The future of the Garden City Lands in Richmond goes into the public consultation phase as the large 55 hectare land gets set for redevelopment.
The area is bound by No. 4 Rd to the East, Garden City Road to the west, Westminster Highway to the south and Alderbridge Way to the south.
The land is part of the Metro Vancouver Agricultural Land Reserve, meaning development is strictly not permitted on these lands and can only be used for agricultural purposes. However, Richmond is considering other natural options as the land sits in a central location. All three options present a large natural park in the centre of Richmond.
An open house this Thursday officially kicks off Phase 2 of public consultation.
