“...in the earliest report on approaches to development …[they] envisioned Granville Island as an “urban opportunity... to address the de-humanization, corporatization, institutionalized specialization and control which have characterized modern urban development...erasing... opportunities for personal fulfillment [and] frustrating... fundamentally healthy needs for creativity.” The report then pointed to the characteristics of an “Urban Opportunity Place... including unspecialized settings, unfinished settings, relaxed institutional controls, and the encouragement of self-policing that frees up self-expression.”
