A controversial revitalization plan for Grande Prairie’s Hillside area will go before a special meeting of city council.
It will take place Monday afternoon at 1:30 at City Hall.
The plan has drawn opposition from many residents of Hillside.
They are worried the new plan includes too much zoning for rental properties. Some are also concerned that a proposal to have parking on city owned land near Rotary House for hospital staff will not fix parking problems in the neighbourhood because of concerns over crime where that parking lot would be.
Council will also look at zoning changes that would create 35 hectares of new industrial land north of the railway tracks and west of 116 Street at the same meeting.
