Draft Community Design Principles - Community Planning

Update on community planning

CCA is working on guidelines for long-term development in Cumberland. This project is an extension of the Community Vision exercise (2008-2011) and the Updated Secondary Plan for Cumberland Village (2011).

Through the planning exercises, Cumberland residents told us they are proud of where they live, value nature and the outdoors and the small-town pace of life. At the same time, new commercial and residential growth would help make our village more sustainable.
