Register online for this week’s Workshop with the City of Vancouver planners!
[UPDATE: After JARA began calling residents on the phone and registering them, we were able to fill all 70 spots!! If you are unable to make it but want to have a say, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and joyceareaRA@gmail.com. Tell the City we need MORE casual sessions like this!]
Wednesday, April 6 at 7pm at Collingwood Neighbourhood House
Mandatory Registration: http://www.eventbrite.ca/e/plan-talk-tickets-24035971237
JARA and community members have had a big win. The City will host two more information sessions to engage our community about the City’s plans for Joyce Station.
Modeled after our last successful JARA Community Dialogue, the City of Vancouver will host a workshop for residents on a variety of topics:
- Transportation and pedestrian connections
- Housing affordability
- We have to keep this neighbourhood affordable for the working class!
- (the City doesn’t have a clear idea of what we need!)
- Building types and heights
- let’s get a clear picture of what we actually need and some evidence as to why!
This is a great opportunity to have our questions answered on the spot by City staff. Please attend and bring your ideas and concerns. It is a positive sign to see the City working with us but we still need to ensure that decisions made with the community are built into the new plans.
There are 19 spots left [UPDATE: the event is now waitlist only]. Let’s keep pushing for genuine consultation and real commitments from city planners. Recognized as stakeholders by the City, JARA had a big hand in crafting these workshops.
See you on Wednesday! http://www.eventbrite.ca/e/plan-talk-tickets-24035971237
