From our friends at Metro:

What will our region look like when the population increases by 50% to 3.4 million residents? And what decisions do we need to make now in order to support the sustainability of the Metro Vancouver Region through the year 2040?

    While Metro Vancouver is looking for the public’s input in how best to shape this city’s future, which I think is absolutely necessary, TransLink too is undergoing a similar process of public consultations. They’ve set-up a website, where you can voice your opinion on a number of topics that will form TransLink’s 2040 Vision and they will also be holding a series of public consultations, beginning June 1st.
