Council approves the development of the Vancouver Plan
For the first time in 20 years, the City of Vancouver will undertake a city-wide planning process. The plan will address the social, economic, environmental and cultural aspects of daily life, in addition to land-use and transportation planning while integrating key considerations of reconciliation, equity and resiliency. The goal is to enable people, communities, and future generations to thrive. You can view the Council report here.
The Vancouver Plan will be developed during a three-year period (2019 - 2022), and will guide future priorities for the City of Vancouver into 2050 and beyond.
The planning process will:
- Ask the fundamental question: 'What kind of city do we want to become over the coming decades, and why?'
- Acknowledge the colonial history of Vancouver, and the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations care and stewardship of this land.
- Broadly engage residents, workers, employers, institutions, non-profits, civic and neighbourhood groups throughout the city.
- Highlight key choices, trade-offs and strategies that will allow us to realize a shared vision for the future.
- Align with, and inform, existing planning and policy efforts at the City and by other regional agencies.
