The approval of the CDP is the culmination of a long, long process. This could not have been achieved without the support and diligence of many community members, especially those who served on the Public Advisory Committee (PAC), and the institutional landowners.
The CDP is meant to provide a broad and integrated twenty year vision and guidance for growth in the community. Although focused on Main Street, a key component of the CDP is the potential sale and intensification of the lands currently owned by the Oblate Fathers and the Sisters of the Sacred Heart. In particular, the properties owned by the Oblate Fathers have considerable redevelopment potential and will likely be sold for redevelopment over the next decade. The OECA remains committed to working closely with key stakeholders to ensure that community consultation is represented throughout the redevelopment process. In 2010, members of the CDP Public Advisory Committee (PAC) began actively meeting with stakeholders to prepare principles to guide planning and design of the lands. That culminated in the March 10, 2011, public open house held at Saint Paul University where a demonstration plan, illustrating one possible development scenario for the lands, was presented to the community. For more details, view the open house presentation.
The CDP was presented at the city's planning committee meeting on June 28, 2011. To view the official minutes from the meeting, please click here. The CDP was given final approval, with amendments, at the city council meeting on August 25, 2011.
