2021 Community Association Land Use Meetings 

Are you interested in land use issues in North Park? Consider joining the Community Association Land Use Committee (CALUC) to stay up to date with developments happening in the neighbourhood. Land Use Committee meetings are open to everyone! 

CALUC members may expect to help coordinate and attend neighbourhood meetings with developers/proponents and provide feedback on proposed developments. You can also expect to work with the City and other local residents on community land use plans and initiatives.

We welcome a wide range of interests and skills on the land use committee. You do not need to have prior experience or knowledge of land use matters to get involved! Contact Eleni Gibson, Land Use Planning Advisor at landuse@npna.ca if you would like to know more, or join the CALUC.
