North College Park Development Returns
Image of proposed development circulated to area residents
Prince George, B.C.- Residents in a College Heights neighbourhood in Prince George have been invited to an information meeting on Tuesday evening to talk about a proposed development of a property that has been in the news before.
The property in question is in North College Park, the development is for a dozen units of seniors housing.
It was May of 2015 when some area residents noted some trees in the park had been cut. Manager of Planning and Development, Ian Wells, convened a meeting with residents at the site to apologize for the removal of trees and said it was a “miscommunication” that a developer had done some clearing to do some geo-technical work but the project had not yet been approved by Council.
At that particular session, residents voiced their opposition to any development of the greenspace, saying they wanted it left “as is” .
The meeting Tuesday evening is set to take place at the Columbus Community Centre from 7-9 p.m.
