The City of Vancouver made temporary changes to allow physical distancing during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Now the city is asking residents to conduct a survey about what worked / what didn’t and what needs to be done better.
“To help residents physically distance and reduce the risk of COVID-19 to our communities, and to support economic recovery, we are making temporary changes to the use of our roads as part of the Make Roads For People program and public spaces.
We want to know how you use these spaces and how they can be improved. Your feedback will let you know of further improvements and help you maintain physical distance while you exercise and gather outside.
We’re making temporary changes to our streets to help residents distance themselves physically and reduce the risk of COVID-19 to our communities by:
Pop-up places. Creating pop-up places for people to gather outside
Temporary terraces. Approve temporary decks so people can dine out and businesses can keep serving customers
Widening the sidewalk. Create more space to walk and stand in line on busy streets
Room to queue. More space to set up and get on buses at some major bus stops
Slow streets. Calm the traffic to make slow roads more comfortable for people who walk, roll, and bike
Room to move. Reuse of street space for more walking, rolling, and biking along Beach Ave.
These actions also support our ongoing efforts to create safer roads, limit the effects of climate change and improve social connections among residents. We monitor the impact of these initiatives and receive feedback from the public to understand what could become longer term.
Let us know what you think in this short survey. We will collect feedback between August 18 and September 7, 2020. ”
