As part of the implementation of the 2011 Official Community Plan, District Community Planning staff will shortly be undertaking a collaborative review of the design guidelines and local plan for Edgemont Village. Help refresh the plan for your village! This community planning initiative is anticipated to occur over much of 2013 with opportunities for public participation at every stage of the process.Details here.
These meetings are timely, as there are development proposals on both ends of the Village. Nearer Capilano Road, the old Supervalu is being sold, and Thrifty's plans a new development and store. On the other end, the plaza containing the North Shore Credit Union is slated for a new multi-story development.
Both developments are looking at three or four stories, so no high-rises here.
At the same time, one more long time retailer has disappeared, about to be replaced by the seemingly unstoppable Fresh Slice Pizza chain. Sigh.
I like Edgemont a lot, and come through the Village at least five or six times each week on business, or shopping. I like that it has maintained a real "village" feel, with a lively street life - at least until 6pm when they roll up the sidewalks.
