The proposed zoning changes to create new 4-storey zones may go to Public Hearing at Vancouver City Council later in the spring or during the summer.
A presentation and analysis of the City's proposed new 4-storey zones will be followed by open discussion, questions and answers. Additional guests will include Elizabeth Murphy and a former City of Vancouver planner. Joseph and Jeanette Jones will speak about the experience in the Norquay area in East Vancouver (around Kingsway and Nanaimo) following the City's upzoning and creation of new zones in 2013 and 2016 in that neighbourhood (further documented on the Eye on Norquay blog).
The City of Vancouver's materials from the March 14th and 17th Open Houses can be found online at vancouver.ca/gw. The area-wide zoning changes would allow for townhouses/rowhouses, 4-storey apartments and 4-storey mixed residential/commercial on parcels of land that are currently zoned for duplex and multiple family dwellings. Certain zones would encourage lot assembly by allowing for additional increases in density. The information panels from the City's last Open House and the proposed changes are listed in the following links:
