Hay River asks residents for feedback on Fraser Place


A public hearing will be held later this month in Hay River for residents to have their say about the proposed Fraser Place development.

The meeting will take place on Wednesday, March 17 at 7pm at the town’s legion.

It will provide information about the development’s design and the rezoning plan, and will also take feedback, comments and suggestions on aspects of the project.

The proposed development will see 29 units built in the community. More housing is said by the town to be necessary as officials believe a population boom is coming in the years ahead.

The town started the rezoning process for the land in January but promised to consult residents before final decisions are made by council.

Planned changes include zoning some land as residential so houses can be built, while changing another area to green space for the creation of a playground.

If the project moves ahead, construction at Fraser Place could begin before the end of 2021, according to the town’s council.

Those who believe they will be affected but cannot attend the meeting can submit comments in writing to town hall by noon on March 16.
