The City of Nanaimo is undertaking the development of a Newcastle and Brechin Neighbourhood Plan, which includes both the Newcastle and Brechin Hill areas between downtown and the Departure Bay ferry terminal. This plan is intended to focus on the specific needs and desires of these neighbourhoods while maintaining the objectives and policies of the city’s Official Community Plan. Local residents are invited to attend the Issues and Opportunities Workshop to provide input on the issues and opportunities within the neighbourhood. This event will be held from 6:30 to 9:30 pm on Tuesday, November 10, 2010, at Ecole Oceane School, 1951 Estevan Road, Nanaimo. A round table format will be used to allow neighbours to guide the discussion. The city asks that you preregister by calling 250-755-4473 in order to facilitate their preparations for the workshop. If you live in this area, be sure to attend to have your say in the future development of Newcastle and Brechin Hill!
