Over the next few weeks the Vancouver Public Spaces Network will be hosting a series of workshops that will help develop and outline “What would make Broadway a Great Street”.

I received the following in an email from one of the event organizers: “We are particularly looking to connect with people who have an interest in urban design, architecture, transportation and land-use planning and public space… and, of course, anyone else who has ideas on how to improve the social and cultural life of Broadway Corridor.”

The first public event will take place at 7:00pm Monday June 28th over at the Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House (800 East Broadway). The next will be 7:00pm July 7th at Kitsilano Neighbourhood House (2325 West 7th).

Both events will feature a presentation from the City of Vancouver as well as ideas, brainstorms and discussions about how Broadway can be transformed into a destination for pedestrians, shoppers, cyclists, residents and visitors.

    Obviously, density along Broadway would be likely to increase in the future, so I’d be curious to hear what people think about the recent revelation that high density residential results in a net loss in city revenue. (when they replace stand-alone commercial units)

    Having been to some of the stakeholder meetings regarding possible rapid transit options, it will be interesting to hear how transportation can be integrated and enhance Broadway as a destination. The key is getting the land-use right.
