To all local residents who attended various meetings during the Setting Sail Secondary Plan [PDF] process, let's have a quick recap.
Remember when we all heard that the overwhelming response from residents was to have a mixed-use streetscape developed along Barton St in the Ferguson Ave area?
Remember how the residents favoured streetfront retail with apartments above and no drive-thrus/big box?
Remember all the noises about "best practices" in terms of design and local neighbourhoods?
Remember the talk about rebuilding this stretch of Barton and helping to rejuvenate this historic neighbourhood in the West Harbour district?
Well, here is the fruit of your labour and all of your "valuable input" into this project.
