IMAGINE THE FUTURE OF AREA D

How can we make Area D a better place to live, work and play?

Area D, often referred to as 'the Village', is home to a diversity of people and places.

It is a community that features a range of multi-family housing, shops, restaurants, transportation options, and parks and green space.

We are developing a neighbourhood plan to ensure that any future growth in Area D meets the needs of the community and we need your help!

What is a Neighbourhood Plan?

A Neighbourhood Plan is a strategic plan that will be used by the UEL Administration to make decisions about Area D land use, infrastructure investment and community priorities. The Plan will outline a community vision for the future, with supporting goals and objectives, and a policy framework to guide future growth and development.

PROJECT TIMING

Over the next year, we will be asking you to weigh in on the future of Area D. Your ideas, along with technical and staff input, will shape the Area D Neighbourhood Plan.

In Phase 1, we completed a lot of background work: we explored the currrent state of Area D; reviewed background documents, community facts and trends; hosted meetings and interviews; visited various sites in the neighbourhood; and identified key issues and priorities.

We are now in Phase 2.

  • In Phase 2A, we hosted four public events to involve you in drafting a community vision, goals and directions for the Plan.
  • Now in Phase 2B, we will host a public design event and four public design review events to dive deeper into specific topics and discuss key policy and design options.
  • In Phase 3, we will compile all of the input received to develop a draft Area D Neighbourhood Plan which will be brought back to the community for review and refinement before a final plan is presented to the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing for approval.

    GET INVOLVED

    Interested in the future of Area D? Join us at two public events to shape key policies and design options for the future of Area D.

    We're hosting a Public Ideas Jam, where you can shape design options for the neighbourhood, and for public Design Review events, where you can provide feedback on the policy and design options you helped create for the Plan, covering topics such as land use, housing, neighbourhood design, parks and green space, transportation, and sustainability.

    We look forward to seeing you there!

    LEARN MORE

    In Phase 2A, we asked the community about what you like and what could be improved about the neighbourhood, what your priorities are for the future and big ideas for topics like housing, transportation, parks and green space, heritage, the local economy, infrastructure and sustainability. Your thoughts and ideas can be found in the Phase 2A Engagement Summary Report.

    The Area D Context Map shows recent and proposed development surrounding the Area D study area.

    For additional information on key topics, check out the following references and backgrounders. These topics will be explored throughout the process.
