Project Update - May 2019
Exploring Options and Tradeoffs Engagement Summary
Thank you to everyone who has provided feedback throughout the public engagement activities for the Eastwood/Elmwood Park Neighbourhood Renewal. Your input is important — it helps us understand what matters most to your community and what improvements are needed in your neighbourhoods.
Eastwood and Elmwood Park have been chosen for reconstruction beginning in spring 2020. Neighbourhood reconstruction in Eastwood and Elmwood Park is expected to be a 3-year renewal with anticipated completion in 2022.
Neighbourhood reconstruction is a type of neighbourhood renewal that involves road reconstruction and repaving, as well as replacement of street lights and reconstruction of sidewalks, curb and gutter. Alley renewal is not part of neighbourhood reconstruction. It also includes the opportunity for 2 local improvements: sidewalk renewal and decorative street lights.

Thank you to those who joined us at the Exploring Options and Tradeoffs Public Engagement Events on May 1 and 4, 2019.
Attendees shared input on the benefits and tradeoffs for design options, and helped to confirm the vision and principles for Eastwood and Elmwood Park. The feedback received will help us to refine the designs of the draft concepts, including park features and improvements for people who walk and bike in the neighbourhood.
As part of our mission to develop a relationship with residents and community members, we formed a Community Engagement Advisory Group (CEAG) to reflect the diverse makeup of the community, help refine the City’s approach to engagement throughout the project, and ensure that people know their input is heard and valued.
