Improved parks and public spaces
  • New and renewed public amenities

  • Timeline and public engagement changes coming

    05 June, 2020

    The Broadway planning process is continuing to move forward with an adjusted timeline and approach to public engagement that follows public health measures.

    With the Broadway Subway construction expected to start later this year, the Broadway Plan continues to be a high priority. Prioritizing housing, jobs, transportation, and public space in the Broadway area is critical to Vancouver’s future. The plan will also play an important role in our pandemic recovery.

    With COVID-19 (Coronavirus) still circulating and social distancing measures in place, we can't hold in-person engagement for the foreseeable future. It's critical that we stay committed to reducing the spread of COVID-19. We're exploring other public engagement activities so everyone can provide their input.

  • Council endorses Broadway Plan guiding principles

    The proposed guiding principles for the Broadway Plan were endorsed by Council October 22, setting direction for the creation of the Broadway Plan which will incorporate core community values into future planning in the area.

    Public input played a key role in developing the principles. Between March and September, staff engaged with community members through:

    • 24 public events
    • 12 focused engagement events
    • 3 surveys

    This resulted in more than 10,300 engagement contacts. Community members shared what they value about their neighbourhoods, ideas, interests, and opportunities.

    Phase 2 of work on the Broadway Plan will move forward with developing growth scenarios and emerging directions which will be presented to the public in late 2020. Once a preferred set of directions has been selected and tested with the public, a draft plan will be created and presented to Council for consideration in mid 2021.
