Most of Norquay lies within the boundaries of the Vancouver local area called Renfrew-Collingwood.
The City of Vancouver has repeatedly stonewalled requests for information on how the first two “neighbourhood centre” planning areas (Kingsway & Knight and Norquay) were selected. Both were subjected to mass rezoning of hundreds of acres of single-family areas. The two lie side-by-side in the heart of East Vancouver.
Norquay itself is a demonstrated amenity desert: no community centre, no swimming pool, no ice rink, no library, no neighbourhood house. Despite promises, already dense population gets added to, with no corresponding increase in amenity.
There is far too little City of Vancouver comparative data that spans all 22 local areas. A recent report on Vancouver trees shows that Renfrew-Collingwood ranks near the bottom on that scale too.
One more piece of data to correlate City of Vancouver density-dumping strategy with existing subpar local conditions in Norquay. Bleed green while building out inequities.
