Vancouver City Council is scheduled to discuss and adopt a major 100-page document on March 28, 2012: Terms of Reference for “Next Community Plans.” This is for multi-million dollar, two-year community planning processes in Grandview-Woodland, Marpole, and the West End. The TOR document drafted by City staff was made public only on March 21. Many groups and individuals have written to City Council pointing out the lack of time for a proper review of the important document, asking for more time and pointing out needed amendments.
