Motion: Councillor D. Smith – “That this Committee provide a landscaping plan, including a pathway, along the existing desired lines, in order to improve the Broadmeadow Linear Park as a year round amenity and improving the amenity for walkers.”
Report: The Parks and Green Infrastructure Division will begin the process of designing a Strategic Landscape Plan for the Broadmeadow Linear Park. This plan will not only integrate existing facilities such as the community garden, the MUGA and playground but will need to link to proposed pedestrian and cycle paths within designated Class 1 public open space lands immediately adjoining to the west of the Broadmeadow Linear Park. Current desire lines may not fully address usage patterns with further development of adjoining lands to the west and east. The input of local elected members and representatives of local residents groups will be welcomed as the process of developing a Strategic Landscape Plan progresses.
