The West End community planning process is launching!

West End Community Plan

The West End Planning Team is about to begin a community-wide discussion about the future of the West End.

The West End community planning process will be an 18-21 month initiative to bring the community together to shape a new community plan for the West End.

The plan will provide clarity and direction on the growth and evolution of the community for the next 20 to 30 years. We want your input on some of the key issues in the West End including: ensuring diverse and affordable housing; preserving and celebrating the history and heritage; improving local shopping/entertainment areas; making the community more walkable for all ages and abilities; and supporting vibrant public spaces for residents, businesses and visitors.

What do you Picture?

What is your vision for the future West End? What are your ideas for making the West End an even better place to live, work, learn and play? Are there opportunities to make the West End more sustainable?

We want to hear from as many people as possible, so please encourage your friends, neighbours and colleagues to get involved!

There will be many opportunities for you to share your ideas about the community and provide input into the planning process. Mark your calendars for the following events in May to kick-off the process:
