A community panel is a representative group of residents and businesses who are randomly-selected to learn, listen and recommend a solution on a complex or difficult community issue.
The Flats Arterial Community Panel is charged with providing a recommendation and rationale for locating a new arterial street in the False Creek Flats. The street will be grade-separated either over or under the Burrard Inlet Rail line to improve safety and create better connections for people driving, taking transit, cycling and walking between East Vancouver and the city core.
Applications to be a Panel member were open to all Vancouver residents and Flats-area businesses. Participants were selected to reflect a mix of representative demographic criteria, relative to the targets described in the Panel’s Terms of Reference.
To read more about the decision to convene a community panel, please see the City of Vancouver’s announcement of the process.
