Bayview Village Mall expansion plans - have you heard??

Bayview Village Mall is planning a major expansion. They began public consultations last year (Bayview Village residents were all invited -  200+ attended) and they have continued to meet with various groups, including our own BVA MAGA Committee, chaired by Victoria Joly.

The mall’s plans are now more fully thought out and they are in the process of submitting them to the city. Bayview Village Mall developers have set up a website to provide more information and also to provide an opportunity for you to have input.

MAGA is working with the owners to find ways to have our Bayview Village community kept updated and to have opportunities to meet and raise issues. We want to let you know that the expansion is planned over many, many years.

Your BVA sees our community role as being an active participant in shaping the future of our community.
