Riverside Neighbourhood Draft Plan Available to View
Resident participation contributed to a plan focused on keeping the area's great qualities
Medicine Hat – The Riverside Neighbourhood Draft Plan is now available for viewing on the City website. Also available for viewing online are summaries of feedback and input from the community collected over the past year through surveys, trade show booths and open houses.
“We are very thankful to the hundreds of ‘Hatters who contributed to a lively discussion about the future of the Riverside Neighbourhood,” says Robert Sissons, Superintendent of Planning with the City. “This is a great community with history, charm and character. It is important that we work together to develop a plan that helps guide future development while maintaining the things that matter to residents.”
After analyzing feedback, City staff have drafted a 78-page Riverside Neighbourhood Draft Plan that can be viewed online at www.medicinehat.ca/riverside. Paper copies are also available upon request to the Planning & Development Services department at City Hall.
“The next steps are to bring the plan to a Municipal Planning Commission Meeting, and then to a City Council Public Hearing. Interested residents are invited to attend both sessions, which are open to the public,” adds Sissons. “We look forward to sharing the draft plan so people will see how their feedback has been incorporated.
The Municipal Planning Commission meeting takes place on Wednesday, November 14 at 2:30 in City Hall Council Chambers. Once a date for the City Council Meeting Public Hearing is confirmed, it will be shared on the website and via the City’s social media channels.
