City of Vancouver Block 51 – Downtown Public Space Consultations

Join the City of Vancouver for two public events that explore the history and importance of Vancouver’s block 51. Learn about innovative public spaces from other cities and offer your thoughts on what future uses the 800-block of Robson and the Vancouver Art Gallery North Plaza can accommodate. These events will end with an illustrated brainstorming exercise that will collect ideas on what type of future uses are desired. Your participation will help shape the future of this central area, and your ideas will be brought to City Council this fall and given to the designer for the North Plaza.
