Here is this week’s wrap-up of what’s happening at City Hall:
Mobi is here!
Vancouver’s new bike share, Mobi, launched this week for Founding Members with 23 stations and 250+ bikes available for use 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For the next few weeks the bikes will be available exclusively for those with Founding memberships, which are on sale until July 31. More information on short term use is coming soon, so stay tuned!
By the end of summer there will be 1,500 bicycles and 150 centrally located stations so you can hop on and ride to a meeting, dinner, the beach, or simply to check out a new part of town. Find more details and get your Mobi membership at www.mobibikes.ca.
New rental homes in Oakridge for seniors and families
The City has approved a social housing project in Oakridge that will create 46 new affordable rental homes for seniors and families. The social housing will be owned by the Oakridge Lutheran Church and Catalyst Community Development Society and is an innovative approach to delivering affordable social housing. We’re continuing to do everything we can at City Hall to support creative projects like this one, providing high quality, accessible, and affordable housing for seniors and families.

Today, Mayor Robertson is honoured to unveil the new Lilian To Way monikers and plaque in Shanghai Alley in memory of Lilian To, a trailblazer for immigrant rights and CEO of the immigrant services organization S.U.C.C.E.S.S.for almost three decades. Vancouver has a longstanding commitment to welcoming immigrants and helping them start new lives here in our city, and Lilian will be remembered for her significant contribution to making Vancouver a more inclusive city.
