We want to hear your views about options for the future of False Creek South Lands

We are seeking public input about how 80 acres of City-owned lands in False Creek South could be used to help address the housing crisis, and contribute to achieving other priorities such as accelerating action on climate change, increased focus on equity and critical social issues and protecting and building the local economy.

Background

The False Creek South neighbourhood is located between the Cambie and Burrard Street bridges on the south shore of False Creek, excluding Granville Island and Senakw. The City of Vancouver owns and manages 80 acres of this land on behalf of Vancouver citizens, which are situated on the unceded traditional territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations.

Today, False Creek South is a primarily residential neighbourhood, with approximately 1,800 units on leased City-owned lands. With many leases expiring in the next 15 to 25 years, the City has a responsibility to consider potential long-term use of its lands to help address priorities, such as Vancouver’s housing crisis. Considerations include:

  • How City-owned lands in False Creek South could potentially help address priorities in the best interests of all Vancouver residents.
  • Clarifying potential future uses for FCS lands for residents and businesses located on these City-owned lands.
  • Ensuring decisions concerning the future of City-owned lands are financially responsible.

Next steps

We will use your feedback to help inform long-term decisions about the City-owned lands in False Creek South. In the short term we will also be compiling what we hear into an engagement summary report which we will post on our website. Public input from this engagement will also inform the City’s broader Vancouver Plan.
