The April Bulletin contains important project and contact information for residents and property owners, as well as a map of Newton which identifies the scope of work planned for 2019. The Prime Contractor working for the City will deliver bulletins outlining the estimated start/finish dates of each portion of the project, along with their contact information.

Construction on the Montrose-Newton shared-use path is also scheduled for 2019. The What We Heard document developed during planning and design summarizes the public engagement and decision-making process for this project.
The City thanks residents and property owners for their patience as we make these improvements.

About the Program
Newton, south of 123 Avenue, has been chosen for reconstruction beginning in spring 2018.
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 this scope of work.
It also includes the opportunity for 2 local improvements, sidewalk renewal and decorative streetlights.
The area north of 123 Avenue was developed later than the rest of the neighbourhood and the roads, curb and gutter and sidewalks are in better condition than the rest of the neighbourhood. As such, a full reconstruction is not necessary at this stage. In 2014, a neighbourhood overlay project was completed on 123 Avenue and to the north, in which the roads were repaved and the sidewalks treated to eliminate safety hazards.
