Pt. Grey Road and Cornwall Ave. link the Burrard Bridge with Jericho Beach. They’re flat, scenic, and popular with pedestrians, runners, recreational and commuting cyclists, and drivers. The city proposes changes to make them safer for “all ages and abilities,” at some cost for drivers. Neighbours are split on what, if anything, to do. Framing the discussion are proponent residents Peter Ladner and Pamela McColl, and an opposing resident leader (name to be announced). Then it’s your turn to ask, observe, opine.
