Park Dedication Removal Bylaw/Alternative Approval Process
To accommodate construction of the new Keith Road Bridge and adjacent road widening, the District will need to remove a narrow strip of embankment land from Bridgman/Seylynn parks, along the curb on the south side of Keith Road. Under the Community Charter, the District cannot remove a park dedication without the approval of the electors. If you wish to object to the removal of this land from the park, you must file an Elector Response Form by the August 29 deadline. Click here to learn more. It is important to note that a piece of land north of the roadway which is greater than that being removed south of the roadway is being rezoned to park status as replacement park land.

Residents are reminded to exercise caution around pools
Summer is here! As our thoughts turn to fun in the sun, we’d like to remind you to stay safe when you’re enjoying backyard pools. In particular, children should never be left unattended in or near a pool.
District Bylaw 7353 requires that all outdoor pools and uncovered spas/hot tubs must be enclosed with a non-climbable 4 foot (122 cm) high fence. All gates must be self-closing and self-latching. In lieu of a fence, spas and hot tubs may have a solid, lockable cover that prevents unauthorized access. It is the responsibility of property owners and occupants to ensure that all fences, gates and locking spa covers are maintained in good working order at all times and to recognize that they may need to be repaired, upgraded or replaced over time.
For more pool safety information and other important tips for you and your children please visit the Red Cross and Health Canada websites. Thank you for ensuring that your pool remains a safe place to play!
At the request of Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Todd Stone, the Mayors’ Council on Regional Transportation has delivered a 30-year transportation strategy and identified the first 10 years of investment priorities for Metro Vancouver.

Work expected to begin in early 2015
With improved traffic flow and reduced congestion in mind, the District of North Vancouver has begun design work to replace the 70-year old Keith Road Bridge over Lynn Creek. The new bridge and roadway will enable a more efficient commute, improve east-west connectivity through the District and support future Highway 1 improvements. Curious what the new bridge and surrounding roadway will look like? Check out the plans and drawings and visit our project page for more information.
