Canada Line North Cambie Area Open House
Tuesday February 21, 2006
The Canada Line Project is inviting the public to participate in the next phase of community consultation for the Canada Line - the Detailed Design Consultation for stations.
You are invited to attend an open house to learn more about the North Cambie section of the Canada Line, including station character and design and to provide your comments. This section includes stations at False Creek South and Broadway/City Hall in Vancouver. In addition, the City of Vancouver will be seeking your input into station precinct planning which addresses neighbourhood improvements including parking, traffic, and pedestrian and bike access.
Time: 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm
Where: Holiday Inn (Ballroom), 711 West Broadway, Vancouver
Station design consultation will have four steps. An initial series of public open houses will be followed by meetings with Urban Design Panels from the Cities of Richmond and Vancouver. Input from the public open houses and the Urban Design Panels will help guide further station design work undertaken by the Canada Lineâ€šs design teams. The results of this detailed design work will be presented to the public in a second round of open houses, followed by final presentations to the Development Permit Boards in Richmond and Vancouver. The initial series of open houses will also seek your comments on key relationships between the station and the surrounding neighbourhood. Public input will be used by the City of Vancouver to develop a refined precinct plan to be showcased in the second round of open houses.
