Five Corners Improvement Project

Five Corners

Background

Five Corners is a symbolic location in the City of White Rock and is where Johnston Road, Buena Vista Avenue and Pacific Avenue all converge. Located within the City's Lower Town Centre, Five Corners is a vital destination hub for shopping, dining, sightseeing, and gathering for festivals and events, drawing visitors from across the community and the lower mainland.

The Five Corners Improvement Project is identified as a priority in the City's Integrated Transportation & Infrastructure Master Plan (ITIMP) and will provide an opportunity to revitalize the vibrancy and functionality of Five Corners as the social, cultural, and commercial heart of the community by:

  • Addressing transportation concerns
  • Improving pedestrian safety
  • Creating more public space
  • Upgrading walking and cycling paths
  • Enhancing connectivity to the beach


Public Engagement

A conceptual design (see renderings below) has been created and staff are seeking input from the public on key design components, including:

  • Expansion of urban and public space for social gatherings and events (made possible by a road closure)
  • Activate transportation infrastructure (sidewalks, cycling facilities)
  • Traffic safety improvements
  • Connectivity to Stager Park from Johnston Road with a formal entrance
  • Drinking fountain
  • Street furniture (benches, bike parking)
  • Signage and wayfinding
  • Public washroom
  • Public art
  • Landscaping

The proposed improvements will address transportation concerns and improve pedestrian safety by simplifying the intersection while accommodating traffic flow on Pacific Avenue and separating pedestrians/cyclists from vehicle traffic.

The feedback received will help improve the City's understanding of the community's needs and desires and will help us deliver the best outcome for all residents and business owners. Community engagement will be integrated throughout the full project lifecycle and is key to delivering a successful project.

Join us at the listed upcoming events and opportunities to be involved and provide input. Dates are listed in the column on the right-hand side of the project page.
