Lots of interest, it seems, on this one — consultation on the temporary surface to be applied to the Greenway prior to the start of full-blown consultation on the permanent Greenway design later in the year.
City staff have added opportunities on Sept 24.
I strongly prefer that the temporary surface allows all potential Greenway users to get onto the Greenway and try it out, so that the broadest possible range of opinions can be brought forward to the final design. I’m in favour of accessibility for all; and I’m against exclusion in any form.
Come to a public workshop to learn about different temporary pathway options and share your thoughts:
Kitsilano. September 17, 1 – 3 pm(completed)
- Marpole. September 21, 7 – 9 pm
- Kerrisdale. September 22, 7 – 9 pm
- Kitsilano. September 24, 10 am to 12 pm.
- Kerrisdale. September 24, 3 – 5 pm
Excerpt from the Information Boards:
Many people think about greenways in the traditional sense of nature trails or pathways through natural areas or along waterfronts. In Vancouver, they are that and much more.
Transportation greenways are linear public corridors for pedestrians and cyclists that connect parks, nature reserves, cultural features, historic sites, neighbourhoods and retail areas.
The future Arbutus Greenway will encourage people to travel by foot and bike—and ultimately streetcar—and improve access to parks and public green space. In addition to being a transportation corridor, the future greenway will also include features such as lighting, landscaping and seating areas to create a welcoming public space.
