Please visit the boards on Panel # 5 which illustrate a proposal for the sites west of Kerr Street which are currently vacant.These sites were not included in the EFL Official Development Plan. The proposal aims to change the permitted use from commercial to primarily residential with some small scale retail at the water’s edge. This retail (which may include uses such as a coffee shop, corner store, bakery, etc.) will help to animate the waterfront and provide some services for local residents. How do you feel about this proposal? __________________________________________________________________________________ __________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________ Parks and Open Space 4. The park areas proposed for Phase 2 generally correspond with those approved in the ODP (See Panel # 13).This phase includes a play field associated with the elementary school and three linear parks: one main park along the river and two park corridors connecting from Marine Way to the riverfront.The easternmost corridor parallel to Kinross Street will include water features for biofiltration and habitat as well as more active recreation and play facilities. Do you have any comments on the parks and open space as proposed? __________________________________________________________________________________ __________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________
Sustainability 5. Please visit the boards on Panels # 14, 15, 16, and 23 which illustrate the sustainability features of the proposal.

Please visit the 3D model and boards on Panel # 17 which illustrate the proposed building forms.

The proposed building heights vary between 2 to 5 storeys for townhouse forms and 2 to 13 storeys for apartment buildings. Do you have any comments on these proposed building forms? __________________________________________________________________________________ __________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________ Streets and Movement 7. Please visit the boards on Panels # 21 and 22 which address streets and movement. The ODP calls for priority to be given to walking, cycling, and transit while providing reasonable vehicle access and discouraging short cutting.Do you think the proposal is consitent with this goal? __________________________________________________________________________________ __________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________ Please use this space for any other comments: __________________________________________________________________________________ __________________________________________________________________________________ __________________________________________________________________________________ __________________________________________________________________________________ __________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________ __________________________________________________________________________________ __________________________________________________________________________________ Thank you for taking the time to complete this Comment Form.
