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 29, 1996.

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 the park.
