The placement of residential uses in and amongst the commercial uses needs to be well thought out given the lived experience of City Place. Where possible, residential should be clustered at the edge of the commercial core to create sightlines to the lake to the east, west and south and to the city to the north. Connecting the various residential "neighbourhoods" through paths, parks and bike lanes will build a sense of community and bring people outside and together. A conscious effort to accommodate pets is key. Proper "waste" sites that include artificial turf and the ability for City workers to hose them down are important. Off-leash areas that are well fenced, well lit and include artificial turf will provide a year-round experience for residents and will foster interaction and community building.
