|At this stage of the planning process, the Ratepayer’s Association and Panel have heard, from the community, significant reservations around areas of the master plan that have not been addressed, including:|
The capacity of current and future infrastructure (e.g., roads, parking, transit, sewers) to support this development and the existing stable community
Parkland Experience and design. including incorporating an indigenous village and cultural centre as part of the reconciliation process and developing the idea of a distinct and unique destination as a key goal
The amenities (e.g., community programming and centres, senior facilities, affordable housing) that the City plans to provide as a result of approving this development
The diversity and percentage of floor area allocated to various mixed uses (e.g., commercial, institutional, residential, retail, recreational, employment centres) to ensure that the development is a complete neighbourhood – where residents can live, work and play without venturing outside the development for every day necessities – rather than an isolated bedroom community
