University students from the Indian community and a Winnipeg home builder are hoping a fundraising drive will convince a 17-year-old international student who was recently attacked and beaten while waiting in a downtown Transit bus shelter to stay in the city.
There’s one thing that’s very clear in the wake of city hall’s long, tortured process of approving a 12-unit condo project in Crescentwood — the city needs new rules and guidelines on infill projects.
Ventura Land Company donated $15,000 to the LSCU Complex on Aug. 2 to mark the official opening of its Prairie View Park.
Ventura’s vice-president of development Tim Comack made the donation to LSCU Complex board secretary Brian Cornelsen. Macdonald reeve Brad Erb and councillors Deidre Keddie and Robert Turski attended the donation event.
Comack said the donation reflects Ventura’s work to have its Prairie View Lakes development tie in with La Salle’s existing active transportation route and enhance the community’s recreation opportunities.
A contentious condominium development in Crescentwood will go ahead after all after city council voted in favour of it on Wednesday.
Council voted 11-5 in favour of a motion to allow the project from Ventura Developments to go ahead on a vacant lot on the corner of Harrow Street and McMillan Avenue.
A local developer is ramping up its campaign to save a proposed Crescentwood condominium project and to get the city to adopt binding guidelines for future infill developments in mature neighbourhoods.
