Marpole: Vancouver's Gateway

What are your GREAT IDEAS for the Marpole Gateway (Eburne Lands)?

The Fraser Basin Council, in response to requests from a range of individuals and organizations interested in the future of the Marpole Gateway / Eburne Lands, will be hosting a Community Ideas Exchange to capture the community's interests and aspirations in the lands along the Fraser River at the southern edge of the neighbourhood.

This workshop will assist the community to generate ideas for the future of the Marpole Gateway / Eburne Lands, roughly bounded by Southwest Marine Drive, Hudson and Barnard Streets, and the Fraser River. This process will complement existing plans in the area.

The ideas generated at the workshop will be taken forward by community spokespeople to a subsequent workshop with key agencies (City of Vancouver, North Fraser Port Authority, YVR, etc.) and landowners. The overall goal is to enhance dialogue and mutual understanding of all interests regarding future development of the Marpole Gateway / Eburne Lands. A synopsis of all presentations will be compiled by the Fraser Basin Council and will be available to the public.


Come out and share your thoughts and ideas for the future of this unique section of the Marpole waterfront. Everyone is welcome!
