Have your say on the Arbutus Greenway

September 30, 2016

The Arbutus Greenway was envisioned to be a 9km long active transportation corridor. If built with a smooth surface, it would provide provide an exciting new route through Vancouver which provided maximum safety and accessibility for all people. Here is HUB's Media Release telling the stories of a wheelchair user and a family hoping to cycle the Greenway.

In September, the City held five public workshops on temporary design options for the Arbutus Greenway and the project team has also received more than 500 emails, letters and 3-1-1 calls, as well as presenting at four City of Vancouver advisory committees.

The Arbutus Greenway project team will be holding a public information session on the route's temporary path and explaining how the public’s input has shaped the final design. The session will take place on Saturday, October 15, 10 am-2pm at Kitsilano Neighbourhood House, 2305 West 7th Avenue

These meetings will be drop-in info session format. City staff will be available to answer questions and you can also view the information boards and consultation summary report.

The team is still accepting comments on the Arbutus Greenway and we encourage you to email arbutusgreenway@vancouver.ca and express you support for a temporary path the full length of the corridor, and hard surfacing for that path.

You can also email mayorandcouncil@vancouver.ca with your input on the Greenway design.
