The City of Merritt is interested in your opinion and ideas for repurposing the lands formerly owned by the Canadian Pacific Railway and are now property of the City. In the City’s Official Community Plan, adopted by City Council in 2011, the lands are identified as Future Development which is a generic category for land holdings available for a multitude of possibilities, however somewhat focused on low intensity uses such as park or public uses.
Please accept this as an invitation to attend the Open House at City Hall on October 15th from 4:00PM to 7:00PM. The development of the lands will be a positive amenity for the area and turn an unsightly former rail grade into something nice. All of the proposed concepts are on the website.

If you need any further information regarding the above, please schedule an appointment by calling me at 250-378-8620. I can also be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
