Final round of Ridgewood South public open houses set
Round three of public open houses on the proposed Ridgewood South development in Charleswood have been scheduled.
On Mon., April 23 and Tues., April 24, Landmark Planning and Design, along with Stantec, will host the last planned open house on the Ridgewood South precinct plan. The plan will guide the development of the 800-acre parcel of largely vacant land in south Charleswood.
"For people who don’t want to see anything happen, they’ll be disappointed," said Donovan Toews of Landmark Planning and Design.
"For people who are interested in seeing progression for Charleswood, we think they’ll be satisfied we’ve done our homework."
The plan will outline the road system for the area, proposed land uses and proposed public reserve areas, Toews said.
It is the result of continued meetings with landowners and area stakeholders, he said.
"In terms of additional greenspace and a network of greenspaces, I think the flavour of the new development will be quite satisfying for residents," Toews said.
Residents interested in attending have two options: the open houses run from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. on both days at the Charleswood United Church, at 4820 Roblin Blvd.
Ridgewood South is bordered by the Perimeter Highway to the west, Rannock, Ridgewood and Eldridge avenues to the north, and Wilkes Avenue to the south. It is one of 18 new communities on the outskirts of the city identified for potential development and has been slated for development since 1981.
It will likely be several years before any sort of development begins. The plan is expected to be complete by this fall and will need city council approval.
