Creating a Unique Main Street
on the 800 to 1200 Blocks of Granville Street

Tuesday, November 27, 2012 | 7:00pm to 9:00pm

TICKETS: Admission is free, but registration is required & limited to 35 people)
LOCATION: Arts & Culture Alliance — #100-938 Howe St. (street level entrance)

Heritage Vancouver invites you to participate in an evening of conversation about turning the south end of Granville Street into a unique main street for the downtown south neighbourhood.

Guests speakers:

George Affleck, City of Vancouver Councillor;
Trevor Boddy, Architecture Curator, Critic and Consultant, and
Anthony Norfolk, Heritage Vancouver, involved in the events leading up to the 1990 paper mentioned below

They'll present ideas about what we could do to create a dynamic and unique main street while at the same time preserving the heritage character of one of Vancouver's oldest commercial streets.

An extract from a 1990, Community Arts Council Paper stated, "the long-term success of Granville Street hinges on the retention of its diversity of mainly low-rise buildings and its human scale….Because of the physical sweep of Granville Street and the fact that it draws the viewer visually from the bridge towards the mountains, it is crucial that the entire length of the street remain lowrise".

Come and join in the conversation.
