PETITION TO VANCOUVER CITY COUNCIL ON DEVELOPMENT OF THE FRASER STREET COMMUNITY

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


The Fraser Street community is a model of socio-economic and cultural diversity, with a long history of residential neighbourhoods and independent small businesses.

Currently there is a rapid proliferation of land assemblies and development applications in the Fraser Street community.

The development applications do not conform to the existing Community Plan, which is some 20 years old.

Vancouver City Council has indicated its intention to develop a city-wide plan that has not yet been determined.

The Fraser Street community wants development that respects the principles of community inclusion, affordability and thoughtful, comprehensive planning.

THEREFORE, we the undersigned, call upon Vancouver City Council to:

Ensure that the Fraser Street community is properly consulted in all significant development decisions affecting our neighbourhood;

Ensure that development provides affordable housing and affordable premises for independent businesses;

Ensure that sufficient community amenities be provided that meet the needs of residents, including green space, transit, childcare, schools, arts and recreation;

Ensure that development respects the historical, geographical and aesthetic uniqueness of the Fraser Street community; and

Ensure that development takes place within a comprehensive plan for the Fraser Street community.
