Decorative Street Lighting Option
At the January 2020 event, there was interest in further conversation about decorative street lighting in Calder. Standard street lights will be replaced as part of the Neighbourhood Renewal process. However, property owners in each neighbourhood undergoing renewal have the opportunity to upgrade to their community’s choice of decorative street lights through a community-initiated local improvement process.
Community volunteers lead the campaign to select a decorative option for street lights. The City can provide support by sharing the options available and assisting with gathering feedback at upcoming community engagements on the options. We have an upcoming event in May 2020 where community volunteers could have a conversation with participants.
Please contact Laura Shewchuk at Laura.Shewchuk@edmonton.ca or 780-944-0728 and read the Cost-sharing Opportunities handout if you are interested in learning more. The decorative option would need to be determined and submitted to the City by Thursday July 2, 2020.
Upcoming Public Engagement
Effective immediately, as of Thursday March 12, 2020, following the guidance of Alberta Health Services, all City of Edmonton in-person public engagement sessions and meetings have been postponed. Updates will be provided as they become available.
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 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.
