Vancouver is growing and with growth, comes change.
To make sure our community is safe, livable and has good jobs now and in the future, we must make smart decisions.
With public input, City and community leaders have identified projects and programs intended to keep our city thriving over the next decade. The proposed plan is called A Stronger Vancouver.
Make our operations and fire station buildings earthquake safe
Increase safety in our parks by upgrading outdated playgrounds and increasing accessibility
Create safer roads for everyone – pedestrians, cyclists and drivers
Invest in areas of the city that have been underfunded in the past
Develop attractive public spaces for residents
Enhance neighborhoods by improving parks with new picnic tables, benches, paths and signage
Attract businesses by improving and building new public infrastructure
Make our downtown and other commercial areas vibrant and attractive to employers and employees
Create the opportunity for thousands of new high-quality jobs in improved business areas
City Council is continuing their deliberations on the recommendations in the Stronger Vancouver package. Read the Community Feedback & Engagement report presented to City Council >
UPDATE: A Stronger Vancouver initiative was placed on hold in 2020 due to the
COVID-19 pandemic. The City Manager's Recommended 2021-22 Budget includes revisiting the initiative in 2021. It is anticipated that City Council will begin discussions about a path forward in early 2021.
