Submissions for this form are closed.

Please answer the following question by ticking a box below:

In terms of how we live and how Metro defines urban and rural communities, should Lions Bay be designated “general urban” (inside the UCB) or “rural” (outside the UCB)?

How does Metro define an urban community (inside the UCB)?

  • Residential neighbourhoods, shopping, services, institutions, recreation, parks – “urban densities”
  • Place-making, enriched public realm, transit-oriented communities
  • Transit, multiple-occupancy vehicles, cycling, and walking are the preferred modes of transportation.

How does Metro define a rural community (outside the UCB)?

  • Level of development does not require urban services from Metro (sewer or transit within the community)
  • Protect character of rural communities, landscapes, and environmental qualities
  • Uses: low density residential; small scale commercial, industrial, and institutional uses; agriculture
  • Not intended for future urban development
