Access to Services: Can QTN Become a 15-Minute Neighborhood?

What services are necessary if more people are going to live in QTN? This is one of the questions for discussion at a public meeting on October 12.

Easy access to more services could be one of the benefits of the new plans for the Pinecrest/Queensview area. Mixed commercial/residential developments could include community oriented services. The plan can encourage that by ensuring sidewalks, bike lanes, small parks, and streets people want to walk down.

A recreation center and other public amenities could be added on public lands in this area. The Lincoln Fields plan could also add desirable amenities within walking distance. One test of a livable neighborhood is being able to access daily needs within a 15 minute walk, with safe biking and good public transit connections to a wider range of destinations. What are QTN priorities for inclusion in these plans?

Join your neighbors to discuss the future of QTN and meet the three Bay Ward candidates for City Council. October 12. 7 p.m. Britannia United Church, 985 Pinecrest Road
