MAP Strathcona: Mobility Advocacy Plan

Map Strathcona postcard side 2

With grant support from the Real Estate Foundation of BC, we’ve launched a unique and innovative project to develop a Mobility Advocacy Plan (MAP Strathcona) for our business district – the first of its kind in Canada.

The purpose of this project is to develop a community-based mobility and transportation vision and supporting action plan for the SBIA and project partners to pursue. The project will explore a range of transportation and mobility issues, including goods movement, transit, curbside uses, active transportation, car and bike sharing opportunities, and parking. The planning process will also help educate SBIA members about the transportation impacts of upcoming changes in and around Stathcona, like the Georgia/Dunsmuir viaducts removal, Centerm expansion, new residential/commercial developments, and numerous City of Vancouver plans that will impact our area.
