At the request of the City of Vancouver’s Planning Department, the City Program hosted “Views of Views” on October 5 at the Segal Business School. Could we get a few hundred people to show up to discuss something as arcane as the view corridors that for the last twenty years have shaped the development of the downtown peninsula?
Apparently we could:
Following a presentation by planning director Brent Toderian, architect Richard Henriquez and past co-director of planning Larry Beasley spoke against and for the corridors (with some important agreement), and dealt in detail with the consequences on urban form, public amenity and the meaning of Vancouver.
Metro’s urban affairs columnist Derek Moscato reported on the evening here.
The Planning Department is still encouraging comment. You can find more background and send in your opinion here.
