Local Improvement Decision

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

Property owners were mailed a local improvement package dated January 22, 2021 which included information about the sidewalk reconstruction Local Improvement and a form for those who wished to petition against. For owners within the Special Character Area of Garneau, the local improvement package also included information about the decorative street light 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 Improvements, decorative street lights will be installed in the Special Character Area of Garneau and 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
