With your help, we’re reimagining the area around the Rupert and Renfrew SkyTrain stations as we plan for future growth and look for opportunities to:

  • advance reconciliation
  • add more housing choices
  • enhance Still Creek
  • support job growth
  • make it easier to walk, cycle, or roll through the area.

The Draft Rupert and Renfrew Station Area Plan focuses land use changes around the Station Areas at Rupert and Renfrew SkyTrain stations and in two neighbourhood Villages (Renfrew St and 1st Ave, and 22nd Avenue between Rupert St. And Renfrew St.), while preserving the Employment Lands and protecting Still Creek.

How to get involved

We would like to thank everyone who has been part of the planning process so far, and encourage you to learn about the Draft Plan at an upcoming event:

  • Launch Event – Learn about the Draft Plan, ask questions of staff, enjoy some refreshments (including Johnny’s Pops from 12–1:30 pm) and participate in an art activity led by Still Moon Arts.

Next steps

Feedback from this phase of engagement will be summarized later this summer and used to help refine the final Rupert and Renfrew Station Area Plan.

Continue visiting this website for updates on other events or upcoming public engagement, or sign-up to our email list to receive event notifications and project updates.

If you have any questions about the Draft Plan or an upcoming event, please email rupertrenfrewplan@vancouver.ca

    We want everyone to have a chance to learn about Still Creek and the role that water and water management will have in the Rupert and Renfrew Station Area Plan.

    We're hosting three drop-in style "Info Pop-Ups" where the community can learn about the Still Creek Enhancement Study, groundwater management and early ideas for how the plan is working with water. City of Vancouver staff will be available to answer questions and walk you through the materials.

    • Thursday, October 12 from 2:00 - 4:00 pm at the VPL Renfrew Branch (2969 E 22nd Avenue)
    • Tuesday, October 17 from 4:00 - 7:00 om at the Renfrew Park Community Centre (2929 E 22nd Avenue)
    • Wednesday, October 25 from 3:00 - 6:00 pm at the Thunderbird Community Centre (2311 Cassiar St)

    Note: These events are opportunities for the community to learn about various studies, including the Still Creek Watershed Enhancement Opportunities Study, that will shape the Rupert and Renfrew Station Area Plan, but are not public engagement opportunities. Engagement on the Draft Plan will take place in 2024. For an event with activities for the whole family check out Still Creek Festival, which will feature the same information presented at these sessions. You can also view the information boards here.

If approved by Council, multiplex units would be allowed on most residential lots in the Rupert and Renfrew area. Details about the changes can be found by visiting the project’s Shape Your City Webpage. Council will decide whether or not to approve the changes at a Public Hearing starting on September 14th.

    With the support of Infrastructure Canada through the Natural Infrastructure Fund, the city will be adding and enhancing five green rainwater infrastructure (GRI) sites within the Still Creek watershed. They include Cornett Road, Charles Park, Slocan Park, Beaconsfield Park, and Falaise Park. These enhancement projects will integrate the lenses of ecology, water, and community, taking a watershed-based approach to reimagine the role of neighbourhood parks and streets in the health of Still Creek.

    We plan to use wetlands, rain gardens, and rainwater tree trenches, to capture, convey, filter, and absorb polluted urban runoff using plants and soils. This will result in cleaner water entering Still Creek, while also helping to reduce localized flooding, improve local biodiversity, mitigate urban heat impacts, and improve access to nature.

  • Rupert and Renfrew Station Area Boundary Update

    Share Rupert and Renfrew Station Area Boundary Update on Facebook Share Rupert and Renfrew Station Area Boundary Update on Twitter Share Rupert and Renfrew Station Area Boundary Update on Linkedin Email Rupert and Renfrew Station Area Boundary Update link

    In February, City Staff shared an intent to update the study area boundary for the Rupert and Renfrew Station Area Plan. The update was based on two considerations:


    • Removing an area in the Southwest due to limited sewer capacity; and
    • Expanding the area to the North and South to include areas identified in Vancouver Plan as potential ‘villages’. These villages, centred on 1st Avenue and 22nd avenue, were identified based on places with existing local shops and services. Vancouver Plan identified a vision to grow the villages, including more commercial and community uses, as well as more types of housing, to provide more local jobs, access to daily needs, and opportunities for social connection.


    The updated boundary of the Rupert and Renfrew Station Area plan is shown below:
