Vancouver has it right - Ecodensity

Vancouver's new Ecodensity initiative is being incorrectly described as a high-density plan by the media, and even a higher-density downtown plan by the Globe and Mail. They got the story wrong.

The plan tries to distribute density that is higher than before in low-density neighbourhoods, and concentrates on Vancouver's 18 neighbourhood centres. High quality of neighbourhood planning and of architecture are hallmarks of the plan. It also addresses affordability, promises investments in greenspace and public amenities, and proposes to start the process with extensive public consultation to help citizens make choices.

Bravo, Vancouver.
