Vancouver is proposing a 10-year plan that focuses on building tens of thousands of rental apartments, suppressing speculation and matching the units built to income levels, an effort to address anger over a housing crisis in the city.
"There's some big moves here that haven't been done before," said Gil Kelley, the city's general manager of planning. "We are setting housing-production goals by income level."
Senior city officials will know the updated cost of the Scarborough subway in 2018.
Exactly when that estimate will be ready is still unclear. But the Star has confirmed the public won’t be told until the first quarter of 2019, when a staff report to council is expected — well after the next municipal election.

But with years of work to go, officials say commuters will likely be better off using public transit instead of the temporary ramps that will stitch together the Turcot until it is completed in 2020.
The expectation is that traffic delays in the new few weeks will be the worst seen as detours are added in this key phase of construction.
A new neighbourhood plan for Saint John's south end, uptown, and Waterloo Village will touch on issues such as noise, the Coast Guard site, and heritage bylaws.
