Neighbourhood and Alley Renewal is coming to Meyokumin and planning is underway!

Community Feedback on Final Design - October 2023

Thank you to everyone who engaged with the Project Team during the Community Feedback on Final Design stage of Meyokumin Neighbourhood and Alley Renewal. The online survey closed on October 26, but you can still review the final design:

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.

The updated final design will include any adjustments that were made following the Community Feedback on Final Design stage. We will be reaching out to you again in spring 2024 as we enter the Preparing for Construction stage of Neighbourhood and Alley Renewal. 

The What We Heard report from the previous stage Community Feedback on Draft Design is also now available. 

Local Improvements

Decorative Street Blades

As part of the Meyokumin Neighbourhood Renewal, the community has the option to receive decorative street blades throughout the neighbourhood at no additional cost to property owners.

About the Project 

Neighbourhood Renewal 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, roll, drive and gather in the neighbourhood, and how they enjoy City-owned parks and open spaces are also explored.

Alley Renewal will be included as part of the neighbourhood reconstruction. Alley Renewal involves alley reconstruction and repaving, improvements to surface drainage where possible, and upgrading of existing alley lighting to LED fixtures. Utility assessments and repairs, along with removals and pruning of trees and shrubs, are also completed.

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.

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 are not included in the scope of work.
