Open houses set to discuss Richmond lane standards
02 January 2018
The City of Richmond will be consulting with the public on lane standards in January. The consultation will include two public open houses on Wednesday, January 10 and Wednesday, January 17, as well as online consultation on LetsTalkRichmond.ca.
The City previously announced plans to construct a paved lane along an unopened City lane dedication between Richmond Street and Broadway Street, from No. 1 Road to 2nd Avenue, following completion of sanitary sewer repairs along that corridor. Public consultation will now be expanded to seek community input on a number of lane standard options, including:
- Paved Lane
- Green Swale Lane
- Country Lane
Public input will also be sought on other design measures, including traffic calming options.
The public open houses will be held at the Steveston Community Centre, 4111 Moncton Street, on Wednesday, January 10 and Wednesday, January 17 from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Great West Room.
Information boards detailing the options and feedback forms will be available at the open houses. City staff will be in attendance to answer questions and provide additional information.
In addition, from Wednesday, January 10 through Sunday, January 28, interested individuals can visit www.LetsTalkRichmond.ca for more information on the lane options and complete the online feedback form.
While the consultation will be of primary interest to the residents along the lane currently being considered, all members of public are invited to provide input as the City may utilize this feedback in the future.
It is important to note that the City has no specific plans to develop any other unopened lane dedications at this time. Consistent with Council Policy 9016, lanes will only be constructed where there is a City-owned lane dedication and access is required for sewer or other infrastructure replacement.
