Citizens' Assembly on the Grandview-Woodland Community Plan: Final Report

Submitted by Christie Nash on December 18, 2015 - 9:03am

In September 2013, Vancouver City Council voted to form a Citizens' Assembly to help create a better community plan for Grandview-Woodland.  This marked the beginning of an ambitious civic process: 48 members of the community would work together over nine months to develop recommendations to inform the development of Grandview-Woodlan'd forthcoming community plan- a document that will shape land use and development over the coming 30 years.

This report represents the culmination of nine months of intensive work, led by the members of Canada's first Citizens' Assembly dedicated to the difficult task of developing guidance for a new community plan. It includes, a description of the process and a summary of recommendations. 

The report was published by the members of the Citizens' Assembly on the Grandview-Woodland Community Plan.
