Is there a possibility that a pocket park could be made across from RDN headquarters?
There is lots of activity happening at the corner of Uplands Drive and Hammond Bay Road. The new Hammond Bay Road Library is well on the way to being built, the area is outlined in blue. Just out the back at 6025 Uplands Drive the lot has been cleared for the new “wet” housing project to be called Uplands Walk, outlined in red.
What will happen to the last block of trees at the corner of Hammond Bay Road and Calinda? This lot is just across the street from the Regional District of Nanaimo head office. Wouldn’t it be an idea to save this last lot as a pocket park?
There are some major heat islands in this area and some planning needs to be done to mitigate this effect.
