Rosehill Reservoir Rehabilitation Project
Rosehill Reservoir Rehabilitation Project (RRRP) - February 2017
The project’s construction start date is currently set for the fall of 2018.
The SRA will continue to monitor the impact on the Little Park during the rehabilitation of the reservoir. The Association’s concern has the support of Councillor Wong-Tam around this issue.
In September 2016 the SRA and several residents met with Councillors Wong-Tam and Matlow to express their concern over the lack of public consultation by the project team. The residents were encouraged by the Councillors to pull together a working group to develop a Vision for the Reservoir Park that reflected the way the park is currently used by the surrounding community.
The Rosehill Vision Committee(RVC) is made up of senior architects, landscape architects, planners and designers from the community. The committee met throughout the fall to prepare a draft vision for the park. The vision which was presented at an overflow community meeting at 44 Jackes Avenue in November is based on a set of principles which informs the design. The plan and principles received wide support at the meeting and has had letters of support from Moore Park Residents, ABC Homeowners and of course our Association.

The Rosehill Vision Committee can be contacted at, email@example.com and also at firstname.lastname@example.org
Councillor Wong-Tam has named the RVC a City “Working Group” which allows the committee access to some(but not all) of the working documents of the project - this has allowed the RVC to move forward with their planning and to work more effectively with the project team.
The Rehabilitation Team has been expanded to include senior team members from Parks, Forestry and Recreation which facilitates addressing outstanding issues around the Rosehill Garden, outstanding Little Park ”asks” and park issues outside the construction footprint.
A Public Consultation Meeting is being proposed for early-late June. The
RVC and the City are currently working together to prepare an optional park plan which they will present at the June meeting.
Questions about the City’s work on the reservoir can be directed to Kate Nelischer, Sr Public Consultation Coordinator, at email@example.com
