Drop-in Information Session
On March 11, 2017, the City held a drop-in information session. Participants were invited to view the renewed Jasper Avenue preferred design before it is presented to City Council in the spring. Ideas for design elements, including trash cans, street lights, benches and bus shelters, were shared, and child-friendly activities provided.
About the Project
Creating a new Jasper Avenue
Jasper Avenue is Edmonton’s Main Street, connecting the West End to Downtown through the historic and diverse neighbourhood of Oliver. The section of Jasper Avenue from 109 Street to 124 Street is slated for full reconstruction beginning in 2019. This presents the opportunity to develop a comprehensive vision for the avenue which will direct the design of improvements and upgrades. The purpose of the Imagine Jasper Avenue project is to envision an innovative, vibrant and relevant streetscape that will strive to balance the needs of the community, commuters, businesses and visitors.
A renewed Jasper Avenue will provide a safe and pedestrian friendly street that will establish a unique sense of place that fosters lively street life, diversity, growth and transformative land use.
