After two days of planning and a successful public open house last month, the City of Nelson and its 20-member Railtown planning stakeholder group have received a comprehensive collection of directions, maps and options outlining proposed concepts for the Railtown sustainable neighbourhood plan. They can be viewed online at bit.ly/1W6CVqN and at bit.ly/1p5Gnac.

The city wants to know your thoughts. The deadline for input on both the Railtown project and Cottonwood Market is Thursday, March 31.

“We’ve had great success on the preliminary plans for Railtown, with a lot of public involvement over a short period of time,” says Mayor Deb Kozak. “But we want to continue to provide an opportunity for the public to share their thoughts and ideas, as we don’t want to miss any feedback.

“So folks should make the effort to look at the latest preliminary plans for the district — they’re thoughtful, and very interesting. I think Nelson residents for the most part, like what they’re seeing.”
