    How has the community been involved in the project?

    Community engagement has served a critical role in the project’s development and will continue to guide RidgeWalk into the future. 

    Since early 2018, the project team and Master Plan consultants have engaged with the community about the project and its themes around art, history, transportation, recreation, parking and tourism.

    During this time, 25 public events and community meetings have been held, with more than 500 people in attendance.

    The release of the Draft Master Plan is the latest step in consultation in the development of RidgeWalk, and follows significant community engagement since early 2018.
