Building Belgravia Public Event
Belgravia residents and property owners are invited to an open house on November 22, to learn more about various roadway and park projects happening in and around the neighbourhood.
Learn how all the Belgravia projects fit together!
Date: Wednesday November 22, 2017
Location: St. Paul’s United Church 11526 76 Ave NW
City staff will provide information on Keillor Point (previously known as End of the World Park) and the Belgravia Community Traffic Management Plan, as well as Neighbourhood Renewal and Engage 106-76. We are also looking for your input on the paving stone color for the raised crosswalks.
This will be a drop-in event with no presentation.
About the Project
The City initiated a concept planning study for 76 Avenue from Gateway Boulevard to Saskatchewan Drive; and 106 Street from Whitemud Drive to Saskatchewan Drive. This study has reviewed how the corridors serve pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists, and how they support surrounding residential and business communities.
106 Street and 76 Avenue form a crossroad in the mixed residential and commercial neighbourhood of Queen Alexandra in the Greater Strathcona area. Project considerations include:
- Collector roads
- Maintaining connections for neighbourhoods in Edmonton’s inner south west.
- Retaining the on-street Bike Routes identified in the Bicycle Transportation Plan. They cross the city and are needed to connect major destinations.
- Much of the corridor includes bus routes with on-street parking.
The 106 Street and 76 Avenue improvements will be constructed as part of the Neighbourhood Renewal program and begin in:
2017 - Queen Alexandra
2017/18 - Strathcona
2018 - McKernan
2018 - Belgravia
2018 - Allendale
Pleasantview and Empire Park will go through the process at a later date.

Traffic Management and Trial Measures Map
Work has begun on four major projects in Belgravia: The End of the World Park, Neighbourhood Renewal, Community Traffic Management and Engage 106-76. This one construction project brings together the planning and feedback we received from many Edmontonians on each of the individual projects and we anticipate that it will be complete in Fall 2018.
Where We Are Today
Public engagement was an important part of developing the concept plan for this project. Public engagement activities included:
- Residents signed up as Community Partners
- Surveys were used to understand Walkability, Livability, Drivability/Transit use, and Bikeability
- Workshops in each community explored local experiences, challenges, and opportunities
- Feedback on the draft concept plan was gathered at an Open House in April 2016
- In September 2016, information on the completed concept plan was shared at a community event
Additional engagement will be needed in the Pleasantview and Empire Park communities. Information about this engagement will be posted when it is available.
