The possible future of the Corydon-Osborne area was on full display to the public Wednesday. City staff hosted an open house at Gladstone school on Gertrude Avenue with their plans for development.
Among the items on display were the city’s plans for commitments and priorities over the next 20 years for land use, transportation, services and open space in the area.
“The goal for the city is to try to densify and add more activity, residential units and uses around transit stations.” Senior planner Michael Robinson told 680 CJOB.
The city says the plan would improve parking and make it easier for developers to build in the area. Now they are reaching out to the public to see what they think.
“There are some new things, so we are here to listen and understand.” Fort Rouge East Fort Garry Councillor Jenny Gerbasi told 680 CJOB.
A date has not yet been set but Gerbasi says the city plans to hold a public meeting on the proposals.
