Elmvale Acres residents have scored a tentative victory with the downsizing of redevelopment plans for the Elmvale Acres Shopping Centre.
“To me it’s a very positive step forward,” said Kevin Kit, president of the Elmvale Acres Community Association, which was established in response to the development application.
(...) “I wasn’t happy with the plan, our urban planner wasn’t happy,” said Kit, referring to an expert the association hired to help advocate for the community’s interests. “I knew the residents weren’t going to be happy as well, based on the visioning and the survey. Elmvale’s collective voice was not reflected in the plan.”http://www.ottawacommunitynews.com/news-story/7212799-elmvale-acres-residents-score-reduction-in-shopping-mall-redesign/
