WHAT DO I WANT FROM MY STREET? CHANGE IS COMING TO CAMBIE, MAIN, FRASER

Organization: 
Heritage Vancouver Society
Date of Event: 
Wednesday, June 15, 2016 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Increasingly, we see the character and street level retail disrupted by the creation of high-density mixed-use areas close to public transport. Although this kind of development increases the housing supply, questions around diversity, density distribution, community assets, and neighbourhood quality remain. It is a model that appears to preserve low-density single-family neighbourhoods by introducing Metrotown like developments. The panel will explore what factors make a street work, including how accessible it is for various modes of transportation, how it allows for a variety of activities, how pedestrian oriented it is, whether it provides comfortable gathering spaces, and how it contributes to a distinct image of its neighbourhoods as a means to assess the impact of the TOD development being proposed for Vancouver. A general discussion with the audience follows at the end. Panel Gordon Price - Director of the City Program at SFU Danielle Peacock - Implementation Committe Member for the Mount Pleasant Community Plan Claudia Laroye - Executive Director of Marpole BIA Mike Klassen - Principal at TCG Public Affairs and extremely involved community member of Vancouver Mountain View
