I have lived in Riverbend for nearly three years and one of the many things I have enjoyed writing about as a community columnist is the development and growth of our expanding community.

There have been many new buildings springing up; not only residential but also commercial buildings.

In January I wrote about the Oral Surgery centre at the corner of Main Street and Ridgecrest Avenue. As you may recall, I met with Dr. Antonio Canosa, who is both a partner at the surgery centre and the property developer. I also talked with Lumena Cabral, office manager at the centre.

Over the last number of months, this prominent building has expanded to include LA Dance Academy Wing’n Around, and Spoon Me.

Like many of you, I have enjoyed living near Tuesday and Thursday wing night specials, and waiting patiently for my name to be called for the daily yogurt special.

I recently spoke with Cabral about the second building currently being built on the property. To date, a medical clinic and a Pizza Pizza restaurant are slated to occupy the new structure.
A third building is also planned for development with Browns Socialhouse lined up to occupy it.

Browns has locations in British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan. According to its website, it bridges the gap between upscale casual dining and a neighbourhood pub, delivering a "premium casual experience."

When I first moved to Riverbend, the lack of restaurants was a bit of a disappointment.

In addition to the development at Main and Ridgecrest, I have noticed signage and seen construction taking place for other new buildings. It remains a mystery what will occupy them but nevertheless, this is an exciting time for our community.
