City Council Motion to rezone West Point Grey – Defeated

Community responds to councillor’s motion to rezone WPG without consultation

On Thursday December 7, 2017 a motion was posted to the City of Vancouver’s website, to be considered at the following Council meeting Tuesday December 12, 2017. This motion was proposed by one NPA Councillor, based on his personal opinion, to rezone a large portion of West Point Grey to 6 storey apartments without any public consultation process.

The West Point Grey Residents Association responded by sending a letter to City of Vancouver Council on Friday December 8, 2017 as shown below, that states our position in opposition.

In addition, the Coalition of Vancouver Neighbourhoods, representing 28 neighbourhood groups of which WPGRA is a member, also wrote a letter in opposition.
