The Holyrood Development Committee is looking forward to seeing a new proposal that gives consideration to the feedback shared during a joint workshop held April 7, 2018. This feedback included the following:

Community Contribution

  • Desire for affordable and family-oriented housing
  • Creation of a transit plaza (which will help improve pedestrian safety)
  • Support for the bench program

Transportation

  • Create a predictable traffic flow pattern that minimizes short-cutting through neighbourhood, especially on 93 Ave.
  • Increase pedestrian visibility at parkade access points through changes to design

Open Space

  • Introduce pathways for pedestrians and cyclists
  • Improve access to LRT at both ends of platform

Built Form

  • Honour angular plane guidelines (which will see reduced heights but potential for increased site coverage)
  • Build engaging street environment
