Program Details

The Alley Renewal Program outlines a cost effective, long-term strategic approach to renew and rebuild alleys. The program, approved in December of 2018, aims to improve the conditions of alleys across the City over the next 25 years. 

The approved strategy will require approximately $22.3 million (by 2022) annually for the next 25 years. This program will be funded by an increase to the Neighbourhood Renewal Tax Levy. This levy includes a City-wide contribution and not just a contribution from property owners with back alleys. 


  • Address surface drainage issues in the alley
  • Alleys will have a 4-metre wide width, where possible
  • Alleys will have a paved surface
  • Existing alley lighting will be upgraded to LED fixtures
