The Big Val­ley Coun­cil and CAO were on hand to of­fer as much ac­cu­rate in­for­ma­tion as pos­si­ble to the pub­lic. A short pre­sen­ta­tion out­lin­ing the pro­posed sub­di­vi­sion was given be­fore res­i­dents were pro­vided with the op­por­tu­nity to present their views for or against the pro­posal. Both in per­son and writ­ten sub­mis­sions raised con­cerns rang­ing from the fi­nan­cial fea­si­bil­ity of the sub­di­vi­sion, the im­pact on the bud­get and other vil­lage projects, the ca­pac­ity of ex­ist­ing in­fra­struc­ture to deal with the new sub­di­vi­sion and the im­pact on ex­ist­ing prop­erty val­ues. Dur­ing the Q&A ses­sion par­tic­u­lars re­gard­ing lot sizes, ar­chi­tec­tural guide­lines, set back re­quire­ments, Al­berta Safety Code com­pli­ance and eco­nomic im­pacts were dis­cussed.
