The City of Vancouver will next week present a policy report to the Standing Committee on Policy and Strategic Priorities that outlines the forthcoming Broadway Planning Program.
The planning initiative seeks to develop a comprehensive land use policy plan for the Broadway area in conjunction with the anticipated Broadway subway extension to Arbutus Street. The overall Broadway Plan study area, shown in an outline below, includes lands from Clark Drive in the east to Vine Street (two blocks west of Arbutus Street) in the west. The north and south boundaries (16th Avenue) boundaries of the overall study area were determined by considering areas up to 800 metres from existing and future stations.
