Look at me, lazy-ass Dechene, still playing catch-up on what’s happening downtown. I didn’t manage to put this together last week, so here’s a rundown of what happened at the March 22 city council meeting.
There weren’t a whole lot of surprises at the meeting, actually. The condo complex slated for Rose Street (the Gardens on Rose), for instance, was approved. It did lead to a little bit of discussion from council about how happy they are to see some of the surface parking downtown being used for development. Consensus seems to be that the Downtown Neighbourhood Plan is doing its job even though it isn’t a bylaw yet.
