An open house regarding the site of a fire hall at 3090 East 54th Avenue (and Kerr Street) is scheduled for April 1st, from 5 to 8pm at the site (3090 East 54th). A new fire hall is proposed that would be housed in the lower two floors of a new 6-storey building. The upper floors would include 31 units of social housing. A building height of 86 feet (26.2m) and a FSR of 2.69 is proposed.

There was an Open House originally scheduled for April 2nd for 2313-2328 Galt Street.

The rescheduled event will take place on Wednesday, April 15th at the Renfrew Community Centre (4:30 – 7:30pm). A total of 28 units of secured market rental in a 41.5 foot, 2.25 FSR building is being proposed for this site in Norquay.
