Project Update - May 2022
Shape the future of Baturyn
Baturyn will see the replacement of its aging roadways and alleys, street lights and sidewalks as part of the City of Edmonton’s Building Great Neighbourhoods program for mature neighbourhoods.
Thank you to everyone who engaged with us during the Community Feedback on Final Design stage of the project. The project team will review all of the feedback provided, along with technical information and City policies and programs. Over the summer and fall, we will be considering the new feedback provided and completing the construction drawings.
Decorative Street Lights Update
Standard street lights will be replaced as part of the Neighbourhood Renewal process. The Baturyn Community League has submitted a choice for a standard street light powder-coated black to be considered as a decorative street light upgrade. Expression of Interest forms will be mailed out to all property owners in summer 2022.

About the Project
Neighbourhood renewal rehabilitates residential roads, replaces street lights, sidewalks, curbs and gutters, and adds missing sidewalk links where possible. Other opportunities to improve how people walk, bike, drive and gather in the neighbourhood, and how they enjoy City-owned parks and open spaces are also explored.
A series of public events will be scheduled by the project team which will give residents the opportunity to build a project vision and guiding principles together and provide regular feedback on the different stages of the project including design.
Cost sharing opportunities will be made available through the local improvement process for sidewalk reconstruction and decorative street light upgrades in the neighbourhood. Arterial roads are not included in the scope of work.
Alley Renewal will be included as part of the Baturyn neighbourhood reconstruction. Alley Renewal involves alley reconstruction and repaving, improvements to surface drainage where possible, and upgrading of existing alley lighting to LED fixtures. Utility assessments and repairs, along with removals and pruning of trees and shrubs, are also completed.

The What We Decided Report describes the final designs for Baturyn's neighbourhood and alley renewal, including when and how the City used policy and program information, public engagement input and technical requirements to make project decisions.
