About the Presentation

The City of Edmonton started renewing neighbourhoods in 1995, and since has established a long-term Neighbourhood Renewal Program. The Program has gone from a “like for like” replacement of transportation infrastructure to expand and look at neighbourhoods more broadly. As the transportation infrastructure is being completely removed and replaced, this provides the opportunity to add work related to other initiatives and programs including safe mobility, open space and park developments, LID, improvements to commercial properties and active transportation.
