City hoping for input on 2nd Ave S. and Moir dog park on Wednesday

Reclamation of Moir gravel pit, and plans for 2nd Avenue South up for discussion in Cranbrook

It’s the week of open houses and workshops for the city. On top of the workshop on the future of the downtown city-owned block Tuesday, there will also be an open house on Wednesday that looks at 2nd Avenue, as well as the Moir gravel pit reclamation.

The Wednesday open house runs from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Manual Training School.

The city, in conjunction with civil engineering firm Urban Systems, will be presenting both the conceptual design for the 2nd Street South corridor and the reclamation plan for the Moir gravel pit.

The session on 2nd Street South will be to gather public input to bring back to council and help in decision-making. It covers the corridor from Highway 3 to 14th Avenue South.

The part on the Moir gravel pit will focus on the city’s plan to redevelop the area once it is depleted into an off-leash dog park in early 2014.

Representatives from both Urban Systems and the city will be on hand to provide information on the projects, as well as present project concepts, progress to date and next steps.
