Neighbourhood and Alley Renewal construction is coming to Meyokumin spring 2024!

Preparing for Construction - January 2024

Planning and design has been underway for Meyokumin Neighbourhood and Alley Renewal since March 2022. The Project Team has worked to create a design that meets current City standards, policies and technical considerations and considers public input.

We presented the final design to the community in October 2023 and now the time has come to start Preparing for Construction

We invite you to learn and ask questions about construction and share your feedback and perspectives to identify potential impacts you may experience during construction.

Preparing for Construction

Local Improvements

Decorative Street Blades

As part of the Meyokumin Neighbourhood Renewal, the community has the option to receive decorative street blades throughout the neighbourhood at no additional cost to property owners.

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, roll, drive and gather in the neighbourhood, and how they enjoy City-owned parks and open spaces are also explored.

Alley Renewal will be included as part of the 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.

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.
