Concept for Downtown Block
On September 18, 2012 Chilliwack City Council voted to continue assembling land on a portion of the block bounded by Young Road, Yale Road and Princess Avenue in downtown Chilliwack to create a single 1.5-hectare property. The City already owns 10 lots on this block and will acquire the remaining properties over time. This is a long term initiative and nearby businesses are open.
A municipal advisory committee and a team of planning consultants have developed an exciting concept for the future parcel. The concept combines commercial and mixed-use residential uses in three mid-rise buildings located around an urban park. It includes street and sidewalk improvements.
This is one of the outcomes of the community's vision for Chilliwack's downtown and is intended as a catalyst to accelerate the trend towards positive change.
