An upcoming open house will give people a chance to view and comment on amendments to the area structure plans of two Red Deer neighbourhoods.

Amendments to both the East Hill Major Area Structure Plan and the Timberlands Town Centre Neighbourhood Area Structure Plan will be the focus of the public open house on March 14, from 2 to 7:30 p.m. at the Balmoral Bible Chapel, near the intersection of 55th Street and Rutherford Drive, with presentations going from 3 to 5 p.m.

Currently the city is in the process of reviewing and updating the primary documents that provide direction to developments in East Hill.

This is being done to incorporate the 2009 annexation area to the east, complete a comprehensive review of the existing structure plan and incorporate policy direction provided by council’s adopted planning tools.

Residents who attend the meeting will also have the chance to view changes to the adjustments to the Timberlands town centre and main street commercial areas.

These proposed changes include making the northern half of the subdivision a more walkable, environmentally sustainable community with less commercial and more residential and park space.

Other changes to the Timberlands area include new housing types, such as carriage homes, wide-shallow lots, live-work units and laneless single- family homes.

The commercial area will focus on streetscape aesthetics and commercial building design.

Those unable to attend can offer feedback and learn more about the changes by visiting the city planning department’s web page at www.reddeer.ca/cityplanning.

A survey will be available from March 11 to 22.
