Parkdale Community Planning Study Released

November 21, 2016
The Parkdale Community Economic Development (PCED) Planning Project and the Parkdale Village Business Improvement Area (PVBIA) The PCED Planning Project was an 18-month neighbourhood-wide planning initiative to create the Parkdale Planning Study and Parkdale Neighbourhood Plan.  Released in October 2016, the project saw community members, agency staff, PVBIA, business owners, community leaders and academics take part in interviews, surveys, focus groups and planning workshops, resulting in a lengthy report with a vision for Parkdale Village that emphasizes four overarching values: Inclusiveness, Affordability, Diversity and Equity. The report offers a big picture of the current state of Parkdale, and a comprehensive and rational analysis of community challenges and opportunities.  The PVBIA committed to supporting the development of the Neighbourhood Plan through its involvement with the steering committee, workshops as well as sponsoring the Parkdale Neighbourhood Land Trust Solidarity Mural now installed at Queen St. West and Callendar St.  PVBIA’s commitment will continue over the years as we along with many other stakeholders help support the overarching values of the plan.
