Marpole Matters - Home

January 2015: Marpole Matters (MM) was founded by Janet Fraser and Don Barthel in January 2012. MM was active to November 2014, reporting on development matters concerning the Marpole neighbourhood of Vancouver in British Columbia, Canada. Throughout the Marpole planning process and the Cambie Corridor planning process, Marpole Matters reported back to the community on our meetings with developers and city planners, after city-sponsored open houses, and city council meetings concerning Marpole. As the Marpole Plan is now in place and Janet's and Don's interests and commitments are evolving, MM will become dormant but the existing blog content will continue to be available, as well as the archived Twitter feed.

We thank everyone who offered their time, expertise or support during our time with Marpole Matters. We love living in Marpole and we hope that our long-standing community values will remain strong as our neighbourhood evolves.
