The Community Vision for Riley Park South Cambie is one of many vision statements that were developed by local communities as part of the city of Vancouver’s City Plan. In 2005, City Council approved this community’s Vision following an extensive consultation process with local citizens. The document at the right provides an in-depth report on the major recommendations contained in the RPSC Vision statement.
Since the Vision’s publication, however, the Riley Park South Cambie area has undergone extensive change and continues to experience some of the most dramatic shifts in housing and population in the city. Oakridge Centre, Canada Line, Hillcrest Centre, Cambie Corridor Redevelopment together with dozens of major housing redevelopment projects have occurred with breathtaking speed.
Notwithstanding those many changes, RPSC works to maintain the quality of life of our community by referencing the many recommendations that the community made in 2005. Some Vision Directions are translated into actions and projects through more detailed planning — for example: to identify the specific location and design of new types of housing; to design improvements to community shopping areas and to pressure the City and Developers to maintain the values and qualities that have made this area one of the finest places to live in Vancouver.
Riley Park South Cambie Community Vision group can only provide leadership with the support and participation of local residents.
