In the summer of 2017, the City of Vancouver’s Department of Planning, Urban Design and Sustainability launched Places for People Downtown, an engagement campaign on the future of downtown Vancouver’s public spaces over the next 30 years.

The DVBIA partners with the City of Vancouver on the management and activation of public spaces and we have seen great success with our well-used perches and laneways. We plan to create and activate many more beautiful, safe, and accessible outdoor places throughout downtown in the coming years.

The City has developed a draft vision statement for downtown and a set of five goals to help deliver it. The vision and goals will inform the next phases of Places for People Downtown. We’d love for you to share your thoughts on City’s goals for public spaces by filling out this short 2 minute survey…
