The Town of Sylvan Lake held an open house for the reIMAGINE Sylvan on Oct. 23.
The open house was held to give Town residents the opportunity to review the plans and boards for reIMAGINE Sylvan, as well as offer feedback on things they liked and did not like about the plans.
Vicki Kurz, economic development officer, said 72 people were in attendance on Tuesday evening and that all the results and comments from the open house will be compiled with the rest of the engagement process.
For those who were unable to attend the open house, the boards are now on the Sylvan Lake website for people to provide comment and feedback until Oct. 30.
“I think the most important thing to note is that they are concepts that were developed during the May community design workshop and the plan is an overarching plan that will take place over the course of 20 years,” explained Kurz.
Kurz added that the area development plan is about land use, transportation, parking, parks, open space and trails.
“It doesn’t go into minute details about things such as what you can and can’t do in the parks,” continued Kurz.
Kurz said they are aiming for the document’s first reading and public hearing to be on Dec. 10.
The public hearing will be the last opportunity for feedback.
