Nelson Commons Greenspace Design

The City of Nelson has approved the design of the Nelson Commons Greenspace!

That means that the gravelly area between the parking lot and the Health Employees’ Union building will soon be under construction as Phase 2 of the Nelson Commons Greenspace gets under way.

Phase 2 includes pathway improvements, utility installation (irrigation and electrical), underground fonudations, and plants! We’re excited to see some trees and shrubs between Baker Street and our store front.

The Kootenay Co-op will invite members, suppliers, and others to participate in making the greenspace possible through purchasing commemorative products and plaques to grace the greenspace. Look for more information about members’ roles in the coming weeks.

Meanwhile, check out the designs from Thomas Loh and Chris Holt.
