Project History

Project Update - January 2019

Thank you to those who attended the Pre-Construction Public Event on Wednesday January 16, 2019 to view the final designs for the neighbourhood, learn more about the planned 2-year construction and decide on the sidewalk Local Improvement

The final neighbourhood designs were developed based on the feedback received throughout the public engagement process from January to November 2018. They take into consideration City policies and programs, technical feasibility and available funding. The final neighbourhood plans include:

  • Residential streets
  • Traffic measures
  • Commercial streets
  • Bike infrastructure
  • City-owned outdoor spaces
Project Update - November 2018

Thank you to those who attended the Central McDougall - Renewing Local Infrastructure Event on November 7, 2018 to share feedback on the preliminary plans for new infrastructure in the neighbourhood. The preliminary plans included improvements to:

  • Residential streets
  • Traffic measures
  • Commercial streets
  • Bike infrastructure
  • Parks and green spaces

They were developed based on the feedback received throughout the public engagement process, which started in January 2018, including the recent input received from the public event and the survey in September. What is shown in the preliminary plans is dependent on available funding and final City approvals.

Project Update - September 2018

Thank you to everyone who attended the drop-in session on September 15, 2018 and shared their feedback either in person or through the survey. The options presented at this event were informed by the Urban Design Analysis Report (15 MB).

The display boards that were shared at this event and through the survey introduced options for:

  • Bike routes and infrastructure
  • City-owned outdoor spaces, including parks
  • Commercial street renewal
  • Residential street renewal
  • Traffic measures that reduce speeding and shortcutting through neighbourhoods
Project Update and What We Heard Report (Phase II)

In April 2018, the City invited people to attend one of two identical workshops and participate in an online or hard copy survey. The What We Heard report shares the results of Phase II of the City’s public engagement efforts held in April.

Participants were asked to share ideas to refine a project vision and set of important elements to guide the City’s work in the neighbourhood. They were also asked to share advice about the neighbourhood. 54 people participated in the public engagement activities.

Further to the public engagement, the project team visited Central McDougall numerous times in May and June to examine the neighbourhood and the areas that were identified for potential improvements.

Public Workshops - April 2018

Building Great Neighbourhoods held 2 Vision and Priorities Public Workshops to confirm the project vision and important elements that will set the direction for the Central McDougall neighbourhood renewal.

This was an opportunity to help us understand how you move, connect and enjoy the neighbourhood.
