Building Great Neighbourhoods - Hazeldean
Residents are to be advised that the Neighbourhood Renewal construction in Hazeldean begins on May 6, 2013. The scope of work scheduled for the 2013 season will involve the removal and replacement of public sidewalk, curb and gutter, streetlight replacement as required and reconstruction and paving of the roads.
About the Project
The Building Great Neighbourhoods initiative involves:
- Renewal and replacement of sanitary and storm sewers.
- Coordination of utility repairs (ATCO, EPCOR).
- Reconstruction of roads, curbs and sidewalks on City-owned property and replacement of streetlights.
- Working with residents to identify improvements to pedestrian and cycling accessibility.
- Consulting with residents to identify capital improvements on City-owned property that will enhance livability.
Reconstruction is funded by a combination of provincial dollars and a 1.5% Neighbourhood Renewal Program tax levy.
Local Improvements are infrastructure projects that benefit a neighbourhood more than the City as a whole. Local improvements involve a cost to property owners. Residents will receive a Local Improvement notice in the mail between January and April 2013 outlining local improvement areas and cost-sharing.
Sidewalk reconstruction: Property owners are assessed based on the width of their property frontage and cover 50% of the cost. Decorative Streetlights: Neighbourhoods may choose to have decorative streetlights installed, for which they pay 100% of the cost above standard galvanized streetlight poles. A neighbourhood must fill out an Expression of Interest and gain support from at least 51% of property owners.
