In this provocative video we take a look from above at how Metro Vancouver has developed over the past 30 years, and how nature has receded in that time. We pose the question: Will we follow the pattern of development of Metro Vancouver or create a new strategy that provides the diverse housing we need but still preserves the natural spaces we treasure? Let's start talking about Conservation Development for Bowen Island.
A permanent greenway network can be achieved if growing it becomes an automatic feature of development on the island. We hope our new Municipal Council will shepherd this idea and customize it for Bowen.
