Thinking about the future of our city…

A new city-wide plan for Vancouver?

CityPlan, Vancouver’s city-wide framework for guiding decisions on City programs, was adopted by Council in 1995 after extensive public process.

As it nears the end of its projected 20-year life, the question of a new city-wide plan for Vancouver is often raised in articles and discussions about the city’s future.

This website summarizes some of the Vancouver City Planning Commission’s recent work on the subject, and provides links to some basic resources that provide an introduction to this complex topic.
