Petitioning Vancouver Mayor and City Council

I am opposed to the proposed amendments to the Downtown Official Development Plan. Vote NO on March 26, 2015

NOTE:  Due to the large number of speakers on March 24, the Public Hearing was recessed and will continue on March 26.  Please vote and spread the word.  We must have your vote before 3pm on March 26 for it to count.  Thank you!

I am against the proposed amendments to the Downtown Official Development Plan (DODP) for the following reasons:

  • The proposed definition of “social housing” removes support for those most in need
  • The proposed amendments benefit developers, not people in need of affordable housing 
  • The DODP and its proposed amendments are not intelligible, simple or direct, as required by law 
  • The City did not provide sufficient detail for the public to understand the pros and cons of the proposed amendments

Support this petition!  Send a strong message to City Hall that the proposed amendments are not acceptable, because they

  • Reduce City Council oversight
  • Diminish the public’s role in providing input in the future of our City
  • Allow City planners to bypass public input
  • Use confusing, inconsistent and conflicting technical jargon
  • Allow developers unrestricted, run-away density
  • Risk increasing homelessness and the price of housing
  • Do not provide sufficient information
  • Increase the power of the un-elected Development Permit Board
