A Day Care/School is being proposed for the Riverfront field (3000 block East Kent Avenue South). It came to my attention that with the new Day Care/School, the remaining space will not be long enough for you to continue games there. With all of the development going on to the East of Kerr Street, many residents are sad to see yet another piece of green space lost to development. The new fields proposed for the East Fraser Lands are not going to be ready for several years but the Day Care is expected next year. My understanding is that right now there is no Development Permit, there is only a proposal for an amendment to the East Fraser Lands development so that this idea can be possible. Now is the time to voice your opinion! There are Day Cares and Schools scheduled for the East development, however, they will take several years as the land is prepared for building. More information can be found at vancouver.ca/rezoning and comments can be sent to the City Project Planner: firstname.lastname@example.org
Comments have to be received by May 16th.
The more comments the City receives the better their final decision will be. There will be a council meeting on this open to the public in the Spring of 2017, date to be announced.
Here is a newspaper clip on the issue:
