In 2009, Edmonton became, and still is today, the only city in Canada that has a program geared towards developing a long-term, cost-effective approach to fixing neighbourhood roads, sidewalks, and lights. At today’s Council meeting, we further solidified this commitment by approving a policy that protects the dedicated funds in the Neighbourhood Renewal Reserve, ensuring that this program can continue to build on its success.
Neighbourhood Renewal in Ward 10
Since 2012, in Ward 10, the communities of Parkallen and Lendrum Place have received neighbourhood renewal, and construction is currently underway in Lansdowne. Allendale is slated to begin construction early next year, and consultation in Royal Gardens will begin this fall, with construction beginning in early 2019. As we reach the end of this Capital Budget cycle and move into the 2019-2022 Capital Budget, the communities of Grandview, Malmo Plains, and Pleasantview will have begun, or have been completely reconstructed, by the end of 2022.
Building Great Neighbourhoods
While we're in your neighbourhood doing the renewal program, we also want to hear from you on what you want to see in your community, whether that means more park benches or better street lighting. This feedback will allow the city to create better neighbourhood infrastructure attuned to the needs of the community. For more information be sure to read this report.
