Phase one engagement summary

In phase one, engagement provided residents with a range of opportunities to re-engage with Bremner and the LEA and confirm the vision and principles created through the Bremner Growth Management Strategy. Casual conversations took place at pop-up engagement events at the Ardrossan Recreation Centre, Emerald Hills Leisure Centre and Millennium Place. The County’s social media campaign helped provide information on the project and upcoming opportunities to provide feedback. An open house was held at the Strathcona County Community Centre. Comment sheets, available at the open house, and an online survey gathered input from the public on topics including transportation choice, mixed-use development, density, four season design, and the Local Employment Area, formerly identified as the Development Expansion Area
