North King's Town sessions and talking circle to kick-off second phase of planning

February 14, 2018 -

The City is launching the next phase of its work to develop a secondary plan for North King's Town (NKT) – the Inner Harbour and Old Industrial areas just north of downtown. This second phase involves five technical studies: land use, cultural heritage, transportation, servicing and finance and implementation.

"These studies will help us create the plan for this diverse and important area and feedback will help us get them right. Because there is so much ground to cover, we are doing this in stages starting with the land use plan and the cultural heritage analysis," says Sonya Bolton, senior planner.

Come to one of these engagement opportunities to launch Phase 2 of the NKT planning process – and learn about the draft land use plan and cultural heritage analysis:
