West End Plan extension – Council decision due today

(Epilogue: Council voted NOT to extend the West End community plan process, but did give an open-ended extension to Grandview-Woodland plus $250,000 in extra funds and offered to create a “Citizens Assembly,” and also granted extensions for Marpole and Downtown Eastside planning processes.) Today a decision may be made by City Council regarding the potential to extend four community planning processes in Vancouver. WEN has written to City Council asking for an extension. A citywide rally was held on September 24, with a few hundred people present, showing a sense of unity across the City. After about eighty speakers, deliberation by Council is likely to begin at about 5 pm. The proceedings are on live web video now.


Whatever the decision, the results will have serious implications and require ongoing public input.
