Connecting the Core - Submission #96
We protect the backbone of Vancouver's restaurant and hospitality businesses-- the Flats' $1 billion food industry and 2,000 jobs-- from moving to cheaper land to the south, and support it with a market for locally grown food and an urban agriculture zone. The vital railyards stay, bridged by new bike/pedestrian overpasses. Reduced traffic on Prior reunites Strathcona neighbours. Terminal Ave. is greener. New spaces for artists and innovation.
