Walkshops Invitation: Community Plan

What follows is a message from the West End Community Plan city staff.

West-End-Community-Plan-WALWest End Commercial Streets “Walkshops”

The West End’s four commercial streets (Davie, Denman, Robson and Alberni Streets) are part of the community planning process.

We invite you to attend a “walkshop” where we will encourage you to think about the way we design buildings, sidewalks, roads, landscaping, street furniture, signage, weather protection, patios, and other elements that make up a vibrant, active and viable commercial street. You will have an opportunity to learn about the history and character of these streets, and to observe and discuss how we design these important community places. The walk will be followed by a two-hour facilitated workshop intended to allow participants an opportunity to share what they think is working, and also where there are opportunities for improvements.

Note: We have scheduled most of the walkshops on weekday afternoons to help ensure participation by members of the local business community. If you are unable to make it to your preferred walkshop(s), we will be posting the material and feedback summary from the sessions on our webpage. You’ll be able to review this and submit your ideas and feedback to us online.

Best regards,

West End Planning Team
