The Oakridge precinct is on track to become a major metro centre. At this breakfast session, two representatives from the City of Vancouver Engineering and Planning Departments will provide an update on the Cambie Corridor Plan, the associated Utility Servicing Plan, and the new city-wide Utility Cost Development Levy. The Cambie Corridor Plan outlines the opportunities for this single family area to transform. It presents a major city-building opportunity, with an anticipated growth of 30,000 new homes and double the current population. This will make the Cambie Corridor the biggest growth area outside of Downtown Vancouver. Accommodating new residents requires a Utility Servicing Plan to upgrade the water, sewer and drainage utilities which were constructed in the 1950s-60s and are now at capacity. The City Planning Department will provide a summary of the Cambie Corridor Plan and the Engineering Department will outline the phasing of the associated Utility Servicing Plan construction and new city-wide Utility Development Cost Levy which will contribute to funding over $550M of the utility works over the next 8 years.
Speakers Donny Wong, COV Engineering and Jessie Gresley-Jones, COV Planning are the leads implementing the engineering and planning and will speak to this major infrastructure program.
