  • What is the City’s Vision for Traditional Mainstreets?

    Southminster Church, the Beer Store, and now Fifth Avenue Court—all contentious development proposals on Bank Street, and the outcomes will change the face of our neighbourhoods. Will this be for the good? Most people support some level of intensification—it’s important for promoting vibrant and walkable neighbourhoods in the urban core. But City Council seems intent on increasing density above all other considerations, even though there are no density targets in place for Bank Street.
