The open house held on November 26th revealed the developers’ plan to add 11 single family homes along Beaverbrook and a further 19 homes in a new bay on Lanark Street, essentially following the pattern of the existing neighbourhood.
A significant number of people turned out to the event held at the Sir John Franklin site of the community centre, where the developers were on hand to answer questions and provide information. There were several displays and forms to hear feed-back from residents and other interested parties.
The developers mentioned their desire for variety of home contraction, rather than a singular styled development. Their stated intention is to blend into the community.
