About Ian

Ian Robertson was first elected to the Vancouver Park Board in 2005, and served as Chair in 2007 and Vice Chair in 2006 and 2008. Ian has advocated strongly for improved sports facilities with particular emphasis on increasing the number of artificial turf fields in Vancouver. He led motions to build two new artificial turf fields at Trillium Park, a new artificial turf field at Van Tech High School and new artificial turf at Andy Livingstone Park.

While serving as Chair, he provided leadership and direction in developing the restoration plan for Stanley Park after the 2006 wind storm.

Ian has been a strong advocate for increasing the pace of redeveloping Vancouver’s aging community centre infrastructure, and is working hard to ensure that several centres that deserve redevelopment are included in future Capital Plans.
