The stakeholder advisory group is a forum for City staff to provide regular updates to key stakeholders on the implementation of various transportation initiatives and projects emerging from the Grandview-Woodland Community Plan.
Stakeholders are provided the opportunity to convey their input on these items and the ongoing neighbourhood transportation planning processes.
This webpage is intended to share information and feedback received during stakeholder advisory group meetings.
