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.

This spring we heard from over 1,000 people as part of our public engagement events and had almost 600 people take our community survey. An Engagement Summary of these events is now available.

We have begun drafting the plan and we are working hard to make sure that one of the key elements that makes this neighbourhood so unique, Still Creek, is able to thrive in the future. In addition to being the only salmon bearing creek in the city, the creek also helps with drainage and is considered part of the area’s stormwater infrastructure! The updated Still Creek Enhancement Study has now been released and we'll be sharing the results of the study with the community this fall:

  • "Wetland Wonders: Explore Learn and Connect at Falaise Park" - Saturday, October 7, 10:00 - 12:00 - We're partnering with Still Moon Arts Society, to learn about the City's plans for Falaise Park, participate in a BioBlitz of the park, and learn about Still Creek. Try on a bird costume, make a rope out of plants and enjoy some refreshments.
  • Info Pop-Ups - An opportunity for the community to learn about Still Creek and ask questions of staff:
    • Thursday, October 12, 2023 - VPL Renfrew Branch, 2:00 - 4:30 pm
    • Tuesday, October 17, 2023 - Renfrew Park Community Centre, 4:00 - 7:00 pm
    • Wednesday, October 25, 2023 - Thunderbird Community Centre, 3:00 - 6:00 pm
  • Still Creek Fest - Saturday, November 4, 1:00 - 4:00 pm - Join us, Still Moon Arts, and Stream of Dreams for a community celebration of Still Creek, featuring wooden fish painting to update the Still Creek Fish on Fences mural, Community Vision Quilt needle felting, children's entertainment and much more.

We’re currently finishing some additional technical work and studies to understand how we can keep Still Creek healthy, including maintaining the flow of groundwater to the creek year-round. This analysis means we won’t have a Draft Plan ready to share this fall: public engagement on the Draft Plan is now scheduled for early 2024. Our fall events are information updates and a chance for the community to learn more about Still Creek.

    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.

    The City is are exploring changes to allow multiplexes (buildings up to six units on a single lot) in low density neighbourhoods across the city. 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. You can a video to learn about Missing Middle Housing here.

    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:

    關於研究地區邊界可能有的變更

    於2022年7月獲批的溫哥華計劃為本市的未來發展提供了長期規劃。我們正在考慮變更研究地區的規劃邊界,將被定義為「村落」(villages)的幾個地區包含到溫哥華計劃之中。

    溫哥華計劃中的「村落」(villages)是提供本地工作機會、日常需求、地方特色和社會聯繫的較小型商業和社區用途聚集地。這些地區通過多拼屋、城市屋和最高6層的低層公寓,提供新的住屋選擇,將會吸引更多不同年齡、收入和背景的人士進入社區。

    在計劃草案階段,將確定 Rupert 和 Renfrew 車站地區規劃的最終研究地區邊界。

    Potensiyal na pagbabago sa boundary ng lugar ng pag-aaral

    Vancouver Plan, inaprubahan noong Hulyo 2022, ay nagbibigay ng pangmatagalang plano para sa Lungsod. Tinitingnan naming baguhin ang boundary ng plano ng lugar ng pag-aaral para makasama ang ilang mga lugar na natukoy bilang ‘mga village’ sa Vancouver Plan.

    Ang ‘mga village’ ng Vancouver Plan ay nakikinita na naka-orient sa paligid ng maliit na koleksiyon ng mga komersiyal at pang komunidad na paggamit na nakakapagbigay ng mga lokal na trabaho, mga pang-araw-araw na pangangailangan, at paglalagay ng lugar sa komunidad at mga panlipunang koneksiyon. Ang mga bagong opsiyon sa pabahay, sa anyo ng mga multiplex, townhome, at mga low-rise na apartment na hanggang 6 na palapag, ay magdadala ng mas maraming tao na magkakaiba ang edad, kita at background sa komunidad.

    Sa yugto ng Draft Plan, ang final na mga boundary sa lugar ng pag-aaral para sa Plano ng Lugar ng Rupert at Renfrew Station ay kukumpirmahin.
