WANTED: Your Input on How to Develop a Community Hub in McCauley
The McCauley community and the Edmonton CDC invite you to weigh in on a major development at the Paskin site at 95th Street and 106 Avenue. Three design/program concepts have been identified by a resident-led design team, and we are seeking your input and ideas about which concept is preferred. You can participate online at www.edmontoncdc.org/projects/paskin.
The three options include a food emporium, a makers’ space, and a hardware store. We are also exploring whether we should add housing on top of these developments. We are interested in what you think. The link identified above includes design concept sketches and a description of each option. The overall goal is to contribute to the development of a commercial zone on 95th Street.
According to Karen Gingras, Edmonton CDC’s Director of Neighbourhood Development, “Now that we have some concepts, we are at the important step of finding out which of these ideas is most likely to fit and succeed in the neighbourhood.”
We invite all readers of _Boyle McCauley News_ to take this important survey and to share it with anyone they know who has a stake in the future of downtown Edmonton.
