Public Engagement - June 2019
The project team held a public event on June 19, 2019 to discuss the future of 144 Avenue, between 50 Street and 97 Street. Feedback and ideas collected will be used to develop the look and feel for the road such as parking, landscape, crosswalks, curbs and more.
Prior to this event, the project team met with stakeholder groups in the community to kick off the development of the vision and values for this project. Attendees had the opportunity to provide feedback on a draft Vision Statement and values list, and help establish priorities moving forward.
About the Project
The City has initiated a Concept Planning Study for 144 Avenue, between 50 Street and 97 Street, which will support the design of a safe and welcoming street for all users. It will consider traffic and pedestrian safety, access management, parking and accommodation for cars, transit, bikes and pedestrians.
144 Avenue is currently a 4-lane divided collector roadway with occasional on-street parking lanes, providing access to 7 neighbourhoods: Evansdale, Kilkenny, McLeod, Casselman, Kildare, York, and Northmount. Once the Concept Planning Study is completed, it will inform design decisions for the future renewal plans of the corridor.
