Project Update - November 2018

Thank you to those who attended the Central McDougall - Renewing Local Infrastructure Event on November 7 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 we 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.

Watch for the next public engagement event in January 2019, which will confirm the final construction design for the 2019 - 2020 neighbourhood renewal.

About the Program

Central McDougall has been chosen for reconstruction beginning in spring 2019 with completion expected for 2020.

Neighbourhood reconstruction is a type of neighbourhood renewal that involves road reconstruction and repaving, as well as replacement of streetlights and reconstruction of sidewalks, curb and gutter. Alley renewal is not part of neighbourhood reconstruction. It also includes the opportunity for two local improvements, sidewalk renewal and decorative streetlights.

Fact Sheet

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 the Central McDougall numerous times in May and June to examine the neighbourhood and the areas that were identified for potential improvements. The City will engage further with the public in the summer/fall to collect additional thoughts and suggestions. You can sign up to receive notifications of when opportunities for engagement are made available.

Public Workshops - April 2018

Building Great Neighbourhoods held two 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.

Stakeholder Outreach Workshop - March 8, 2018

Businesses and organizations in Central McDougall were invited to a stakeholder workshop to learn more about the Central McDougall neighbourhood renewal. This was a facilitated workshop to provide the initial opportunity for ideas for what the community, as a whole, is hoping the renewal work will achieve. Themes from this session will be presented at the public meeting in April.
