The Hillside neighbourhood has seen plenty of change over the years and that’s why they’re inviting residents to the second Hillside Area Redevelopment Plan workshop tonight.
“It’ll just be kind of an informal workshop, so you can show up at any point. There’s not really going to be one set presentation. It’ll be just a series of stations where you can go to whatever issue you’re interested in, and talk to somebody about it and provide your feedback,” explained Reed Des Roches, Planner for the City of Grande Prairie.
“There will be one for future land uses, one for design standards. One for the city-owned parcel and parking issues. Another for ideas that we received from students at the Hillside Community School for 96 Street and Roy Peterson Park. And another for street planting and park improvement.”
The first workshop was held in April, and Des Roches went on to say there seems to be a few specific topics that peak folks interest.
“Residents seem mainly concerned with future land uses, and where intensification might happen. People seem very supportive off the concept of adding hospital parking on the city-owned parcel on the southwestern corner.”
It goes from 6:30-9 p.m. at the Hillside Community School Gym.
