Inglewood is in the final year of Neighbourhood Renewal construction! If you live within the Phase 3 area, you’ve likely already received a pamphlet in the mail from the City about the schedule, access impacts, and more! In case you missed it, construction is tentatively scheduled to start this coming week, May 3.
For a breakdown of the planned projects by number in the neighbourhood, please see the Project Map (shown above).
The removal and replacement of public sidewalks, curbs and gutters and roadways is complete in projects 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15. Not all the sod in projects 13, 14 and 15 was installed so we will be returning in early spring to finish the landscaping.
The outstanding landscaping from 2019 is complete (projects 10, 11 and 12). Street lighting in projects 12, 13, 14, and 15 is ongoing and includes running new conduit, drilling new pole bases, then installing new poles and re-energizing the lights. EPCOR is energizing the new poles and completing their quality control checks while removing the old pole bases; this work will continue through 2021.
Neighbourhood renewal work will resume in Inglewood in May 2021, weather pending. Prior to work resuming, construction notifications will be delivered to impacted residences. We are pleased to report that, with the completion of 2020 work, Inglewood remains on schedule with a planned completion date of November 2021.
The City of Edmonton is proposing the development of a 5-storey (30 unit) supportive housing development in Inglewood at the location of 12312 112 Avenue. This development will provide people who have experienced homeless with the support, safety, and stability they need to lead healthy and connected lives through on-site staff and wraparound services.
The City wants to hear from you! They are planning a series of community engagement opportunities over the course of this summer to solicit community feedback on the project. These opportunities will include online surveys, digital community round tables, and larger format public engagement sessions.
