Event Description:

Metro 2050, Metro Vancouver’s Regional Growth Strategy, is the regional federation’s draft vision for accommodating anticipated future growth to the region. The update is being undertaken to: extend the regional growth strategy to the year 2050, consider significant drivers of change like affordability, climate change, resilience, and equity and to implement policy improvements in a number of areas. Metro 2050 was released in June 2021 and is now open for comment until November 26, 2021.
Transport 2050 is TransLink’s draft new Regional Transportation Strategy, the blueprint for the next 30 years. As part of TransLink’s largest-ever public engagement, and as a shared strategy, Transport 2050 is being developed in partnership with municipalities, Metro Vancouver, the Province, and Indigenous Nations. TransLink has released the Transport 2050 draft strategy for public input between Oct. 12 and 29. Transport 2050 proposes the vision, goals, and strategies for the future regional transportation system.
This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to shape the future of how we move and live, and respond to opportunities and challenges, such as affordability, congestion, climate change. TransLink and Metro Vancouver are working together on these strategies to ensure that long-term transit investment and development go hand-in-hand, so that we can rise to the challenge of affordability in a growing region. Hear about the highlights of these two updated strategies, and pose your questions directly to Metro Vancouver Regional Planning as well as TransLink team members.
