Scope and content

Series consists of records relating to Gordon Price s research, planning, and evaluation activities concerning transportation and land use. Records stem from his involvement on City Council's Standing Committee on Planning and Environment, as well as his participation on the board of the Greater Vancouver Transportation Authority. Transportation issues include traffic problems, transit infrastructure and service, and discussions with CP Rail regarding a potential streetcar line. City planning records relate primarily to communities in the downtown and False Creek areas. These records cover social and housing strategies, zoning proposals, traffic movement, parks and open space strategies, multiculturalism, density, and urban growth. Series also includes records relating to BC Place, which Councillor Price inherited from Councillor Marguerite Ford.

Document types include copies of development proposals, workshop handouts, consultants reports, discussion papers, copies committee meetings minutes and public hearings, copies of draft bylaws, and correspondence with the public.
