Wards Corner Draft Plan Synopsis

In an effort to help our members, Board Member Karen Mayne put together the below synopsis of the recent Wards Corner Draft Plan put out by the city.  We handed this out at the most recent SACL general meeting on April 8, 2019.

It’s a concise and straightforward presentation of the main takeaways and an excellent way to get up to speed on what to expect in terms of next steps from the city in planning and developing the Wards Corner area.

We hope the synopsis is helpful!  Bring your discussion items to the next general meeting.  We will also remind members and re-post the synopsis closer to the next meeting.

Thinking about the future of Wards Corner is exciting stuff for our area!

Thank you Karen for putting this together!
