The City is developing a secondary plan for the North King's Town area – the Inner Harbour and Old Industrial areas just north of the downtown core. Phase one, the community visioning exercise and preliminary market analysis, was completed from 2016 to 2017. The second phase of the project is ongoing and includes five technical studies, including: land use, transportation, servicing, cultural heritage, and finance and implementation.
