    Great idea! So often its difficult to find local suppliers of common goods (even though they exist).

    I'd also suggest that the city allow strata sub-division, so that laneway homes could be bought separately and young folks could being to actually afford their own home...would also increase sense of community with even tighter knit neighbourhoods.

    Some interesting ideas here.

    First, a bit of clarification: London doesn’t prohibit cars from entering the city centre; rather it imposes a fee to discourage their use. This is commonly called congestion charging and it can serve multiple purposes: first, it reduces motor vehicle congestion so that the people who really need to drive (e.g. goods movement, taxis, and essential service vehicles) can get around without getting stuck in gridlock; second, it provides a potential revenue source which can be directed to support improvements to more sustainable modes (public transit, active transportation).

    Congestion pricing is an interesting idea for Vancouver — both as a means to reduce congestion and to generate revenue to improve transit service. It might make more sense to think about it at the regional (rather than city centre or municipal) level, though, given that it would affect travel patterns across the metropolitan area. It would also…

    Requires support from TransLink. The City will continue to support this idea, through measures including secured rights-of-way (e.g. the centre median on 1st Avenue near the Olympic Village). The recent Olympic Line streetcar demonstration was very successful and helps make the business case for this project.

    The City supports Metro Vancouver’s plans to ban food scraps from the incinerator and landfills by 2015. The City will collaborate with Metro Vancouver to develop and implement a plan to ensure apartments, condos, businesses and institutions have access to food scraps collection programs before the ban comes into effect.

    I love this idea! One person's trash is another person's treasure. I'm often looking for materials on Craig's list - what I like about this is that it would reduce vehicle trips (one stop shopping) and help normalize the re-use of scrap materials - there are Habitat for Humanity's ReStores in Vancouver, but perhaps the city could help expand this. Good idea!
