Community Feedback on Harry Farmer Park - June 2021
Thank you to everyone who engaged with us virtually by completing the survey on how to make Harry Farmer Park better during the Exploring Options and Tradeoffs stage of the project as we adjusted our engagement practices as a result of COVID-19.
Your feedback will be considered, along with technical requirements and City programs and policies, in the development of the draft designs which will be shared in fall 2021.
About the Project
Neighbourhood renewal rehabilitates residential roads, replaces street lights, sidewalks, curbs and gutters, and adds missing sidewalk links where possible. Other opportunities to improve how people walk, bike, drive and gather in the neighbourhood, and how they enjoy City-owned parks and open spaces are also explored.
Alley Renewal will be included as part of the Baturyn neighbourhood reconstruction. Alley Renewal involves alley reconstruction and repaving, improvements to surface drainage where possible, and upgrading of existing alley lighting to LED fixtures. Utility assessments and repairs, along with removals and pruning of trees and shrubs, are also completed.
A series of public events will be scheduled by the project team which will give residents the opportunity to build a project vision and guiding principles together and provide regular feedback on the different stages of the project including design.
Cost sharing opportunities will be made available through the local improvement process for sidewalk reconstruction and decorative street light upgrades in the neighbourhood. Arterial roads are not included in the scope of work.
