That's a very nice looking project!

This will be a big shot in the arm to the McKenzie/Shelbourne "village".

 

I grew up not far away on a small farm on Feltham Rd, and this corner has come a very long way from the fields, ditches, and greenhouses of Ruby Road, and of my youth :)

The article makes it sound like the GHRA is already on board. Does this mean smooth sailing through approvals?

Saanich council has voted to send an amended plan for University Heights to a public hearing.

 

Part of the rezoning and development permit application discussed at council’s special meeting Sept. 27 includes a contribution from developer Wesbild of $750,000 for children and families’ charities and greenspace acquisition in Saanich, $100,000 for public art onsite and $150,000 more for electric vehicle infrastructure – a package worth approximately the same as the cost of moving power lines underground for the project.

 

The 5-4 vote saw Couns. Judy Brownoff, Susan Brice, Colin Plant and Nathalie Chambers opposed.

Shelbourne Community Kitchen staff are disappointed their organization was left off the list of recipients of community amenity contribution funding from the University Heights redevelopment project.

 

The charity, operating out of the Lutheran Church of the Cross at Cedar Hill Road and Cedar Hill X Road, offers services for food-insecure individuals and families in the area.

 

On Sept. 27 council approved sending an amended plan for the shopping centre redevelopment by Wesbild to public hearing on Nov. 16.

Erika Schade, Saanich communications manager, said the community kitchen applied for and received $10,000 from the district’s Strategic Priorities Grant program in 2021, and has received such grants from the district since 2015.

As a kid, growing up on a small farm in Gordon Head, that corner was always just Ruby Road, the huge Lum greenhouses, and a couple of farmers fields.

I grew up and lived at Cedar Hill Rd two houses down from the corner of what was Ruby Rd at that time, from 1964-72, routinely tagging along with the older neighborhood teenage boys who used to go bow hunting to pheasant on that (mall) site. Our old hockey pond in winter was right where the library stands at present day Cedar Hill/McKenzie.
