"The FTN is a network of major corridors throughout Metro Vancouver where transit service runs at least every 15 minutes in both directions throughout the day and into the evening, every day of the week. The Corridor is currently serviced by several bus routes, including the 319 (Scott Road/72 Avenue), which is the FTN service route."
Notes from the April 11 Corporate Report:
The OCP outlines objectives and policies to encourage transit-oriented development along FTN corridors, including the intent to undertake transit-supportive secondary land use plans. The intent focuses on creating compact, complete urban neighbourhoods with higher density mixed uses that align with and support frequent transit service.
The Corridor is subject to ongoing population, employment, and institutional growth. This growth, along with the existing FTN designation and the OCP’s supportive policies, emphasize the need for a land use planning review along the Corridor.
The Corridor already contains a diverse mix of employment and residential uses within several established neighbourhoods, as well as business park and industrial uses within the South Westminster area.
New land use plans will need to be established for the Scott Road portions of the Corridor, as well as potentially the area around Kwantlen Polytechnic University along 72 Avenue.
