        February 20, 1997                        File: 8007-1/2004-1/2006-1

        A Special Council meeting was  held on April 7, 1997 and  April 22,
   1997 for  the purpose of hearing delegations  concerning the recommended
   option for the Downtown  Vancouver Skyline Study.  At  the conclusion of
   the  hearing  of the  delegations on  April 22,  it  was agreed  a final
   decision  would be made at  a Regular Council  meeting, under Unfinished
   Business.  Accordingly, Council had before it the Policy Report from the
   Director of Central Area Planning, dated February 20, 1997.

        Mr. Larry Beasley, Director of  Central Area Planning, provided the
   following additional comments to Council regarding the recommendations:

        -    The  recommendations involve  no  density increases,  although
             densities  may be moved from site to site, taking advantage of
             existing policies, such as heritage preservation;

        -    If  the recommendations are approved, no more than seven sites
             would be eligible for additional building heights, and of this
             seven, only  two could go  as high as 600  feet. The remaining
             five  sites  would  be  eligible for  buildings  with  heights
             between 475-550 feet;

        -    Beyond  the  Queen Elizabeth  view  corridor,  all other  view
             corridors will be respected;

        -    Staff undertook public consultation  and advised Council there
             is a mixed  and passionate opinion  about skylines. Staff  did
             not undertake a scientific survey;

        -    The resolutions  before Council do not  constitute a rezoning.
             No approvals  will be  considered until  rezoning applications
             are made and public hearings are held;

        -    The mountains will remain the predominant image.

                  Streets;
             -    in  no  case will  building  heights  be considered  that
                  intrude into  adopted view  corridors  (except the  Queen

             -    elsewhere,  buildings   significantly  exceeding  current

        C.   THAT buildings  exceeding the  current 450' height  limit will
             not be  considered until  guidelines, zoning  text amendments,

             buildings at this scale are completed.

        D.   THAT the Skyline Study Advisory Committee be thanked for their
             time  and effort and,  further, that they  be consulted during
             the implementation and follow-up work that is outlined in this
             report.

        E.   THAT  the  preparation  of  the  text  amendments  and  design
             guidelines for the implementation of the revised height limits
             be  undertaken as soon as  staff resources become available to
             do  this work,  expected to  be in  1998; and  further that  a
             budget in the amount of $6,000 be approved  in the 1998 budget
             (subject  to the  availability  of funds  and priorities)  for
             public meetings and computer resources to do this work.

             At the Standing Committee of City Services and Budgets meeting
   on  April  24,  1997,  the Committee  heard  representations  from  four
   speakers concerning the Gastown lighting issue.   Several requested time
   to  find  alternate funding  solutions.   Due  to time  constraints, the
   Committee deferred  decision  on  this  item  to  this  Regular  Council
   meeting.  
        Before Council  was an Administrative  Report dated March  12, 1997
   from  the General Manager  of Engineering Services  in consultation with
   the General Manager of Community Services.  

        Also before  Council was a letter from Bob Paddon, BC Hydro to Mary
   Jewel, Gastown Historic Area Planning Committee,  which advised BC Hydro
   is  willing to work with  GHAPC and the City  of Vancouver in finding an
   appropriate lighting solution for  the Gastown area.  BC  Hydro lighting
   specialists will provide the  necessary technical advice to   assist the
   City and GHAPC in determining what steps to take.   

        In  addition, Council  was  in receipt  of  a memorandum  from  the
   General  Manager of Engineering Services dated May 1, 1997 which advised
   that Engineering staff  have met with  BC Hydro officials, and  based on
   this meeting, conclude there is little to be gained by further technical
   study of alternatives available to the incandescent light source.

   MOVED by Cllr. Puil,
        A.   THAT staff proceed with implementing the 1994 Operating Budget
             Management cut of $41,000 per  year by converting the  Gastown

             from the Street Lighting Capital account #20/34/3062/999.

   MOVED by Cllr. Price,
        THAT the foregoing  motion be deferred  for a  six month period  to
   enable the  community to  seek  alternative funding  for the  additional
   $41,000 per year which is required if the current lighting is retained.
