News Release
District Launches Street Naming Contest
North Vancouver, B.C. The District of North Vancouver is pleased to announce the launch of its Street Naming Contest and we would like you to take part.
A number of new road connections will be introduced over the coming years in Lynn Valley, Lower Lynn, Lower Capilano and Maplewood; the District is asking residents to help name those new roads. The District is looking for suggestions and ideas that capture the distinct identities and characteristics of each area.
North Vancouver District residents are encouraged to take part in a survey to collect community theme and street name ideas. Please visit to take part. If your suggestion is chosen as the winner you will receive a street sign with your suggested name on it.
In order to have your suggestions and ideas considered, please complete the survey by November 23, 2012. Paper copies of the survey are also available at District Libraries. If you choose to fill out the paper copy, please return it by November 23, 2012 to District Hall (355 West Queens Road, North Vancouver, BC V7N 4N5), to the attention of Vi Mackie.

How about 'We are already naming the streets to accomodate the density which is a foregone conclusion without any real public debate Promenade'

Shouldn't the street building and naming come after and IF the developments are accepted by council and the community? I'm sorry I guess I've got it backwards.

Wendy, you've always had it backwards.

How about Marilyn Baker Way? I think she was the best mayor the DNV ever had.

Dear LVCA member:

Re: Information Meeting - Bosa Re-Zoning Application: Lynn Valley Centre

The November 21st Information Meeting with Bosa is postponed - due to an upcoming consultation on the District's OCP Implementation Plan for Lynn Valley Town Centre. We'll let you know when the meeting is rescheduled.

No comment.

Why do you have to be a member to attend an LVCA information meeting especially when the issue has such an impact on the community? We are all 'members' of the community.

"Will be introduced" has changed to "may be introduced."

Moving forward.

These meetings are in addition to the public meetings that are required. The hosts can decide who is invited.

If you wish to attend, become a member. If you don't wish to become a member then go to one of the public meetings instead.

If you don't like the way the LVCA is being run, then become a member, let them know your concerns, and if they are not responsive then support other candidates for the executive or run for the executive yourself.

Good suggestion. Do you know where she lived? If there is a road renaming occuring in her home neighborhood that might be possible.

Personally, I prefer "Baker Dr." or "Marilyn Rd" to the mouthful Marilyn Baker Way. I realize some of the historical/personal connection is lost, but over time it needs to become the residents street.

“We have done everything in accordance with City rezoning policies and have essentially arrived at where we started two years ago.”

Well, that's probably quite right.
Problem isn't the developers, the problem is that the council and planners haven't 'done everything in accordance with what the present residents want'.

That's the problem.

We DONT want this kind of density, we DONT want highrises and that is clearly why we moved to North Vancouver and not Metrotown.
