How Will the City Design Streets and Neighbourhoods?
February 08, 2013
The City of Edmonton is hosting a repeat of the January meetings to get public input on 2 projects: Complete Streets and Designing New Neighbourhoods. City staff will be available to share information and answer your questions.
|Date:||Tuesday February 12, 2013|
|Location:||Northgate Lions Seniors Recreation Centre, 7524-139 Avenue|
Citizens can also share their feedback through the online discussion forums at www.edmonton.ca/DesigningEdmonton, which will be open until February 15, 2013.
As Edmonton continues to grow, we have to consider how new neighbourhoods are designed to encourage the development of innovative and unique communities. We also need to think about how our new and existing streets can better serve everyone.
The Complete Streets project is a new approach to planning and designing Edmonton’s streets. It is based on the idea that roadway design should take into consideration the surrounding area’s characteristics, as well as the needs of all users of the street.
The Designing New Neighbourhoods project led to the development of guidelines that will influence the physical structure and layout of our new neighbourhoods.
