The local area plan update is underway!
Great neighbourhoods are great because of community involvement, careful planning, and thoughtful urban design. The Cadboro Bay Local Area Plan (LAP) will guide growth and future development in the local area and the Cadboro Bay Village for the next 20 to 30 years.
Please stay posted for upcoming community workshops this fall.
Focus on Village Design Charrette: thank you for participating!
The Cadboro Bay Village Design Charrette took place on June 19 & 20, 2018. A description of the Village Design Charrette program is available in the Design Brief. Overall, 184 community members participated in event activities, sharing ideas, and developing concepts for the future of Cadboro Bay Village. View the presentation summary of the ideas gathered during this two-day event. See our display in the Village as we continue to work in the summer. Once we have a draft concept, we will be returning to the community for more feedback. The Village Design Charrette is one of the components of the Local Area Plan Update. Please see our display in the Village as we continue to work over the summer.
