What is Building Great Neighbourhoods?
Great neighbourhoods are the building blocks of a great city, and the City of Edmonton is committed to building great neighbourhoods by investing taxpayer and utility rate dollars in reconstructing neighbourhoods to enhance their livability and longevity.
The Building Great Neighbourhoods Handbook explains the neighbourhood renewal process and how you can get involved in decisions affecting your neighbourhood.
Three programs contribue to Building Great Neighbourhoods:
Drainage Renewal Program
The Drainage Renewal Program is focused on the renewal and replacement of sanitary and storm sewers.
Neighbourhood Renewal Program
The Neighbourhood Renewal Program is focused on the renewal and rebuilding of roads, sidewalks, and street lights throughout the City.
Great Neighbourhoods Capital Program
The Great Neighbourhoods Capital Program improves the livablity of Edmonton's neighbourhoods by investing in community-identified projects.
How are Neighbourhoods Chosen?
Neighbourhoods are chosen based on selection criteria which involves a thorough assessment of the infrastructure, both above and below ground.
The City meets with residents and property owners to clarify the renewal process, inform residents about their role in decision-making, and get feedback on design elements.
