On Feb 13, City Council will vote to sell off our public skyline views and let towers hide the mountains.
We need to stop them.

What's happening?

On February 13th, the City of Vancouver's city council is set to vote on approving the Northeast False Creek (NEFC) neighbourhood plan. The NEFC plan will disrupt Vancouver’s public views that have been protected by the City's view cone policy since 1989. Vancouver's public views with the iconic mountain backdrop are free irreplaceable public assets and amenities that all Vancouverites can enjoy.

THE PROPOSAL

The proposal wants to allow three condo towers to cover up the mountain backdrop and penetrate the Cambie and 10th Avenue view cone near City Hall, one of the most important view cones in Vancouver. Two of the towers are Concord Pacific's and one is crown corporation Pavco's. The City claims that the tall towers will frame the new Georgia gateway into Downtown, but urban planning experts have condemed this reasoning as we must protect our public views.

WHAT'S AT STAKE

If city council votes to let these three towers through, this will set precedence for other real estate developers to pressure the City to allow them to penetrate the view cones too. This will be the end of Vancouver's unique mountain skyline as we know it. We cannot let city council and crown corporation Pavco privatize our free public views.

What Vancouverites are saying
