Neighbourhood association established by university

Members elected by residents will help shape and direct public amenities

UBC is creating a University Neighbourhood Association as a form of a community-based model of governance for the area's residents.

Creation of the association was recently approved by UBC's Board of Governors.

The association will have an elected board that will act independently of UBC to determine the municipal amenities and services for residents.

It is expected that the association will be in place next year.

The Board also approved the final draft of the Comprehensive Community Plan (CCP) which will guide development of the 400 hectares of university property.

It outlines plans for developing a community that includes housing and commerce around academic centres to benefit surrounding communities and the region.

The draft now goes to the Greater Vancouver Regional District (GVRD) for review to ensure compliance with the Official Community Plan (OCP) for the area.

If adopted, the CCP will assist in the preparation of more detailed neighbourhood plan proposals.

The OCP is the framework for long-term development on the UBC campus. It sets objectives for land use and transportation and in particular for non-institutional development.

The OCP was approved in 1997 by the university and the GVRD after a comprehensive consultative process involving the public and interest groups on- and off-campus.
