May 2016 Open House
The City, along with the applicant, held a public open house to provide information on the proposal and receive feedback at an early stage in the review process.
The open house was held Thursday, May 5, 2016, from 6-8:30pm at the Mill Woods Senior and Multicultural Centre (2nd Floor Mill Woods Library). Members of the public were invited to drop in and view information on the proposal and provide feedback to the City.
City staff, including members from City Planning and Transportation, were available to answer questions on the application and the related Valley Line LRT. The applicant and property owners also attended and answered questions.
Approximately 500 people from across Mill Woods attended this open house. The audience had a chance to view and comment on a series of display boards that outlined the rezoning proposal. View the open house display boards.
