Plans for three blocks of White Rock's Johnston Road are to be up for perusal Thursday at the White Rock Community Centre.

White Rock to share ideas for Johnston Road design

The City of White Rock will share three design options for the revitalization of Johnston Road, at an open house Thursday

The City of White Rock will share three design options for the revitalization of Johnston Road, at an open house Thursday (Dec. 8) at White Rock Community Centre, 15154 Russell Ave.

The 5:30-8:30 p.m. event is an opportunity for the community to provide input on plans for a three-block stretch – between North Bluff and Roper Avenue – according to a notice on the city’s website. The plans were developed based on feedback collected earlier this year through a public workshop, a survey and consultation with business owners.

Feedback received at the open house will be used to determine a preferred or combined option.

The event isn’t the first time the public has been invited to weigh in on Johnston Road improvements.

In 2014, a ‘reconstruction and beautification’ task force was established to improve safety along the corridor and upgrade the gateway to the city.

Preliminary plans were brought to an open house in July that year that looked at removing the crosswalk just south of North Bluff Road, taking out trees along the sidewalks and reducing vehicular access to Central Plaza.

The proposed changes were met with criticism from area businesses and residents alike.

For anyone unable to attend the open house, feedback will be accepted online from Dec. 9-23. As well, the display boards will be available for viewing during office hours of that same time period, in the lobby of city hall, 15322 Buena Vista Ave.
