City to hold Community Office Hours to engage residents on resident protection policy

Over the next few weeks we will see a variety of opportunities to work with *RePlan volunteers and City staff in helping shape a number key community planning projects.

A picture of the "community edge" as outlined in the FCS Terms of Reference. The area includes the 6th Ave. corridor, including the railway corridor.

The areas outlined in purple represent the “Community Edge” as defined in the False Creek South Terms of Reference (see link to this report at the bottom of the page). The “Community Edge” will be subject to detailed planning under the Phase 1 planning program.

Since city council approved the False Creek South Planning Terms of Reference in May, City staff have been preparing the details of a public process to roll out through the Fall and into the new year. In addition to ongoing discussions relating to resolving lease-end issues for strata, co-ops and non-profit leaseholders, City staff will be a commencing community-wide outreach on two key plans:

  • The Resident Retention and Protection Plan (RPRP) will be a first of its kind policy in the City of Vancouver. The RPRP will act as a “safety net”, filling the gaps in existing rental tenant protection policies to ensure that all FCS residents have affordable options to remain in the neighbourhood

  • Residents will have several opportunities over the next several weeks to provide feedback on an early draft of the plan

  • Over the next few months, walking tours, workshops and other events will explore the past, present and future. These activities will work with residents and city-wide stakeholders to identify draft neighbourhood-wide planning principles (a vision) that will guide the evolution of the neighbourhood

  • The planning principles will inform the development of more detailed design principles for the “community edge” and multi-day design charette in Spring, 2018

The first wave of opportunities come this month with staff seeking input on the emerging draft Resident Protection and Retention Policy (RPRP). City staff are busy booking space in the community where they intend to hold Community Office Hours over weekdays and weekends and at different times of day.

“When is this happening?”

Engagement dates related to the RPRP and the development of community planning principles will be announced over the coming days. Watch for emails from *RePlan and updates on the City’s False Creek South Neighbourhood Planning Program page.
