To propose changes, property owners must submit a pre-application conference form and fees to the city by April 30. Informal pre-application conferences will be held with applicants in May and early June. Following the conferences, formal applications for comprehensive plan changes will then be accepted through June 15. Proposed changes will be reviewed by the Vancouver Planning Commission and City Council during public hearings in the fall.

The city’s comprehensive plan provides the overall long-term vision and policy direction for managing the built and natural environment in Vancouver. It includes written text and policies, as well individual map designations applying to specific properties that indicate the general types of uses allowed, from industrial and commercial developments to residential developments with varying densities.
