The city of Vancouver will present a draft of its capital spending plan to city council today.

The $1.8 billion plan is for the next four years.

The draft proposes major investments in affordable housing, childcare and transportation.

Two-thirds of the proposed spending would invest in renewing existing city infrastructure, such as a fire hall in South Vancouver.

The city says the spending plan is based on information from a survey conducted in the spring.

It plans to hold four open houses and launch an online questionnaire on the proposed plan throughout this month.

The final plan will then be presented to city council in September ahead of the November civic election.
