The annual Great Neighbourhood Garage Sale is back! Two days of bargain hunting May 27 & 28, 9:30AM – noon (although you’re welcome to start earlier and end later!) – and a garage is not necessary to participate!
The team at LynnValleyLife is putting together the ultimate map for bargain hunters. If you are thinking spring garage sale – this is the weekend to do it! LynnValleyLife will gather participant addresses and distribute the map on social media and by email. They will even have some signs you can print off to direct buyers to your block.
No garages need – there’s a parking lot sale
Not everyone has a garage, so LynnValleyLife has partnered with St. Clements Anglican Church (3400 Institute Road) to offer their parking lot for the morning of Saturday, May 28th – to bring a table or use your trunk to sell your items. To sign up for a parking lot spot at the church, please email email@example.com To register your address, visit the SIGN UP form.
Artists and Makers are welcome!
Increased neighbourhood traffic might also be an opportunity for crafters or makers to show their wares. If you want to open your driveway or garage to show your handiwork – you too can sign up with your ‘garage’ address or for a parking lot spot. You will be added to the map!
By volunteering to adopt a street or trail and regularly collecting litter you improve the neighbourhood for everyone. It can be a family affair, including kids in the process, and you’ll get a bit of exercise as well. It’s easy to do, and you are sure to meet a few appreciative neighbours while you are out doing the job.
The District supplies trash grabbers, hi-vis vests, and some garbage bags to get you started. The minimum commitment is only once a month, but you can do it more often.
This is a great opportunity for community associations, local businesses, schools, sports teams, individuals, and families to make a difference in our community. You can even challenge and inspire other groups or neighbours to see who can keep the cleanest street.
When you adopt a street, you can:
build a stronger sense of community in your neighbourhood
get to know your neighbours
improve your street
reduce litter, vandalism, and crime in your area
Do we have any volunteers willing for LVCA to adopt a street? Let us know! We’ll for a ‘posse’ and head out!
A PUBLIC HEARING will be held on February 7th in a hybrid format with a combination of in-person at the Council Chamber and electronic participation by some or all members of council, staff and the public.

In the coming weeks, work will beginning to replace the sewer on Mountain Hwy between approximately East 24th and East 18th Street.
The District of North Vancouver has identified that the sanitary trunk sewer along Mountain Hwy is nearing its end of useful life and is due for replacement. The new trunk sewer will be installed using micro-tunneling methods meant to be less disruptive, less expensive and more environmentally friendly compared to traditional methods.
We’ve attached a PDF of the letter and map of the area to be worked on from the District, outlining the ‘what’, ‘why’ and ‘how’ but the ‘when’ (duration) will depend. Apparently it will take one year to complete. They expect to keep one lane of traffic open in each direction for the duration.
Note that vehicle access to and from East 20th Street via Mountain Hwy will be closed.
Updates can be found at : www.dnv.org/lynn-valley-sewer/ and if you have any questions or concerns about this project, you can contact the project team directly by email at: LynnValleySewer@dnv.org or by phone (604) 990-2450.
It’s important that you have as much information as possible when it comes time to vote.
We’ve posted the links to three recordings of ACMs that recently took place. Take a moment, grab a cup of coffee and maybe the neighbours and watch the videos. Your vote is your voice so make it heard on October 15th.
These recordings are not professionally produced – they were taken by volunteers and members of each of the communities so please keep that in mind when viewing.
*we apologize to incumbent, Trey Bell that during the the transition to the second part of the LVCA ACM recording, the opening statement was not recorded.
Please join us for TWO Annual General Meetings on Thursday November 4th at 7pm via Zoom.
