Did you know that there are plans to redevelop the 30 acres of land around Bonnie Doon Mall? Morguard, a real estate company, is planning a major “mixed-use transit oriented development” in this location. The project will be phased in over the next 30 years.
They are reaching out to all communities in the area. Morguard is inviting you to share your vision for the land. You can share your ideas at the Inspiration Centre (just outside of the North entrance to Safeway. The first phase of public engagement, can be done in person at the Inspiration Centre, by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by phone (780-900-8729). For the Internet aficionados, there is also an online survey. For more information visit their website at: http://connectbonniedoon.com.
There are five guiding principles for the redevelopment, which aims to create a community that will draw people from around Edmonton. The principles are: Sustainable Development, Healthy Streets, Distinct and Authentic Design, Inclusive Public Spaces and Evolve Bonnie Doon. Examples of what these principles mean can be found in the Inspiration Centre.
Please share your ideas. Everything from urban design, affordable housing, senior housing, amenities, green space and more is open for discussion. Together we can build a vision for this very important community hub.
