Arbutus Greenway: Update and Public Consultation

Copied below is a letter from the City of Vancouver regarding public input dates for the pathway that runs along the Arbutus corridor. Asphalt paving was temporarily halted, however there is a strong lobby to complete a 4 meter wide undivided road along the corridor. This is our opportunity to have input about what our neighbourhood needs, and to address safety for children and all who use the corridor.

***********

The Arbutus Greenway is a future north-south transportation corridor that will connect False Creek to the Fraser River.

In the short term, City of Vancouver is building a temporary pathway that everyone can enjoy. We’re looking at several different types of hard-surface materials, especially those that improve safety and accessibility.

Come to a public workshop and share your thoughts on the temporary pathway options:

  • Saturday, September 17, at the False Creek Community Centre between 1-3pm.
  • Wednesday, September 21, at the Coast Vancouver Airport Hotel between 7-9pm.
  • Thursday, September 22, at the Kerrisdale Community Centre between 7-9pm.

These meetings are public but space is limited. If you plan to attend a workshop, please RSVP at arbutus-greenway.eventbrite.ca. The same material will be covered at each session.

A broader public engagement process for the Arbutus Greenway is expected to kick-off in late Fall 2016.

We hope you will continue to follow the project and be part of the process.

Thank you,
