Garneau has been chosen for neighbourhood renewal beginning in spring 2021 with anticipated completion in 2022.

View Garneau’s Neighbourhood Draft Design

The City has prepared a Draft Design for Garneau’s neighbourhood renewal that is now ready for your review and feedback. You will learn how the proposed improvements for walking, biking, driving and playing will work together as a system to provide the best neighbourhood experience for all users.

There may be one or more proposed improvements near your residence or property that could affect how you experience your neighbourhood. Please review the detailed maps and design illustrations and then provide feedback through our survey until Wednesday July 15, 2020.

Draft Design Engagement

Review the designs, ask a question and answer the survey.

With public events postponed and physical distancing a priority, we are committed to delivering project information and meaningful online public engagement opportunities. Thank you for participating virtually as we adjust our practices for COVID-19. We look forward to connecting with you and hearing your perspectives as we move toward creating the neighbourhood design for Garneau’s future.

About the Project

Neighbourhood renewal in Garneau will involve road reconstruction and repaving, as well as replacement of streetlights and reconstruction of sidewalks, curb and gutter. It also includes the opportunity for 2 local improvements, sidewalk renewal and decorative street lights. 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.

Please watch your mailbox for correspondence from Building Great Neighbourhoods about the Garneau Neighbourhood Renewal Project. 

Just Bikes

The City is preparing to share the Draft Design for Garneau’s Neighbourhood Renewal. The design will show how the proposed improvements for walking, biking, driving and playing will work together as a system to provide the best neighbourhood experience for all users.

Bike lanes and connectors are important elements in the Draft Design. Before we share the Draft Design, we would like to focus on bikes and engage with residents and property owners nearest to bike lane locations as the infrastructure may affect how you experience the neighbourhood in the future.

Decorative Street Lighting Option

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.

We are checking in to see if you or any of your neighbours are interested in leading 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.

Please contact Becky Redford if you are interested to learn more. The decorative option would need to be determined and submitted to the City by Thursday July 2, 2020.

Project History

Project Update -November 2019

Thank you to everyone who joined us at the Garneau Neighbourhood Renewal Options and Trade-offs Public Engagement Event on November 30, 2019.

At the event, the project team presented design options, along with associated benefits and trade-offs, that are being considered for the neighbourhood. These include traffic calming, pedestrian sidewalks and crossings, bike facilities, and design options for parks and open spaces.

The feedback gathered will be used as we move toward the development of a draft design for the neighbourhood.

If you were unable to attend the event, we still want to know what you think. Please review the event materials and use our online engagement tool to share your feedback.
