Overview of the N/NE Quadrant April SAC Meeting

At the April 12 meeting, the SAC heard presentations and discussed elements of the freeway interchange project and the draft Quadrant Plan.

Discussion on the freeway interchange project focused on options being considered for the area North of Broadway. Five alternative street alignments, and related pros and cons, were discussed for local streets including Flint, Vancouver, Wheeler and a possible new east-west freeway overcrossing at Hancock/Dixon. These options were also discussed on the ground during the SAC walking tour held on April 5th. A recommendation on which option to pursue for the North of Broadway area is expected at the May 10 SAC meeting.

The project team introduced draft Quadrant Plan goals, policies and selected implementation actions and reported on preliminary directions for building height regulations based on feedback from the March Land Use Subcommittee meeting. Due to limited time for discussion, the SAC was asked to review the proposals over the following two weeks and provide comments to the project team via email. A revised draft of the goals, policies and actions will be prepared for the May 10 SAC meeting. A full draft Quadrant Plan is expected to be available in June.
