Residents to indicate favourite projects for Our Rutland

Phase 2 of Our Rutland is underway and residents are invited to indicate their top two favourite project ideas online or at an open house.

“In collaboration with the Rutland Community Panel, we are pleased to unveil the five potential projects which contain a mix of ideas received during the first round of public engagement held February 3 to the 21,” said project manager, Michelle Kam. “Once we know what proposed projects residents prefer, we will carry out a feasibility analysis to determine detailed costs and ensure the project can be realized by September.”

Projects in no particular order include:
-  Roxby Park Enhancements
-  Fitness/Urban Movement Park
-  Public Market Space
-  Aurora Park Enhancements
-  Community Mural Program

Residents can have their say online by visiting Our Rutland at until March 23, or attend the open house at the Rutland Activity Centre located at 765 Dodd Rd., Thursday, March 13, 4 - 6 p.m.

Final project selection and next steps will be announced in early April. Stay informed and subscribe to e-Updates at
