The City of Edmonton is investing $15 million in 18 communities through its Great Neighbourhoods Capital Program.
The city is spending $11.6 million on revitalization of the Britannia/Youngstown; Canora; Glenwood; West Jasper Place neighbourhoods. Improvements include new curbs, gutters, side streets and crossings on Stony Plain Road from 149 Street to 158 Street.
Other work currently underway includes $250,000 on improvements to Alberta Avenue, including sidewalk widening, new street furniture and narrowing of neighbourhood entrances, and $1 million on renovating five downtown blocks of 108 Street between 99 Avenue and 104 Avenue.
"This year, the Great Neighbourhoods Capital Program has continued to improve the livability and vibrancy of Edmonton's neighbourhoods. By creating new share-use pathways, sidewalk connections, streetscaping and improved green spaces, our communities are becoming better connected, safer, more attractive and sustainable," Edmonton city councillor Andrew Knack said.
