Hope you had a great summer!
I wanted to update you on the Dalhousie Co-op project.
We were in the Co-op store periodically over the summer with a couple of design boards for people to look at. We’ve found this to be helpful with other projects to socialize the idea with area residents in advance of public meetings. The feedback we had in store was quite positive and residents had lots of great questions we were able to address. We’ve also scheduled two open house meetings for late October (see attachment). We’d love to see you and the other board members out at both or either of the dates. They are informal drop in-style, and we will have architects, consultants and possibly a representative from city planning on hand for people to ask questions and have discussions with. There will be an opportunity for residents to also fill out comment cards (and we also have an app) for about their thoughts on the project. We recently had two such meetings in regards to our Brentwood Co-op redevelopment plans and the style of the open house events was well received. We will be happy to share the feedback we receive from the Dalhousie events with the Community Association Board the week following the open houses.
If circulating the dates and times about the public open house meetings is something the community association can do, that would be great. A website has also been set up. Right now the information on there about the project is limited, but after the first public meeting more details will be added.
If the Dalhousie Community Association would like to talk prior to the Open House events or if you have any questions, please let me know. Thank you!
