The Anatomy of the Downtown Metrotown Plan

October 5, 2016- 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Earlier this year, in response to the demovictions crisis that is displacing more than 600 households, Burnaby City Council announced a new plan for the Metrotown neighbourhood: The “Downtown” Metrotown Plan.

What promises does this plan hold for the existing majority renter community in Metrotown? Come to a public forum about Mayor Corrigan’s plan to turn Metrotown into a “downtown” for Burnaby.

We will focus on defining the potential social impact of the plan for more than 3000 apartment units within its scope, and for the region as a whole, which is in the midst of a widely acknowledged rental crunch. After discussing the effects of this plan, we will focus on what we can do to stop it.
