ABOUT THE WEST END COMMUNITY PLAN
In April 2012, the City initiated a new Community Planning process for the West End. When completed, the plan will provide long-range guidance on a variety of issues – including housing, transportation, parks and public space, social issues, arts, culture, heritage and more. The new plan will replace the older West End Commercial Policy Plan (1986) and West End Residential Areas Policy Plan (1987).
For information on our planning work to date, upcoming events and opportunities for public involvement, please stay in touch via the following means:
