Chilliwack – Back in September, the City of Chilliwack hosted the first of a year long string of public meetings on the proposed Sardis Neighbourhood Plan. Over 300+ showed up at Sardis Elementary School for a quick video presentation and the next two hours were face to face meetings with city planners.
Chilliwack’s Official Community Plan (OCP) projects that close to 4,000 additional dwellings will be built in the Sardis area by 2040. The population is predicted to swell to over 130,000 by 2040. The city has been developing a Sardis Neighbourhood Plan to support future decision making and ensure new development considers the specific needs and desires of the neighbourhood.
A Public Workshop is Monday, November 4.
On September 25, over 300 residents attended the public meeting at Sardis Elementary and approximately 600 residents completed the online survey to provide input into the first phase of the planning process for a visionary plan that will shape the future of Sardis.
Now, we are bringing forward the information and priorities you shared in a highly interactive, facilitated workshop and you are invited to get involved. Participants will work in groups to discuss how best to integrate community priorities into the Sardis Neighbourhood Plan.
Themes to be discussed:
- Greenspace / Trails/ Environment
- Commercial Services and Community Amenities
