LAST MEETING'S NOTICE OF MOTION
Moved by Commissioner Wilson,
WHEREAS the Provincial Government is in the process of preparing
a short list of options for a refurbished Lions Gate Bridge, the Vancouver
Park Board would like to reiterate its position as stated on July
THAT the Board is absolutely opposed to any Lions Gate crossing that
would require or result in either the expansion of the right-of-way
through Stanley Park or any compromise of Lost Lagoon, including a
4 - lane surface roadway.
THAT the Board would favour any crossing option that would result
in the elimination of vehicular traffic through Stanley Park and a
return of the current right-of-way to traditional park use. A bored
tunnel is the only acceptable way of achieving a widened roadway through
