Arbutus Lands Visioning Process

Back to ProjectsBack to projects page

The intention of the Visioning Process is to generate a series of community-driven visions for sustainable future uses of the Arbutus Lands, a historic rail corridor running through the west side of Vancouver.

The project involved engaging a team of highly respected land use professionals, academics and sustainability experts to oversee the process; facilitating a series of community Co-Design workshops in partnership with the Co-Design Group; holding several community open houses; and leading a 3-day design charrette.
