Critical public consultations for the future of Riverview will take place this spring and fall. The spring meetings have just been announced (see below). Their focus is on identifying the important heritage aspects of the site (i.e., buildings, trees, history, etc.) and ensuring that those values will be carried forward into the future. In the fall, we expect a future land use plan for Riverview to be developed.
