Tamarack invites community input into Cardinal Village develop.m.ent

By Fred Sherwin

Members of the public are being invited to attend an open house at Capital City Church this evening to provide their input into the future Cardinal Village develop.m.ent being built by Tamarack Homes.

Cardinal Village is a new community being proposed for the lands generally located east of Cardinal Creek to Ted Kelly Lane in the west and south of Highway 174.

The 337-hectare, 4,000 unit develop.m.ent was first proposed in 2009 on the premise that the city would expand its urban boundaries by 850 hectares. When city council voted against expansion, Tamarack and several other developers appealed the decision to the Ontario Municipal Board and won, clearing the way for the future sub-division.

The first step to planning that sub-division begins tonight when memders of the public can provide their input into the sub-division develop.m.ent process, objectives, background and schedule.

Tamarack will use the information provided by the public in the develop.m.ent of several high level concepts for the new community which will be unveiled next fall for futher public input.

The original concept called for a generous amount of green space, hundreds of trees and a network of pathways.

Tamarack representative Ted Phillips says the future develop.m.ent will likley contain the same natural amenities.

"We bought the property with the intention to make it a flagship community and that's still our intention," says Phillips. "But to do that we need to get the input from the community as to what they feel the opportunities are. What are the challenges, and what do they want protected."

Tonight's meeting is the first step in the Planning Act and Environmental Assessment Act process which must be followed by the developer.

An Official Plan Amendment and Secondary Plan will be prepared to detail land uses. These plans will be developed in conjunction with two concurrent and integrated Class Environmental Assessment Studies / Master Plans: a Transportation Master Plan will provide for a road and transit network and a Master Servicing Plan will provide for water, storm drainage and sanitary services.
