(Note correction in headline to Sept 25 for Coquitlam.) Mark your calendars for two important meetings in terms of regional transportation and planning. The first is in Surrey Sept 12 and second, in Coquitlam Sept 25. For anyone interested but unable to attend, these “Metro Vancouver Sustainability Community Breakfasts” are typically available afterward in the online video archive (in contrast to Metro Board meetings where public officials conduct public business, which are still NOT archived, and and Committee meetings, which are not event recorded on video!).
Managing Growth: Integrating Land Use and Transportation Planning
Metro Vancouver, Member Municipalities and Translink are implementing a Regional Growth Strategy (RGS) that includes working together to better integrate land use and transportation in the region. Join us to learn how the RGS will focus over 2/3 of the region’s growth into Urban Centres and Frequent Transit Development Areas (FTDAs): priority locations along transit corridors which could accommodate higher density development.
