What the heck's a CDP? Forum Thursday.Fri Jan 13, 2012 Miss Vicky
The fine folks of the Wellington Village Community Association will be holding a public form on the Wellington West Community Design Plan (or CDP for short) this coming Thursday, January 19.
The forum takes place at St George's Church on Picadilly Ave, between 7 and 9pm. The Forum will explain what the recently-passed plan might mean as the neighbourhood grows and develops. The plan, which involved a couple of years of study and consultation, is supposed to guide development decisions on things like height, density, public space, zoning and more for the next twenty years. But what does that actually mean in practice? Is it enforcable? What role does the community play?
It should be an interesting discussion - and an important one given the various developments we anticipate over the next several years. Katherine Hobbs will be speaking, as will our MPP, who has been working on provincial legislation to make the Ontario Municipal Board more friendly to communities.
The CDP includes the Wellington West Mainstreet through Hintonburg and Wellington Village, as well as the Parkdale Market District. Anyone who lives, works or hangs in the area might benefit from this discussion.
See you there?
