Take a moment to take
Think City Survey!

Think City is developing a citizens’ agenda this fall on the topics
that had the most support at last October’s Dream Vancouver conference –
affordable housing, transportation and citizen engagement.

The survey will gauge support for five policy options in each of the
three issue areas.

Do you want free public
transit downtown? Does the city need to reform the at-large voting system?
Should the city maintain rental units by banning condo conversions?

These are just some of the questions the survey
poses. It is
Think City‘s intention to present the findings to the public this
fall, as we head into a civic election.
