Planning for the future: Lynn Valley central
Are you interested in what Lynn Valley will look like and feel like 10, 20 and 50 years from now? We know you are – public response to the redevelopment of the area around Lynn Valley Mall has been the topic of some passionate debate for some time now.
In January, North Vancouver District Council voted to solicit more public input on the area’s future. Preliminary plans were making some people happy, others not so much.
Questions were raised around densification, traffic, and neighbourhood character. Many of you sent us thoughtful feedback, which we forwarded on to the District as well.
We’re now really excited to learn that Mark Sager, founding partner of Sager LLP and the former mayor of West Vancouver, has been asked to engage the community in another round of discussion that promises to look at the potential development of Lynn Valley’s core with fresh eyes and an open mind. Learn more about Mark’s mission here, and put your thinking caps on – he wants to hear from you!
In other development news….
There’s other new building going on besides that being planned for the mall area. Lynn Valley will continue to change over the years to come, and we’ll do our best to keep you fully informed as the neighbourhood explores its possibilities and potential.
Whether it’s the town centre re-imagining itself, a church being redeveloped, or new residential developments being introduced, we’ll work with North Van District, property owners and developers to bring you the information you want to know. If you have feedback or questions, we’ll point you in the right direction.
