ONGOING
ENGAGEMENT

Public engagement is a key part of the planning process, which helps our team understand community values, concerns and aspirations for the future of the site. This community input is considered along with existing property conditions and constraints, developer aspirations and applicable planning policies to inform the development for the site.

PAST VIDEOS

We've developed a series of videos with members of the project team speaking to different aspects of the proposal. To date, we have done three videos. The first one features Pete Edgar of EDGAR (the landowner), and Mark Ostry of Acton Ostry Architects (project architect) providing an introduction to the site and the proposal. The second video features Chris Macmillan of Sartori Environmental, the project biologist, providing information related to the Environmental Overview Assessment completed for the site. The third video features the sustainability consultant, Kevin Welsh from Integral Group and the landscape architect, Derek Lee from PWL Partnership speaking to the sustainability features and the parks planning.

*Please note that as the project is constantly evolving due to feedback from staff, the community and Council, some of the information in the videos may be out of date.

Introduction Video

In our first video, Peter Edgar, president of EDGAR and Mark Ostry of Acton Ostry Architects introduce and provide an overview of the Woodland Park proposal.

 

We asked the community "What do you want to learn more about in upcoming videos?" and provided the following options: affordable housing, retail and commercial opportunities, community facilities, alternative transportation, environment and sustainability features, and parks and open space. 

Thanks to everyone that participated! Environment and sustainability features, affordable housing and alternative transportation tied for the top 3 choices.
