Town hall meeting for proposed Harbourside development anticipated for September – North Shore Outlook

Town hall meeting for proposed Harbourside development anticipated for September – North Shore Outlook.

Quoting in part:

Anticipated congestion in the Harbourside area has been a concern of council members since the beginning of the application process. Currently, vehicles can only access the area from the Fell Avenue overpass and a small crossing at Bewicke Avenue.

CNV director of community development, Gary Penway, said a contribution for second overpass was reviewed and it would not be viable.

McCauley, meanwhile, said great progress on traffic and parking planning has been made.

“… [there’s] a commitment from TransLink at this stage to bring a new bus line to the lower road running from Park Royal to Lonsdale Quay that would serve not only Harbourside but also Seaspan and others along the way.”

  1. It is already rigged. Public process is a Kafkaesque show trial.

  2. Interesting comment from Gary Penway as it was his department who originally called the development a “live-work” community. The percentage of people able to do that would like be in the same 0.08% as bicycle commuters.
