In December 2013 City Council directed City Staff to undertake a study of the Dupont Corridor in Ward 19 and 20. The study examined land uses, streetscape improvements, urban design and built form guidelines, transportation options, the function and design of Dupont Street, and the impact of the rail corridor on potential development options. More information pertaining to the Dupont St Study is below .

In February 2016, the Annex Residents’ Association launched a new tool to monitor the unprecedented number of development projects in the Annex and extending westward into Seaton Village. Please have a look at this amazing tool to learn more about the projects. The SVRA is working with the ARA to develop a Seaton Village (SVRA) portal! https://pandz.crowdmap.com/main

The OMB Hearing is currently scheduled for May 2016 and the City will be in attendance to defend the study recommendations.
