Neighbourhood reconstruction is scheduled for Lorelei and Beaumaris as part of the 2020-22 construction program.
Refined Neighbourhood Designs Public Event
Thank you to everyone who attended the Refined Neighbourhood Designs Public Event on October 29, 2019 at Lorelei School. Feedback was shared on the refined designs including upgrades to residential streets, measures to slow traffic, enhancements to City-owned parks and open spaces and improved connections for people who walk and bike.
Lorelei and Beaumaris have been chosen for reconstruction beginning in spring 2020. Neighbourhood reconstruction in Lorelei is expected to begin in spring 2020 with anticipated completion in 2021. Beaumaris reconstruction is expected to begin in the spring of 2021 with anticipated completion in 2022.
Neighbourhood reconstruction is a type of neighbourhood renewal that involves road reconstruction and repaving, as well as replacement of street lights and reconstruction of sidewalks, curb and gutter. It also includes the opportunity for 2 local improvements, sidewalk reconstruction and decorative street lights.
Alley renewal is not part of neighbourhood reconstruction, however the City is currently evaluating the renewal timeline of alleys within Lorelei and Beaumaris as there may be an opportunity to coordinate reconstruction.
A series of public events will be scheduled which will give residents the opportunity to provide their input and feedback as the planning and design progress.

Thanks to those who joined us at the Draft Concept Designs public event on May 8, 2019. Attendees shared input on the draft concept designs including upgrades to parks and open spaces, walkability enhancements and traffic safety improvements. The finalized community vision and guiding principles for the project were shared. In addition, July 2, 2019 was chosen as the date for a community decision regarding decorative street lights.
At the Vision Confirmation and Community Options event on February 28, 2019 we explored options and opportunities. We gathered input that will be used to refine the vision and guiding principles and further explore areas of opportunity.
On Wednesday November 28, 2018, the City held a workshop and invited interested citizens to join us on a community walk to explore topics like traffic, connectivity, open/park space and place-making (creating public spaces that promote health, happiness and well-being). Following the walk, a workshop was held to share ideas for the future of these neighbourhoods and work on developing the Project Vision and Principles.
