Grandview Zoning — Important Dates

November 18, 2016

For many people, the idea of spending time talking about zoning comes close to waterboarding as an attractive activity. However, in our modern world, zoning is a key parameter for how our neighbourhoods look and feel and work, and that directly has an effect on how we feel.┬áThe Grandview Community Plan has suggested a number of significant changes to zonings throughout Grandview. Most of these changes allow/impose “new housing choices” in the form of higher density options.

Anyone who has followed this blog for a while will probably understand my take on the Plan. But you will soon have a chance to see for yourself what this all means.  City Planners are holding two open house events later this month specifically to present what changes to zoning might mean.

  • Saturday Nov 26, 1:00pm to 4:00pm, WISE Hall, 1882 Adanac
  • Wednesday Nov 30, 5:00pm to 8:00pm at Croatian Cultural Centre, 3250 Commercial

A useful map of what is approved/proposed can be found on their site.
