Lansdowne has been chosen for Alley Renewal. The planning and design is currently underway with construction anticipated to begin in 2025.
Project Update - November 2023
Thank you to everyone who attended the ‘Alley Talk’ drop-in event on Wednesday, November 22 and to everyone who participated in the initial survey for Lansdowne Alley Renewal.
The online survey closed on November 26 and we appreciate everyone who took the time to provide their valuable feedback on how you would like to be communicated with as Alley Renewal moves forward in your neighbourhood.
We will be in touch in spring of 2024 with more details and information about Alley Renewal design plans for Lansdowne.
Alley Renewal: Overview
About the Project
Alley Renewal involves alley reconstruction and repaving, improvements to surface drainage where possible, exploring opportunities to improve traffic safety and active mode connections (for walking, rolling and biking), and upgrading existing alley lighting to LED fixtures.
If property owners are interested, there is an opportunity for a local improvement to add alley lighting. Utility assessments and repairs, along with removals and pruning of trees and shrubs, are also completed.
Thank you to everyone who engaged with us during this first stage of engagement of Alley Renewal. The Lansdowne Project Team wanted to understand how to best communicate with neighbourhood residents, property owners and businesses. The online survey closed on May 8, 2023 and we appreciate everyone who took the time to provide their feedback.
The project team will review all of the feedback provided and use the information to create a plan for how to best communicate and engage with you, your neighbours, and local businesses. These will be reflected in the fall engagement later this year.
Over the next few weeks utility work (including restoring the ground) will be completed and through the summer you will see design staff reviewing the alleys.
