6d. What consultations have you undertaken to-date?        

In recent months, we held four sessions with our near neighbours (95 attendees) and one with our congregation (57 attendees) to introduce the project and identify challenges and issues. These sessions were followed by two working sessions with our near neighbours (64 attendees) where participants commented on draft approaches to addressing key issues. Several constructive ideas were generated from these discussions and further refinements to concept designs are being made as a result of this input.

In the coming months we will reach out to the Oak Bay community and other stakeholders to gain a broader community perspective, while continuing to work to mitigate and address ideas, issues, concerns and opportunities raised through our early engagement process.
