Open house examines Summerland’s growth strategy

Summerlanders will have another opportunity to share their opinions on growth at an open house for the growth strategy.

Summerlanders will have another opportunity to share their opinions on growth as the municipality holds an open house for the growth strategy this evening.

The open house runs from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Arena Banquet Room, 8820 Jubilee Rd. E.

So far this year, more than 1,200 Summerlanders have been involved in numerous community dialogue sessions, the Action Festival booth, a cardboard city building event during Earth Week, 10 animated youth videos and online surveys. The information collected will be used for Summerland’s Urban Growth Strategy.

The open house this evening will provide an analysis of 13 potential growth areas. Residents will be able to see the financial, environmental and social aspects of focussing growth in each area.

A final growth options survey is available at futuresummerland.com.
