Development in Ward 13
As the City continues to grow, so does Ward 13. A number of residents have asked questions about what part residents can play in regards to development. I always want to hear from residents regarding any proposal. If you have a comment or concern please contact my office.
Please see the map below for information about specific developments in the Ward. Scroll in on the map with your mouse to find the letter and address of a development, then click the corresponding address in the list under the map.
