Second open house for Burnaby Mountain Transit Hub on Wednesday

SFU staff, students, residents of UniverCity and other interested parties: come to an open house on Wednesday to see the developing plans for the Burnaby Mountain Transit Hub!

Wednesday, February 18
9:00am – 4:00pm
ASSC 1 Atrium Space – AQ NE (adjacent to Renaissance Coffee)
6:30pm – 8:30pm
Cornerstone Building, 8982 University High Street

This is the second open house to be held regarding this transit exchange, following up on an initial consultation held in November 2008.

At this open house, you’ll see background information and a conceptual design for the Burnaby Mountain Transit Hub and surrounding area, based on the concept that resulted from the November 2008 Community Open House. Feel free to attend and share your comments and ideas!

TransLink, SFU and the SFU Community Trust are engaged in this study to consider the redevelopment of the exchange. With the introduction of the Vancity U-Pass in 2002 and the SFU Community Pass in 2006, transit use has increased significantly and the current exchange at the top of Burnaby Mountain needs to be expanded. And with projects like UniverCity and the SFU Town Centre redevelopment, the SFU area has seen increased growth and more diverse land use.

We’re hoping to create an exceptional urban environment that supports the community’s commitment to sustainable planning, and encourages commuters to choose transit as the preferred mode of travel. We want the hub to be attractive, safe and functional, respecting the campus’ inherent character as well as the urban context of the area, and meeting the needs of the people now and in the future.

    I strongly oppose to the Gondola building project for the following reasons: As a resident in the area, the noises and pollution resulting from the construction and erection of the Gondola will be very disruptive to our well being, life style, privacy and to the surrounding nature. The SFU area is situated and surrounded by the wonders of nature. The forest in the forest grove area is a habitat to many wild animals, insects, trees and flowers. It is one of the reason why my family and I chose to live in this area. The construction of the Gondola will bring about destructive impact to this area. I understand the convenience it might bring to many SFU students, staff and those who are traveling up the hill. However your commune only happens during certain hours of the day, yet the noise pollution generated by the Gondola will affect the local residents 21 hours a day with gondola cabins passing as frequently as every 3-6 minutes. Also please be mindful of the many children who are living in the area. The children who attend Forest Grove Elementary will be walking and playing directly underneath part of the cable line. Imagine the noises generated by the moving cabins during their school hours. Not to mention the potential danger of accidents that can happen as a result of strong wind or the long over due earthquake. I myself do not wish to see any adult or children get stuck by objects falling from the Gondola cabins or by the Gondola cabin itself. I urge translink to seriously reconsider proceeding with this project.
