WHAT WE HEARD
37 feedback forms were completed and 77 comments were captures on an interactive Ideas Board. A number of themes emerged from the input received and a further breakdown of feedback by question is noted in Appendix A:
- Almost all respondents indicated they felt the vision fits within the neighbourhood. 27 indicated yes, and 3 indicated somewhat. There were no responses that indicated it did not.
- Most comments were supportive of specific amenities and improvements proposed, including restaurant/pub, coffee, parks, grocery store, transit, and elementary school in particular.
- Several respondents offered appreciation of the greater detail provided.
- There were a number of questions about the specific details associated with the planned amenities, including: which grocery store brand will it be, what types of equipment will be included in the parks, (i.e. swings), and building heights.
- There was curiosity expressed about how the pit and soil piles are addressed as part of the redevelopment and what the first phase of development will look like.
- Two respondents indicated an interest in housing for seniors, and one mentioned disappointment about the neighbourhood house not being included.
- Several existing residents expressed appreciation for the new plan for the pop up café concept presented as it responded to the previously expressed frustration about a lack of local amenities.
All input will now be considered in detail and will inform further development of the application, and future public engagement opportunities. The next open house is planned for the fall of 2019.
