RDN to host open house on Cedar main street plan

The Regional District of Nanaimo is hosting an open house and presentation regarding the Cedar Main Street design project later this month.

The purpose of the open house, scheduled for April 24 from 6-9 p.m. At Cedar Heritage Centre, 1644 MacMillan Rd. in Cedar, is to seek community input on the draft Cedar Main Street Village Plan.

The project is an RDN community planning initiative aimed at creating an illustrated village plan for the area, which includes lands located on both sides of Cedar Road between MacMillan and Hemer roads.

The draft plan currently includes land use policies and development guidelines intended to guide future development and the reflect the residents’ long-term vision for the community.

Some of the elements that will be discussed include building and landscape design, pedestrian and cyclist access, parks and recreation and transportation.

The draft plan could also result in changes that include land use, housing, recreation, employment and servicing.
