Chapter 3: Supporting Growth

The individual communities that make up the North Hill Communities share common amenities, services, parks and open spaces and public facilities; however, no single community has the amenities and services to provide for all the daily needs of residents.

Communities depend on their interconnectedness, whether those are commercial amenities and services located on the area’s Main Streets and Activity Centres, recreation opportunities or the network of multi-use pathways that surround and weave through the communities.

Chapter 3 and Appendix A of the Plan include investment priorities for community improvements. These identified priorities do not have associated funding and have no timeline attached to implementation. As investment priorities, they may be implemented by various groups including The City, developers, communities etc. In connection with redevelopment if and when funding becomes available.

Four high-level goals are identified that align with key planning direction in the MDP and include locally specific objectives that support the Plan’s vision.
