Residents of Boyle Street and Riverdale are teaming up to host a community dialogue on a controversial top-of-bank highrise proposal. The event takes place April 8 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Boyle Street Community Plaza, 9538 103A Avenue.
“There has been mounting interest in this proposed development,” said organizer Andrea Wilhelm. “When people find out about it, they have many questions.”
If approved, the hotel and condo tower would be up to 80 storeys tall, and would be located on river valley land immediately east of the Shaw Conference Centre. City Council is expected to vote on the proposal at a public hearing in late April.
“The meeting on April 8 responds to the need for information, and to the desire to be as prepared as possible for the public hearing,” said organizer Andrea Wilhelm. “Everyone is welcome.”
For more information, call (780) 249-1785.
