Vancouver wants to know what you think about public spaces in the downtown core.

Last week, the city launched the Places for People Downtown program with the aim of crafting a long term strategy to create vibrant, exceptional and memorable public spaces downtown.

The city currently doesn't have a comprehensive strategy to guide the planning and delivery of public spaces across the city.

The first stage of the program includes various forms of public consultation, which started with the Wednesday launch, which included a number of information boards set up on Robson Street in front of the art gallery. The display gave members of the public a chance to share ideas for what they would like to see in the city.

The city will eventually look at expanding the program into other areas of the city, but it's starting with the downtown core. The program will focus on public spaces such as streets, plazas, laneways, public open areas and privately owned public spaces that are part of retail or office buildings.

The program will take 18 months with the goal of presenting a draft stategy to the city next summer.

Public consultation will take several forms, including pop up tents, walking tours, workshops and questionaires.
