The Spirit Trail Working Group presented its Final Report to Council on Monday, July 27, 2009.
The Upper Lands Report is intended to lead to a framework for future decisions affecting lands between the Upper Levels Highway and Cypress Provincial Park.
A group of citizens working as the Upper Lands Steering Committee gathered and reviewed all the information on the land in the late 1990s. The committee helped produce initial mapping, held public open houses and participated in many meetings leading to the development and refinement of the principles described in this report. The group's last meeting was in 1999 and the report was completed by staff, using the committee's work as a foundation.Upper Lands Report 2001
The District of West Vancouver appointed a Working Group of nine citizen volunteers to consider the future of the Upper Lands. In 2013–2015, the working group assessed environmental data, reviewed existing bylaws and policies, and engaged with stakeholders and the wider community.
The review was intended to help identify which lands should be preserved, which lands could be developed, the kinds of development that would make sense and the types of public uses that should be maintained.

In 2010 the District of West Vancouver initiated a review of its services for youth, delivered through the Parks and Community Services Division, to ensure they are as effective as possible in responding to the needs and desires of our youth and families. In 2011, six focus groups were held, gathering input from community members (youth, parents, partners, and District staff) through dialogue and written surveys.
The findings from these consultations—along with research on best practices and youth services in other communities, as well as past studies and reports conducted in West Vancouver—provide valuable information that will help inform future programs, services and operations in Youth Services in West Vancouver.Consultation Findings Best Practices Comparative Review of other Communities
