Neighbourhood reconstruction is a type of neighbourhood renewal that involves road reconstruction and repaving, as well as replacement of streetlights and reconstruction of sidewalks, curb and gutter. Alley renewal is not part of neighbourhood reconstruction.
Property owners will have the opportunity to make choices about what they will pay for during neighbourhood reconstruction via local improvements of sidewalks and decorative streetlights.
Complete Streets Pilot Program
Complete Streets represents a change in roadway design philosophy. Streets will be designed to reflect the surrounding area's characteristics and the needs of all the users in the community. Westmount has been chosen as a Complete Streets Pilot Project. Residents and property owners will have the opportunity to use the Complete Streets Guidelines to have informed discussion about roadway design and to look at new or different transportation infrastructure to reflect the local character of the community.
