Decorative Street Light Update - December 2022

In October 2022, a decorative street lighting Expression of Interest package was sent to all registered property owners in the neighborhood. More than 50%+1 of the received responses from both areas were not in support (“no”), so the decorative street light Local Improvement will not be proceeding in either area. Street lights will be replaced as part of the Ottewell Neighbourhood Renewal with standard galvanized poles and energy-efficient LED lights. Ottewell is split into two areas which will each receive unique street light designs based on the existing style of light. See examples and map below.

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.  

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 and alleys are not included in the scope of work.
