Geoff Meggs, an award-winning journalist and communications specialist, was elected with Gregor Robertson's Vision team in 2008 and quickly became the point person on council for transportation issues.
He was front and centre in the successful effort to win a single U-Pass for all post-secondary students, a strong advocate for the city's separated bike lanes and he continues to push for more investments in buses and rapid transit, especially along the Broadway Corridor.
Geoff also championed a planning review of the Georgia and Dunsmuir Viaducts, unanimously approved by council, to open up new opportunities for public space and parks on the north side of False Creek. In July 2011, council agreed to extend this study to include the critical False Creek Flats that make up the last major area of undeveloped land in the city core.
Geoff is one of Vancouver's directors at Metro Vancouver, where he serves on the water committee, the housing committee and the labour relations bureau. A strong supporter of the arts, Geoff and his family live in False Creek and relax by cycling, hiking and bird-watching.
