ABOUT THE WEST END COMMUNITY PLAN

In November 2013, City Council approved the West End Community Plan. The plan provides long-range guidance on a variety of issues – including housing, transportation, parks and public space, social infrastructure, arts, culture, heritage and more. The new plan replaces the older West End Commercial Policy Plan (1986) and West End Residential Areas Policy Plan (1987).

For information on the plan, on-going implementation work, or upcoming events and opportunities for public involvement, please stay in touch via the following means:
