The <br />Plan includes directions that any new development or streetscape work within the portion of the <br />community with existing estate and large lot residential should respect the existing lot fabric and <br />enhance the existing character. Any new development within the River Road extension area <br />should provide a range of land uses in a more sustainable formto help contribute to a more <br />complete community.The next steps will involve the preparation of City-led, formal planning <br />amendment, engineering assessment and various technical studies that will guide and dictate <br />the future requirements for the area. <br />Respect and Enhance A More "Complete" <br />Existing AreasCommunity <br />Sustainability <br />Mix of Uses along River <br />Protect "the Jewel" <br />Road Extension <br /> <br />Figure 2-Master Plan Guiding Principles <br />3 - 2 <br />
