About the Presentation:

In 2018 the City of Vancouver implemented substantial changes to the way it regulates the mobility needs of new developments. In addition to eliminating parking minimums within Downtown, increasing bicycle parking requirements, and broadening requirements for passenger loading, a comprehensive TDM policy was developed with mandatory TDM requirements for many developments. John and Rosemarie will discuss the development of these changes including the policy directions, data collection and research, public consultation and implementation. They will also address the practical matters of how applications under the new TDM plan can be presented, and answer some frequently asked questions.
