Kingsway Developments

 
 
This information resource was launched in April 2014 along with the separate posting titled Kingsway in Vancouver. Read the posting for context and explanation. The difficulties of assembling data like this are enormous. Any corrections or update tips will be appreciated.

In response to questioning, top City of Vancouver planning officials recently indicated that plan monitoring is not anticipated for any local area other than the Downtown Eastside. Even that proposal could easily add up to one more empty promise.

Joke of Vancouver

        Question:  What do you call a plan that has no monitoring?
        Answer:  Chaos — without the theory.
