community design plan- get involved!
As part of the CDP, the City has retained Urban Strategies Inc. to explore the transformation of the Preston-Carling area around the O-train Carling Station through a Design Charette process. Preston-Carling is one of the three areas within the CDP boundaries, and has seen a very high volume of development interest. This Charette will be used to establish planning and design directions to facilitate the preparation of the CDP and to guide the community improvements and review of development applications. It is generally the intent to have the final CDP presented before Planning Committee by Spring 2013.
Design Charette information:
Who: Anyone interested, no requirement for registration.
When: Tuesday September 25 and Wednesday September 26, 2012.
Where: St. Anthony’s Banquet Hall at 525 St. Anthony Street.
Daily format: 9:00 am to 4:00 pm daily: Continuous Design Sessions focused on various themes
6:30 pm to 8:30 pm: Community Drop-in for all to see the emerging directions for the area and share comments
A communication strategy has been developed to promote the Design Charette. The campaign will be launched in the first week of September to invite residents, business owners, and other stakeholders to attend and participate.
