What Happens when Glenwood Grows?
The ARP (Area Redevelopment Plan)
  What do you want for the future of Glenwood? What should future housing options look like and where should they be located? How can future development investment be guided to maximize benefits to our neighbourhood? These questions are being asked now, in the creation of an Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP), and statutory document which will guide how Glenwood, its homes, its housing options, its commercial areas and amenities, will redevelop over the coming years, and even decades. How can you get involved? To start, just send us an email or give us a call. Get in the loop so that you know what is happening and when the meetings are taking place. Enter into discussions with your neighbours and think about what this neighbourhood means to you and your family and how you would like it to grow and mature. For more information, visit
