Neighbourhood Renewal is expected to begin in Grandview Heights in spring 2020.
Refined Designs Public Event: November 2019
Thank you to everyone who joined the Refined Designs Event November 14, 2019 at the Grandview Heights Community Centre. Feedback was shared on the designs that included upgraded residential streets, measures to improve safety, enhancements to neighbourhood parks and open spaces and improved walking and biking connections.
Your input will be incorporated along with technical requirements, City policies and programs for the final design that will be available in early 2020.
Grandview Heights has been chosen for reconstruction beginning in spring 2020 with completion expected for 2021.
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.
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.

Thank you to those who were able to join us at the Draft Concept Designs public event on May 16, 2019. Attendees shared input on the draft concept designs including upgrades to parks and open spaces, walking and biking connections and traffic safety improvements.
The finalized community vision and guiding principles were shared and July 2, 2019 was identified as the date for a community decision regarding decorative street lights.
At the Vision Confirmation and Community Options event on February 21, 2019, we explored opportunities around community green spaces and parks, connectivity and corridors, placemaking (creating public spaces that promote health, happiness and well-being) and how you move around your neighbourhood. Input gathered will be used to refine the vision and guiding principles and further explore areas of opportunity for Grandview Heights. If you were unable to attend, please view the event materials.
The City hosted a Community Walk, Vision and Guiding Principles Workshop on December 5. During the walk, participants explored topics like traffic, connectivity, neighbourhood open/park space and place making (creating public spaces that promote health, happiness, and well-being). Following the community walk, the Vision and Guiding Principles workshop allowed for the sharing of ideas and feedback on the Neighbourhood Renewal project.
