Laneway Walkshops: March 22 & 23

These walkshops are part of the West End Community Plan

Laneway “Walkshops”

Attend a “walkshop” and think about how West End laneways could be used in the future, including surface and landscaping treatments, pedestrian facilities, benches, lighting, traffic calming, parking, and infill housing possibilities. Learn about the history and character of the laneways, and observe and discuss how we design these places. The walk will be followed by a workshop where you can share your ideas for laneway improvements.

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.
