Event description

Description

The City of Vancouver Broadway Planning Team is hosting a series of 'walkshops' this May and June throughout the Broadway Plan area. These sessions combine a walking tour with a workshop, and are an opportunity for community members to help shape neighbourhood specific strategies for the Broadway Plan. Join us as we explore the distinct neighbourhoods which make up the Plan area and share your input with our team. We will discuss topics such as housing, transportation, parks and public space, local business, arts and culture, heritage, urban design, and community facilities, depending on the area.

Uptown Map

During this engagement event, you can tour Uptown guided by staff from the Broadway Planning Team plus and other City departments. We encourage you to ask questions and provide your input to help identify points of interest, what's working well, ideas and opportunities and areas you feel need attention during the planning process.

The walking tour will take approximately 1.5 hours and will be followed by an approximately 1.5 hour workshop. This workshop will be a facilitated group discussion and mapping exercise to capture your thoughts and ideas for the area.

The walkshops are first come-first-serve registration. Space for the Walkshops is limited and will be restricted to 25 attendees per walking tour. The meet up locations and event specifics will be provided upon registration to the event.

If you can't make the tour, missed out, or prefer to provide your input online, you can still participate! Stay tuned for our interactive walking tour maps, where you can follow the same tour routes for all of the walkshop sub-areas and have your voice heard by completing a survey, making comments on the routes and the surrounding neighbourhood. We aim to have this platform live in time for the first set of walkshops.

We look forward to your feedback in person and online!
