The plan for Latoria South has been shaped by many years of direct community consultation and City land use policy, including the City Official Community Plan.
The early engagement of Colwood residents and neighbours has been essential to establishing awareness and understanding of what is proposed for the Commons and Quarry neighbourhoods of Royal Bay. Engagement, throughout the development of the rezoning application, helped Gablecraft respond to the input received and to prepare an application that is informed by Colwood residents and immediate neighbours to the site.
Four large open house events were hosted in the Royal Bay community over the past 18 months. Each event was promoted widely to Colwood residents, via advertising, and social media, as well as direct mail to nearly 2,000 households each time.
