La Perle and Belmead have been chosen for Neighbourhood Renewal. The planning and design is currently underway with construction anticipated to start in 2026.

Building a Project Vision Together and Exploring Opportunities - January 2024

Thank you to everyone who engaged with the Project Team during the Building a Project Vision together and Exploring Opportunities stage of La Perle and Belmead’s Neighbourhood Renewal. The online survey closed on February 5. The feedback gathered will be used to co-create a Vision and Guiding Principles for La Perle and Belmead’s Neighbourhood Renewal and will help to inform the options we share in the Exploring Options and Tradeoffs stage. 

The public engagement activities and participation are now summarized in the Engagement Summary

A What We Heard Report summarizing your feedback will be available in the coming months.

In spring 2024, we will be seeking your input again as we move into the Exploring Options and Tradeoffs stage of Neighbourhood Renewal. 

We commit to using your community’s input in co-creating a Vision and in deciding on key elements to be explored in the development of the overall neighbourhood design to align with that Vision for your Neighbourhood Renewal project.

About The Project

Neighbourhood reconstruction rehabilitates residential roads, replaces street lights, sidewalks, curbs, and gutters, and adds missing sidewalk links, where possible. Other opportunities to improve how people walk, bike, drive and gather in the neighbourhood, and how they enjoy City-owned parks and open spaces are also explored.

At the beginning of the project, the Project Team will work with the community to create a project Vision and Guiding Principles. People who live, work and play in La Perle and Belmead will be asked for regular feedback on the different stages of the project.

Cost-sharing opportunities will be made available through the Local Improvement process for sidewalk reconstruction and decorative street light upgrades in the neighbourhood. Arterial roads and alleys are not included in the scope of work.  

Working together to make the most of your neighborhood

This is your city and your neighbourhood. We want to understand how you experience your neighbourhood and ask for your input on what we might do to make it better. We will engage and work with you on the renewal of roads, sidewalks, street lights and park spaces and promote other community opportunities to enhance how people live and interact in your neighbourhood. We commit to being open and transparent about how your input is used. Let’s make the most out of your neighbourhood.
