Abstract
Metro Vancouver is growing rapidly and urban development patterns may no longer align with the regional vision that has helped shape the area’s land use over the last 50 years. This study explores some recent land use and transportation decisions in Metro Vancouver, as well as the political dynamics and decision-making processes that have influenced the region through a series of case studies. Specifically, this report aims to summarize the current state of the region in the context of land use and transportation planning decisions and the intergovernmental collaboration and processes underpinning these decisions. This report also examines the success and legacy of the “Cities in a Sea of Green Vision” LMRPB vision and pathways forward.
