Timeline and Milestones
Planning for the development of a Downtown Event & Entertainment District, anchored around a new event centre/arena and convention centre, and connected by a Bus Rapid Transit system, is a multi-year process covering many detailed aspects of the project.
Targeted and broad engagement will provide opportunities for all residents and visitors to provide feedback on the project, as well as targeted engagement with stakeholders, rights holders and partners. Engagement has been divided into major phases. At the conclusion of each phase, engagement reports on What We Heard will be completed. Some time is included between each phase for data analysis and to allow Administration to incorporate feedback into the next phase of work. Engagement with Indigenous peoples, as well as those with living experiences of systemic barriers, will take place through all phases.
*Please note these timelines are subject to change as the project proceeds and needs are reassessed.
