On Monday, July 11th, 2011, Port Metro Vancouver (PMV) submitted an alternative proposal to the City of North Vancouver (CNV) Council in place of the previously-rejected portion of the proposed Low Level Road Improvement Project (LLRIP). Council rejected the re-alignment and raising of the western end of the Low Level Road.
The Port submitted this alternative proposal just days before the Council summer recess. This only allowed 4 to 5 days for City staff and residents to prepare for the Council meeting to consider this proposal.
Based on PMV’s alternative proposal, the Deputy City Engineer prepared a motion to be put before Council. This motion was brought before Council on Monday, July 18th, 2011. City Council approved the motion to move forward with this phase of the project but it was not approved unanimously.
