More info on this engagement
What we've heard so far
In 2020, we conducted Round 1 of public engagement in the Burrard View Area. This included neighbourhood mail-outs, a public website with information about the park, a sign posted in the park, and opportunities to speak at a Park Board meeting. The applicant, VUFFF, has also conducted their own grass-roots community engagement.
In Round 1, we heard a lot of support for the proposal that highlighted opportunities for community-building, Indigenous garden programming, and increased biodiversity in the park. There were also several people who were concerned that the proposed location (the South-East corner) would displace current uses (e.g. play, picnics, socializing, sports). We were asked by Park Board commissioners to explore other suitable locations within the park.
Accordingly, for this Round 2 of engagement, we are asking about peoples' values and preferences for two possible locations within Burrard View Park.
How your input will help
Each of the possible sites provides benefits and drawbacks. Your response will help us choose the site within the park that is best aligned with community interests.
We recognize that East Vancouver is diverse and that park users will have different priorities. The final solution may not be a perfect fit for every person, but we are doing our best to find an equitable solution that maximizes community benefits.
(Note: The survey has closed as of December 6th. Thank you for your interest and please continue to check this Shape Your City page for more details.)
