On Saturday, August 9th from 1pm to 5pm, residents from all across the city will gather at four regional forums to discuss their values and priorities.

Later this month, students and professionals will draft proposals based on the direction that residents give at the August forums. These proposals will be presented to residents at the second round of forums on September 13th.

Residents who miss the August forums will have an opportunity to discuss their values and priorities at the September forums, following which new proposals will be drafted and existing proposals will be revised in preparation for the final round of forums on October 11th, where residents will vote on the proposals. The result will be The People’s Platform, which the candidates in the municipal election will be asked to support.

At the Public Meeting last night regarding James St Baptist Ward 2 Councillor Farr said: “I am pleased to see continued forward movement. The development proposal would bring considerable density, but in an central area of our core where I am certain local business along James south will benefit. Of course, parking issues still need some sorting out and on behalf of Duranders, I will be watching carefully how this aspect of the development is intended to be addressed.”
