Project History

Construction Update - Spring 2020

In spring 2020, we are entering the second year of planned 2-year construction for Royal Gardens. The 2019 construction season was a success and we completed all planned construction from 43 Avenue north to 44A Avenue, west of 111 Street to west of 117 Street apart from deficiency work. Deficiencies include any areas where the new infrastructure has flaws such as cracks in new concrete. The 2020 construction seasons will include 43 Avenue south to 40 Avenue, west of 111 Street to west of 117 Street and Petrolia.

What We Heard

Draft Concepts Public Event - June 2018

The City hosted a public event on June 27 where participants were asked to provide their feedback on the initial draft concepts for new infrastructure in Royal Gardens. The concepts included open spaces, parks, traffic, connections, off-leash dog areas and bike routes in Royal Gardens, as well as improvements to the public area next to Petrolia Mall. The City also asked for comments on which improvements should be prioritized in support of the vision, core values, and community needs for Royal Gardens, as identified at previous engagement events.

Vision Confirmation and Community Options Public Event - May 2018

As a follow-up to the Community Walk and Ideas Workshop held in February, the City held a Vision Confirmation and Community Options event in May. The goal was to solicit advice on the community vision and core values as well as gather input to refine the design options and shape what will be included in the final neighbourhood renewal designs.
