Neighbourhood Reconstruction is scheduled for Eastwood and Elmwood Park as part of the 2020-22 construction program.

Construction Update - Spring 2020

The Eastwood/Elmwood Park neighbourhoods will start construction in April 2020. It is a planned 3 year renewal with an anticipated completion in 2022. For a breakdown of how construction is planned year-by-year, see the Construction Staging Map.

In 2020, the construction of Eastwood/Elmwood Park is scheduled for areas from 120 Avenue north to 123 Avenue, and from 89 Street east to Wayne Gretzky Drive south. This means that Projects 2, 3, 4, 12 and A on the Projects Map are scheduled for construction this year.

Please watch your mailbox for construction bulletins that will provide more information along with contact details for any concerns regarding landscaping and access.

April 2020 Construction Bulletin

Local Improvement Update

Residents in Eastwood and Elmwood Park had the opportunity to participate in the Local Improvement decision.

Property owners were mailed a local improvement package dated January 20, 2020 which included information about the sidewalk reconstruction and a form for those who wished to petition against. For Elmwood Park property owners, the local improvement package also included information about decorative street lights and a form for those who wished to petition against.

The 30-day petition period has since expired. Since the City did not receive majority (50% +1) petitions against the local improvements, decorative street lights will be installed in Elmwood Park and sidewalk reconstruction will take place in all project areas over 3 years of construction for Eastwood and Elmwood Park.    

If you have questions regarding the Local Improvement process specifically, please contact localimprovement@edmonton.ca.

Community Engagement Advisory Group
