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.
