It's Time, Metro Vancouver

We're studying Congestion Point Charges: charging vehicles for crossing certain congestion hotspots. We're exploring ways this type of charge could work in Metr...o Vancouver to figure out whether this approach would reduce congestion, improve fairness, and support transportation investment in our growing region.

We want to hear your thoughts when online engagement opens on February 26! http://ow.ly/87Y930iijHU

Bundled up inside? Snow is falling in parts of Vancouver! Our crews have been out since Friday putting brine on the streets in preparation for freezing temperatures and potential snowfall. We have also had crews hand salting priority locations and areas. Set your alarm a little early for the morning in case you need extra time to make your commute. Big thanks to all for driving for the conditions. http://ow.ly/Wtze30ioewY

Vancouver City Council has made the historic decision to approve the Northeast False Creek Plan.

The plan will guide the creation of a vibrant waterfront destination, and provides 32 acres of new and renewed parks and open space; one of the most significant deliveries of affordable homes in British Columbia’s history; and the opportunity to reconnect Chinatown and Hogan’s Alley to the rest of the downtown core through a new and improved street network.

The plan also includes... public amenities and facilities such as a new ice rink, community centre, arts pavilion, plazas, gathering spaces, and more.

Learn more about Northeast False Creek, and view the plan, at vancouver.ca/nefc.
