About the Program
Inglewood has been chosen for reconstruction, beginning in spring 2019, with completion expected for 2021.
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. Inglewood's neighbourhood reconstruction will also include the delivery of the 127 Street corridor concept plan that was developed in 2015 through extensive public engagement.
A series of public events will be scheduled which will give residents the opportunity to view the design plans and discuss details with the project team.

Inglewood Neighbourhood - Drop-in Event
On August 16, 2018, the City hosted an event to seek input on concepts for the Inglewood neighbourhood. Attendees were asked to:
- Explore and provide feedback on different options for Building Great Neighbourhoods - Inglewood Neighbourhood Renewal:
- Share your comfort level with different options to enhance your experience walking, biking and driving in Inglewood
- Provide your feedback on the temporary examples of traffic calming measures that were installed leading up to and after the event
- Take a guided walking tour of the measures to learn more about them
- Learn about the Neighbourhood Revitalization program and the exciting opportunity it brings to Inglewood
Traffic Calming Measures
The City installed temporary examples of traffic calming measures in the Inglewood neighbourhood two days before the event at the following locations:
- 115 Avenue and 125 Street
- 115 Avenue east of 126 Street
- 116 Avenue and 125 Street
- 117 Avenue and 126 Street (south side)
- 117 Avenue west of 126 Street
Each location features a different traffic calming measure that could help address speeding and shortcutting in your neighbourhood. They will help residents to get an idea of what they look and feel like and how they impact travel in your neighbourhood. These will be in place for about two weeks and you can provide feedback for each measure through the survey boards located near each location. Your input on these example measures will help inform decisions on types and locations for final traffic calming measures in Inglewood. Concepts will be shared to the public in the fall for further feedback.
Public Engagement Workshops - April 2018
In April 2018, Building Great Neighbourhoods held 2 workshops. The goals: to have attendees assist in refining a project vision and important elements, and to provide their feedback on what the City should consider as we renew the infrastructure in Inglewood.
What We Heard
Stakeholder Outreach Workshop - March 13, 2018
Representatives from community groups and organizations in Inglewood were invited to a stakeholder outreach workshop to learn more about the Inglewood neighbourhood renewal and to have a conversation about building outreach capacity for later public engagement on the project.
The workshop was also used to gather initial ideas for what the community, as a whole, is hoping the renewal work will achieve. Themes from the input gathered in the workshop will be presented in future engagement opportunities for the public to review and refine.
