Anyone who reads here on a regular basis will know that there is growing concern with the design decisions being made at the important Broadway & Commercial intersection — most particularly on what is known as the Safeway site.
Most of these proposals do not comply with the approved Grandview Community Plan, the recommendations of the Citizens’ Assembly, the final recommendations of City of Vancouver Planning department in the Plan (prior to Council-driven amendments), nor the many views expressed at several community-rich meetings and workshops that have preceded this current proposal.
There are rumblings of a group organizing to protest and debate these decisions, I am glad to hear. One of the potential organizers of such a group has circulated an email reminding us to make sure City Council has YOUR views on what should happen at Commercial & Broadway.
You can do that by completing the very quick survey at: https://shapeyourcity.ca/1780-e-broadway
I would encourage you to write today!
