The City will begin a 3 year program to completely rebuild the streets and sidewalks of Inglewood beginning in 2019. One part of this program is the option to include decorative streetlights instead of the standard galvanized aluminum poles. The Community League polled residents for their wishes. The overwhelming majority wanted to have new light poles that matched the type chosen by the Westmount neighbourhood. The city will conduct a vote of property owners in September to determine if the entire neighbourhood is in favour of this upgrade. For the upgrade to be approved, owners of over 881 properties in Inglewood–more than 50% of all property owners—must agree to the upgrade.
If you are a property owner in Inglewood, watch for your letter from the city asking for your vote. The Community League is preparing to go door-to-door throughout the neighbourhood to answer any questions, encourage people to vote yes, and collect people’s ballots to save you the cost of postage.
