Neighbourhood renewal construction is tentatively scheduled to start the week of June 3, 2019 in Inglewood. Before construction starts in front of your property, you will receive a bulletin outlining the estimated start/finish dates along with contact information. The duration of construction in front of your house may be up to 12 weeks (weather dependent). See the Construction Bulletin for more details or subscribe to the City of Edmonton’s Inglewood Neighbourhood Renewal Newsletter.
Neighbourhood renewal construction consists of removal and replacement of public sidewalk, curb and gutter, and street lighting, as well as reconstruction and paving of the road. Inglewood’s neighbourhood renewal is anticipated to take three years.
Further contact from the City of Edmonton directly to residents will occur in the coming months.
In addition to this construction, EPCOR Water will also be upgrading distribution systems throughout the City. Upgrades include small-scale projects such as hydrant relocations, cathodic protection and valve installations, as well as large-scale projects such as full water main replacements.
Construction will run from the end of April to October. Individual projects will take 2-8 weeks to complete. Prior to construction, properties directly impacted will receive a notification letter with contact information for EPCOR and the on-site contractor. The letter will also contain additional information about the project schedule and duration, temporary water supplies, garbage pick-up and safety around the construction site. Notice of any planned interruptions to water service will also be provided to affected customers at least 24 hours in advance.
Construction is beginning in Inglewood this summer to replace the roads, sidewalks, curbs, and streetlights. The street lights will get new street name blades, and the neighborhood residents can participate in choosing the design. Please take our SURVEY and pick your favorite designs!
We have learned that neighbourhood renewal construction will be staged over three years, from 2019 to 2021. Primary upgrades to neighbourhood infrastructure include: local and collector roads, sidewalks, sidewalk connections, curb ramps, curbs, gutters, and street lights.
On Tuesday, October 2 from 5:00 – 8:30 p.m. Building Great Neighbourhoods is hosting a drop-in engagement event at the Winnifred Stewart Association (11130 131 Street NW) for projects that impact Inglewood or the surrounding area. In addition to the Inglewood Neighbourhood Renewal project, there will also be a number of other project teams in attendance to share information or seek input.
For the Neighbourhood Renewal project, this event will be an opportunity for the public to explore and provide feedback on the draft concepts for the neighbourhood, including:
walkways and connectivity
bike routes and infrastructure
traffic calming measures
ideas to enhance public parks and green spaces
opportunities to reflect Inglewood’s identity and character
We will also be looking to understand the community’s priorities for the neighbourhood. Collectively, this information will help us refine the concepts and inform the preliminary designs, which will also be shared with the public for feedback later in the project.
As with our past Inglewood events, we have worked with other projects that impact the neighbourhood to present a coordinated engagement opportunity for the public to share their feedback as conveniently as possible:
The Neighbourhood Revitalization project team will be present to share information about when they will begin working in Inglewood and to hear the public’s thoughts on how Revitalization can support them in making their neighbourhood more safe, connected, active and vibrant through a focus on the social elements of the area
The 124 Street project team will be present to learn from the public about the challenges and opportunities on the street, to inform its future renewal (from 111 Ave to 118 Ave)
The Yellowhead Trail Freeway Conversion project team will be present to seek input that will help inform design considerations for various projects within the Yellowhead Trail Freeway Conversion Program, as well as the development of future communications and engagement plans
