  2. Meeting #10
    The Community Organizes a Meeting for the Community.

    What happens when the community hosts their own meeting on Little Mountain? Pretty well everything gets said that needs to be said.

    NOTE: At the 15 minute point there's a primer on DENSITY in Vancouver that will be of interest to everyone.

    The redevelopment of Little Mountain, must contain a major social housing component, while creating new rental and purchase options that are affordable to ordinary citizens. The community has also outlined a number of necessary amenities which must be built, taking into account increases in density, and proposed density increases along Main St and the Cambie Street corridors.

    Vancouver is internationally known for its enlightened urbanism. The recently completed Olympic Village has sparked controversy on the success or failure of both its economic and social goals. Though not as big as the Olympic Village, the Little Mountain redevelopment is big, 16 acres in size. Will the Little Mountain redevelopment put Vancouver back on track, or will it be Part II of the same conflicted development strategy?

    This recording will be of interest the community of Little Mountain, citizens of Vancouver, as well as urbanists across North America.

    I hope that by reviewing these videos you gain a sharper perspective on the issues. Every video that I place up on Vimeo takes a considerable amount of time and energy. I manage to post one or two new episodes each month, so stay tuned, and I'd love to hear your comments.
