EPCOR’s Expansion Plans: more than a parking lot…?

In April 2018, a group of concerned residents and park-users–Save Gold Bar Park Alliance–began working together to raise awareness of EPCOR’s rezoning application for a portion of Gold Bar Park.  The application involves rezoning a parkland at the entrance of Gold Bar Park for plant expansion and parking.

Save Gold Bar Park Alliance held community meetings in May and June to share ideas and gain support for preserving parkland for residents and park-users.  Members also met with EPCOR and Councillor Ben Henderson to share concerns and pose questions from community, and clarify aspects of EPCOR’s expansion plans.
