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, Tuesday July 2, 2019 was chosen as the date for a community decision regarding decorative street lights.
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. Alley renewal is not part of neighbourhood reconstruction. It also includes the opportunity for 2 local improvements, sidewalk renewal and decorative street lights.
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.

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.
