Johnston Road Streetscape Revitalization

The City of White Rock Council has identified the development of the Town Centre as a strategic priority. The revitalization of the Johnston Road streetscape is an opportunity to improve the vibrancy and functionality of Johnston Road as the commercial heart of the Town Centre.

Building on past Johnston Road studies and consultations, the City is re-engaging the community to develop a collaborative Concept Development Plan for Johnston Road in 2016. The City has hired Studio Parsons and ETA Landscape Architecture to assist with this collaborative streetscape design process.

The City of White Rock is looking for input from community members, business owners and property owners regarding improvements needed to Johnston Road between North Bluff Road and Roper Avenue. Your input will help drive enhancements to the streetscape on Johnston Road.
