Look at design and program concepts planned for McCauley

The McCauley community and the Edmonton Community Development Company (CDC) invite you to weigh in on a major development on 95 Street on either side of 106 A Avenue. A resident-led design team has identified three design/program concepts and are seeking your input and ideas about which concept is preferred. Participate online at edmontoncdc.org/projects/paskin.

The three options include: a food emporium, a makers’ space, and a hardware store. We are also exploring whether we should add housing on top of these developments. Community input is appreciated. The link identified above includes design concept sketches and a description of each option. The overall goal is to contribute to the development of a commercial zone on 95 Street.

According to Karen Gingras, Edmonton CDC’s director of neighbourhood development, “Now that we have some concepts, we are at the important step of finding out which of these ideas is most likely to fit and succeed in the neighbourhood.”

Mark Holmgren, executive director, adds, “We invite all readers of Rat Creek Press to take this important survey and to share it with anyone they know who has a stake in the future of downtown Edmonton.”

The Edmonton CDC is a non-profit community development company operating primarily in urban core neighbourhoods to work with residents, local businesses, and other stakeholders on initiatives that strengthen social and economic life and that reflect their interests and ideas about how to do that.
