The Comox-Helmcken Greenway is part of the City Greenway network, connecting Stanley Park to False Creek. It will run right through the heart of the West End, along Comox Street. City staff held an open house and consultations in the autumn of 2011, and original plans were for construction to begin in the autumn of 2012. Many people have provided input to the City, including ideas, suggestions, concerns, and questions. No announcement was made, but it has come to our attention that in late March the City website was modified to say that “City staff are doing some further analysis to develop the Comox-Helmcken Greenway concept plan.” Among other things, one factor is the newly launched process to develop an up-to-date West End Community Plan. The site goes on to say, “We expect to be able to share a detailed proposed design during a second phase of public consultation in the late summer/early fall of 2012.”
WEN thanks everyone who provided input to the City so far. This is how we can have an active stake in the future or our community.
