Grant Street Project; Neighbours Are Concerned (Meeting Feb 5th)

What to do When a Proposed Project Raises Local Concern? 

In a neighbourhood of 1 1/2 to 2 storey houses, a group of neighbours find themselves being presented with a proposed 6 storey building immediately adjacent, as their newest neighbour, which has raised grave concerns. 

The primary reservation(s)  generally fall into the category of ‘lack of fit’.  There is no dispute that increased density in the Grandview Woodland community is necessary and inevitable (as with all downtown adjacent neighbourhoods) and could in fact add to the quality of our community, it is believed this goal can  be achieved without sacrificing the very qualities which define Grandview Woodland.

Come to hear  the analysis and review conducted  by local residents and their comprehensive and thoughtful submissions to City Planners.
