I am glad to see the Coalition of Vancouver Neighbourhoods has arranged an All-Party Meeting on October 15. The theme of the debate will be Putting The Community Back Into Community Planning.
See the Coalition website for on-going details.
Time to quiz the candidates about the role of community in our neighbourhoods. Who gets to choose where the towers rise, or even if the towers rise? Should residents choose? Or should it be Planners? Or Developers? Or how can these parts be made to work more efficiently for an improved neighbourhood — whatever the definition of “improved” might be in each case?
Make a date in your calendar and come get involved in making Vancouver the best it can be.
