EDMONTON — Designers are looking at including a hub for car and truck rentals as one way to reduce the need for private vehicles in the City Centre Airport redevelopment.
That’s one idea for the proposed environmentally friendly community that will be outlined at public sessions this week as work continues on a master plan for the 217-hectare site, says Phil Sande, project executive director.
The gatherings Monday, Wednesday and Thursday follow up on suggestions provided by 100 to 120 people at initial meetings last October, as well as from the website and in discussions with interested groups, he said.
