Capital Plan process

How did we arrive at this draft Capital Plan?

As a first step in the Park Board process, staff compiled and evaluated a list of anticipated capital priorities reflecting:

  • The availability of funding for different types of projects designated by the City of Vancouver.
  • Priorities, actions, and projects identified through planning and engagement for our VanPlay Master Plan and other strategies including Community Centre Strategy, Track and Field, Van Splash among many others. These priorities include renewal of ageing parks and recreation infrastructure (community centres, washrooms etc.), aquatics, new track and field amenities, implementation of access and inclusion principles and urban greening.
  • Park Board and City policies, initiatives and Board motions (e.g., Vancouver Plan, Greenest City, Biodiversity Strategy etc.);
  • Previously received project proposals from CCAs, partners, and stakeholders (previous years and ongoing engagement and joint efforts).


The result of this work is a draft Capital Plan which identifies broad categories for investment with available funding. Please review the draft Capital Plan here.

We will test this plan through public and stakeholder engagement from May 2– May 22rd, 2022.The final version first goes to Park Board Commissioners and then to City Council for approval.

The final vote is in the hands of voters. Capital Plans require a plebiscite vote, which takes place during the civic election – this year, October 15, 2022. All those eligible to vote have an opportunity to weigh in on the borrowing required to implement the plan.
