EDMONTON — The City of Edmonton is actively seeking input from residents on several key initiatives aimed at neighbourhood development, business improvement and traffic safety.
For neighbourhood development, residents are invited to provide feedback on the Overlanders/Homesteader Neighbourhood Renewal. This involves reviewing the draft design for these areas and participating in a survey available until Dec. 13 at the city’s website. Additionally, the city is considering a rezoning proposal for Brentwood Homes at 13503 and 13743 115 Avenue.
The proposed change would allow the development of multiple buildings with varying heights, up to a maximum of 10 storeys, and include up to 750 residential units with some commercial opportunities. Feedback on this rezoning can be provided until Dec. 17.
In the realm of business and community enhancement, Edmontonians have the opportunity to contribute to the Business Improvement Area (BIA) initiative through two separate surveys available until Dec. 12. One survey targets business patrons, gauging their perceptions of safety and business diversity within the BIAs. The other is directed at business owners, seeking their views on similar topics within the BIA zones.
Finally, under the city’s Vision Zero initiative, which aims to eliminate traffic fatalities and serious injuries, Edmontonians are encouraged to share their insights on the new project area as part of the Towards 40 Program. This project focuses on 40 Street (between Hermitage Road and South of 131 Avenue) and Hermitage Road (between 50 Street and Hyndman Crescent), aiming to promote safe driving habits and compliance with speed limits through adaptable safety measures. The survey for this project is open until Dec. 13.
