City Centre streetscape design option approved for 2022
A median option that will incorporate both angle and parallel parking has been approved for the revitalization of McLeod Avenue and Main Street as part of the City Centre Area Redevelopment Plan.
The overall redevelopment plan for the City Centre is focused on revitalizing the area to create a vibrant, welcoming space and improved experience for those who walk, bike, drive or use transit to access the area.
City Council had previously approved moving forward with a design concept featuring a median with trees.
Final median design options were presented to City Council during an August 23 meeting. The decision was made to proceed with development of a detailed design that will include:
- Angle parking only on the west side of Main Street.
- Parallel parking only on the east side of Main Street.
- A wider pedestrian walkway at 2.5 m on the east side, which will include trees and planters (with possible seating).
- A narrower pedestrian walkway on west side at 1.5 m.
Construction work is scheduled to start in the spring of 2022.
Updates regarding construction and related impacts will be provided once the McLeod Avenue and Main Street revitalization project begins next year.
