Mayor Mary-Ann Booth is inviting citizens to ‘Coffee with the Mayor’, a get-together where you can ask questions, share your feedback and discuss community issues.

Booth also informed that she attended UBCM and met provincial representatives to discuss West Vancouver issues. She discussed traffic priorities on the North Shore, including congestion and safety improvements to the Upper Levels Highway and public transit connections to Squamish and Whistler. She also talked about discussing photo radar cameras in West Van and allowing North Shore Rescue to conduct helicopter searches using night vision googles.
Banning single-use plastics, wildfire protection, Brissenden Park, funding for a track and sports field and the library, new arts centre, and the ability to share in revenues from Speculation and Vacancy tax were some other community issues she said she discussed with the province.
