How can I find out more about the proposal?
Canderel and Amica are holding a Public Meeting on April 21st (see details) to introduce the project and discuss with the community before making their formal submission/application. Let’s hear what they have to say and be focused and constructive in our approach to discussions and sharing of feedback. At the Public Meeting, there will be a presentation, followed by an opportunity to ask questions of the developer(s).
What happens next?
Canderel has indicated that they will submit their formal application to the City in early May 2016. Once it is submitted, the City planning department will review it for completeness. Once it is deemed complete, the detailed application documents will be made available on the City’s DevApps site (TBA). A link to the docs will be posted on this site. The City will invite comments during a 28 day official comment period following the posting of the detailed documents to the DevApps site.
The GCA invites the community to get informed and have your voice heard as part of a respectful, constructive, and effective discussion of the proposal!
The GCA Planning Committee will undertake a careful review of benefits of the project to the community, as well as impacts to the Traditional Mainstreet and neighbours in direct proximity to the development.
