Balwin and Belvedere communities were approved for the Neighbourhood Revitalization program in June 2018. The City worked with Balwin and Belvedere community members through 2018 and 2019 to gather input and identify key components of the Revitalization strategy. This was done through a strategy development community working group, focused neighbourhood discussions and large public engagement drop in events.
Community members shared their priorities for infrastructure improvements in 2019-21, saying updated parks and roadways were a priority. These investments would support the revitalization goals in Balwin and Belvedere and the City is putting these priorities into action through capital project funding.
