Pleasantview has been chosen for neighbourhood renewal beginning construction in spring 2022 with anticipated completion in 2023.

Project Update - March 2021

Work is happening behind the scenes on Pleasantview’s Neighbourhood Renewal. Your Project Team is currently working on the final design for your neighbourhood and will be sharing it with you in spring 2021. Stay tuned for more information on how to review the final design and provide your feedback.

Decorative Street Lighting

Standard street lights will be replaced as part of the Neighbourhood Renewal process. However, property owners in each neighbourhood undergoing renewal have the opportunity to upgrade to their community’s choice of decorative street lights through a community-initiated local improvement process.

A committee of residents and property owners in Pleasantivew is working on selecting a decorative streetlight option to submit to the City for consideration. They will be submitting their choice to the City by June 30 and we will be sharing with you during upcoming community engagements.

About the Project

The Neighbourhood Renewal program will rehabilitate roads, replace street lights, curbs and gutters, repair sidewalks, and connect missing sidewalk links where possible. Other opportunities to improve parks and public spaces will also be explored.

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.

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.

Project History

Community Feedback on Draft Design - December 2020

Thank you to everyone who engaged with us virtually during the Community Feedback on the Draft Design stage of the project as we adjusted our engagement practices as a result of COVID-19.

The Draft Design shows how the proposed changes for walking, biking, driving and playing in Pleasantview will work together to provide the best neighbourhood experience for all users, balancing the needs of today and into the future.

The online survey and Ask A Question tool closed on December 2, 2020 and we appreciate everyone who took the time to provide their feedback. The feedback gathered, along with City policies and programs and technical requirements, will be used to develop the final design for the neighbourhood which will be shared in spring 2021.

Project Update - August 2020

Thank you to everyone who engaged with us virtually on the design options for Pleasantview (see Engagement Summary and What We Heard report).

During the online events, the project team presented design options, along with associated benefits and trade-offs, that are being considered for the neighbourhood. These include traffic calming, pedestrian sidewalks and crossings, bike facilities, and design options for parks and open spaces.

The feedback gathered through the questions asked at the events and in our Question and Answer tool, as well as through the online survey, will be used as we move toward the development of a draft design for the neighbourhood.
