Residents invited to help shape the future of Cedar’s main street

Residents invited to help shape the future of Cedar's main street.

Cedar residents and business owners have an opportunity to influence how their community will look in the future through a community workshop hosted by the Regional District of Nanaimo.

The RDN is inviting people to participate in the free workshop that launches the Cedar Main Street Design Project, Oct. 22, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Cedar Community Secondary School, located at 1640 MacMillan Rd.

The purpose of the workshop is to start developing a vision for what Cedar main street will look like in the future and establishing design preferences for the area that extends along both sides of Cedar Road between MacMillan and Hemer Roads.

The workshop is the first in a series, leading up to a multi-day community design workshop in January, 2012.

Participants are asked to dress appropriately for the weather as the group will take a walking tour of the planning area.

Space is limited and people interested in attending must register before Friday (Oct. 14) by calling Greg Keller, an RDN senior planner, at 250-390-6510 or e-mailing
