The Concept phase is when we need to hear from you the most! We need your help to co-create a vision and guiding principles, explore opportunities, and explore options and tradeoffs. These are the most important pieces for your Neighbourhood and Alley Renewal and will be used to create a draft design to best meet your neighbourhood needs.
Rossdale has been chosen for Neighbourhood Renewal. The planning and design is currently underway with construction anticipated to start in 2026.
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.
At the beginning of the project, the Project Team will work with the community to create a project Vision and Guiding Principles. People who live, work and play in Rossdale will be asked for regular feedback on the different stages of the project.
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.
Working together to make the most of your neighborhood
This is your city and your neighbourhood. We want to understand how you experience your neighbourhood and ask for your input on what we might do to make it better. We will engage and work with you on the renewal of roads, sidewalks, street lights and park spaces and promote other community opportunities to enhance how people live and interact in your neighbourhood. We commit to being open and transparent about how your input is used. Let’s make the most out of your neighbourhood.
