In March 2019, we launched a planning process to create a comprehensive community plan for the area within Vine Street to Clark Drive and 1st Avenue to 16th Avenue.

    As we wrap up the engagement period for the Refined Directions, we wanted to take some time to thank you all for participating in the most recent phase of public consultation.


    Over the last four weeks, we had a combination of in-person and online events that gained a lot of interest. We had more than 7,200 visitors to our ShapeYourCity website to review materials, take the survey, and learn how to get involved. We received over 2000 survey responses and over 1,300 views on our “Refined Directions virtual presentation” on Youtube. Lastly, our three in-person open house sessions marked the first time we gathered in person to talk and learn about the future of our communities since before the pandemic.


    In mid-January, we will be publishing our engagement summary report which will provide an overview of “what we heard” during this phase. All of the feedback shared will be used to inform the “draft plan” which we will bring out for consultation in early March 2022.


    Thank you once again for your time and input. We look forward to seeing you again in 2022.

    Kind regards,

    The Broadway Planning Team
