Phase 2: Technical studies
The second phase of the North King's Town Secondary Plan will involve a number of technical studies, including:
- a land-use plan and urban design guidelines
- a transportation plan
- a cultural heritage resources plan
- a servicing plan (for other infrastructure such as water and sewer) and
- a financial and implementation plan (how the City will finance any of the necessary improvements to infrastructure and public facilities and services).
Council approved the terms of reference for Phase 2 of the NKT Secondary Plan on July 11, 2017. The City issued a request for proposals (RFP) to hire a consulting team to assist with the project. The submission of proposals ended August 30, 2017 and staff are currently reviewing the proposals.
Phase 1: Community visioning exercise and preliminary market analysis
The Visioning Report & Preliminary Market Analysis for the North King's Town Secondary Plan was approved by Council on June 6, 2017.
The community visioning exercise and preliminary market analysis were conducted as the first phase of the overall secondary planning process. The community visioning exercise component involved the creation of a community vision statement, planning principles, and design directions for the secondary plan. It involved extensive consultation throughout a large portion of 2016 and included numerous community engagement events. The preliminary market analysis was intended to support the development of a realistic, balanced, and achievable vision for NKT by reviewing local economic factors and broader development market trends.
