Calder has been chosen for neighbourhood renewal beginning in spring 2021 with anticipated completion in 2023.

Construction Update - Spring 2021

Neighbourhood Renewal construction in Calder is scheduled to start mid to late June. To prepare for year 1 of construction:

Construction will consist of removal and replacement of public sidewalk, curb and gutter, and street lighting, as well as reconstruction and paving of the roads. Please view this scope map to see the 2021 project area.

The City of Edmonton and EPCOR are also working together to construct Low Impact Development (LID), which will help with stormwater retention and help mitigate flooding.

Please watch your mailbox for construction bulletins that will provide more information along with details on landscaping and access. For special concerns or access requirements, such as DATS, please contact the Construction Project Manager, Courtney Beamish at 780-499-3679.

The City thanks residents and property owners for their patience as we make these improvements.

Local Improvement Decision

Residents in Calder had the opportunity to participate in the Local Improvement decision.

Property owners were mailed a local improvement package dated January 25, 2021 which included information about the sidewalk reconstruction Local Improvement and a form for those who wished to petition against. The 30 day petition period has since expired. Since the City did not receive majority (50% +1) petitions against the Local Improvement, sidewalk reconstruction will take place in all project areas over 3 years of construction for the neighbourhood.

If you have questions regarding the Local Improvement process specifically, please contact LocalImprovement@edmonton.ca.

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 were also explored.

Cost sharing opportunities were available through the Local Improvement process for sidewalk reconstruction and decorative street light upgrades in the neighbourhood. Arterial roads and alleys were 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.
