Preparing for Construction - February 2021
Thank you to everyone who attended our online sessions with the project team as we adjusted our engagement practices as a result of COVID-19. The sessions aimed to answer any questions you might have regarding what neighbourhood renewal construction will look like in Malmo Plains. If you were unable to attend, please watch this video from one of the online sessions.
Construction is set to begin in spring 2021.
About the Project
The Neighbourhood Renewal program will rehabilitate roads, replace street lights, curbs and gutters, repair sidewalks, and connect missing sidewalk links where possible. Other opportunities to improve parks and public spaces will also be explored.
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 and alleys are not included in the scope of work.
A series of public events were held by the project team which gave residents the opportunity to provide regular feedback on the different stages of the project including design.
