Pemberton Heights Halloween Street Safety – Traffic Management Plan

In response to neighbourhood concerns, there will be “local-traffic only” restrictions on 7 Pemberton Heights intersections on Halloween night to ensure safety and limit excessive vehicle traffic.

Pemberton Heights residents raised many concerns with the District of North Vancouver last year about traffic safety and a huge influx of out-of-neighbourhood traffic creating a dangerous situation on Halloween night.

To help manage traffic, the district has offered to place barriers in 7 key locations restricting access to local traffic on high traffic/problematic side streets in Pemberton Heights. Traffic on main routes like West Keith and West 22nd will not be restricted. They will also place a large electronic message board on West Keith Rd near Mackay Ave to alert drivers about the restrictions.

NOTE: Based on neighbourhood feedback the local traffic only restrictions have been updated to cover a wider area.

Barriers will be in place in 7 locations after 5:00/5:30 PM on October 31, 2023 and will be removed at the end of the evening.

Halloween Night Traffic Restrictions

Barriers will be placed at:

  • W 22nd Street at Cortell
  • W 22nd Street at Lloyd Ave
  • W 22nd Street @ Bridgman Ave
  • W 22nd Street @Philip Ave
  • W Keith Rd @ Pemberton Ave / Cortell Street
  • W Keith Rd @ Bridgman Ave
  • W Keith Rd @ Philip Ave

The district has asked the neighbourhood to assist with setting up and taking down the barriers. Barriers will not be manned, but if you are able to help with checking on them during the evening, please reach out to us or to your block watch captain!

COVID-19: The Corner Stone & Dinner Delivery Service in Pemberton Heights

Hi Neighbours,

On behalf of the entire Pemberton Heights Community Association I want to write to you during this unique time in our lives. As we adapt and cope with the COVID-19 pandemic, we must make sure our immediate family is safe – first and foremost. Then we need to be mindful of our friends and neighbours around us – especially our elders. Please reach out to your immediate neighbours – especially our older neighbours and check in on them. Do so from a distance while being mindful of the necessary protocols for health and safety. Its at times like these when communities such as ours need to band together and ‘weather the storm’. For example, I have an elderly couple a few doors down. Earlier today, I knocked on their door, stepped off the porch and when they came to the door, simply asked if they were okay and if they needed any help with securing groceries or other supplies. We had a brief chat about what’s happening and I wished them well after leaving them with my cell #. I was glad to hear that one of my other neighbours already beat me to the punch and made the same offer. That’s Pemberton Heights for you! Its always a good idea to exchange phone numbers with the offer to help each other when and where you can. Simple stuff. Simple, but important.

I know this is a scary time for most of us. Unprecedented. I for one, am so grateful that I have the true benefit of weathering this storm here in Pemberton Heights. Its with this realization in mind that I want to highlight another important point to be mindful of during this crisis. Governments are beginning to restrict crowds from forming. So that means restricted usage of our beloved Corner Stone Bistro. We have been in touch with Tracey since this crisis hit and they are attempting to make some adjustments to weather the storm also. Here’s some very simple ways you can help minimize the impact on our ONLY retail outlet in Pemberton Heights.

Continue to use their services and offerings.

Below is an email from Tracey – highlighting what they have to offer us during these difficult times. I encourage you to give the Cornerstone a call, order a meal for pick up or delivery. Their phone number is below.

Thanks for your time. I for one look forward to this global event coming to a swift conclusion. In the meantime, be safe, follow the recommendations of our health officials and remember to look out for each other. We live in a wonderful neighbourhood and I know most of you are already doing your part. Thank you for your kindness.


Colin Metcalfe
President, Pemberton Heights Community Assoc.

Update & Delivery Offerings from the Corner Stone Bistro

To our valued customers,

With the growing concerns about the Corona Virus, it is our number one priority to keep our customers and employees safe. So in addition to taking added precautions, including increased cleaning with sanitizers, we are trying to adapt our business to meet the needs of our customers. Many families had to cancel their vacation plans and are now having a stay-cation and wanting to stay close to home. We have decided to implement a ‘dinner delivery’ program. Click here to view a dinner menu that will be available for pick up or delivery (in Pemberton Heights) every day from 4-7 pm.

As well, I have listed the many soups and meals that are available in our ‘Frozen to Go’ section. And of course, our many sandwiches, salads, baked goods, basic groceries and confectionery items will continue to be available. All you need to do is call, 604-990-3602, and place an order!
