As tweaks continue to be made to the draft Official Community Plan (OCP) presented to council last week, the public will get their chance to take a close look at the plan and offer feedback this weekend at a special event.
The OCP lays out how Abbotsford will grow to 200,000 residents and envisions a more compact city with specified urban and neighbourhood cores, along with a city centre built around South Fraser Way.
For three days beginning Friday, the plan, dubbed Abbotsforward, will be front and centre at a “pop-up park” in the Sevenoaks Shopping Centre parking lot. The event will include food trucks, live music and mini golf, and aims to increase awareness of the OCP and give the public a chance to add their two cents.
The pop-up park runs Friday from 1 to 7 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
