Phase 1: Planning principles
Phase 1 took place between June and August 2021, and introduced the community to the project site, opportunities and constraints, and the guiding principles that will provide a framework for identifying and evaluating development concepts through the subsequent phases.
Community and Stakeholder input in Phase 1 was used to review and refine the guiding principles to ensure that the design concepts developed during Phase 2 continue to be informed by, and reflect, the themes, principles and policies that were identified as being important to the community.
The guiding principles were endorsed by Council on August 17, 2021 and create an evaluation framework for staff and Council to evaluate design proposals, and ensure that policy objectives are implemented through the redevelopment of the site. View the August 17, 2021 Report to Council.
Each guiding principle includes framing questions and key topics that act as a framework for design considerations, and help ensure that as concepts are developed they continue to be informed by, and reflect, the themes, principles and policies that were identified during Phase 1 as being important to the community.
