You are invited to an open house on the Cedar Main Street Project – Community Design Charrette.
The Open House will be held at Cedar Secondary School, 1640 MacMillan Road, on Tuesday, June 19, 2012 from 4pm to 7pm followed by a presentation from 7pm to 9pm.
This planning initiative is aimed at creating an illustrated village plan for the area, which includes the lands located on both sides of Cedar Road between MacMillan and Hemer Roads.
The Cedar Main Street Design Project is intended to guide the future development of the main street corridor. The resulting plan could result in changes within the community including land use, transportation, housing, recreation, employment, and servicing.
The Regional District of Nanaimo has a ‘Agricultural Area Plan’ that is intended to celebrate and expand local food production and identifying barriers and opportunities for growth in the local agriculture industry. You can find out more about what’s being done to secure local food sources. Also, background reports and information are also available on the site.
The Regional District of Nanaimo is resuming the Main Street design for Cedar with a four day workshop and presentation, starting today. The charrette will take place at the Cedar Heritage Centre located at 1644 MacMillan Road in Cedar.

on: Thursday, November 24, 2011
time: 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm
This is a last chance for the public to discuss important design elements such as building heights, acceptable uses, and to identify if there are any special site conditions that the design plans should respect, prior to the actual design charrette to be held on January 25th – 28th, 2012 (schedule to be confirmed at a later date).
Local area residents, property and business owners, and those with an interest in property in the Cedar Area are invited to comment on the draft design brief. You can submit your response by email to cedarmainstreet(at)rdn.bc.ca.
Make sure you provide your comments by December 22nd, 2011 to allow sufficient time to amend the draft design brief prior to the charrette in January.
