In June, Council directed Administration to work with the Genesis Centre, Attainable Homes, stakeholders and communities to develop measures to address parking and transit concerns around the Genesis Centre. Previous engagement completed in August 2017 helped identify some of the issues. The high level themes identified were parking, congestion, walking and biking. This information was compiled in a What We Heard Report. For more information see the Martindale Land Use Redesignation engagement page.

For more information on the Attainable Homes project in Martindale please visit their website.


A summary of feedback and verbatim comments can be viewed in the What We Heard Report.


Administration presented recommendations to the Standing Policy Committee on Transportation and Transit on March 8, 2018. The recommendations also passed at Council on March 19, 2018. Those recommendations were:

That the SPC on Transportation and Transit recommends that Council:

1. Receive this report for information; and

2. Direct Administration to consider identified missing connections in the Pathways and Bikeways Plan update for prioritization.

Administration has provided the identified missing connections to Transportation Planning, Livable Streets Division. In addition, Administration has compiled all of the feedback collected throughout the engagement process, both related to the topic and unrelated, and forwarded it to the relevant departments for their review and consideration. The Genesis Centre has also been forwarded any applicable comments. Administration is willing to assist the Genesis Centre in the future as they review their parking needs.
