    I live on the south side of 81 avenue and will be losing parking in front of my house. Is it possible to have a widened sidewalk (like in Belgravia along 76 avenue) on the south side instead of removing parking? Has any consideration been given to placing car ports between the Elm trees on the south side of 81 avenue? I'd like to see an improvement that won't entirely eliminate parking on the south side of 81 avenue. Don't have a problem with biking lane so long as it doesn't completely eliminate parking on south side of 81 avenue.

    Building Great Neighbourhoods: Garneau - Community Feedback on Draft Design Asked about 1 month ago

    Thank you for your suggestion of a widened sidewalk. We have heard that from your neighbours as well. We have also heard that people who bike and walk prefer separate spaces which the painted bike lane allows for. The project team is reviewing all feedback as well as technical considerations and city policies and will make a decision to balance the needs for all area users. We will also review a bike activated signal at this location instead of push buttons to cross the street.  

    Parking bays are not being considered for 80 or 81 Avenue. Visitors and residents without on site parking may need to look for available parking on streets close to 80 and 81 Avenue if all the on-street parking on those streets is occupied. If you require accessible parking, please refer to the City webpage on how to apply for a new accessible parking stall.

    The 110 st bike/pedestrian corridor must be both the safest and fastest way to bike/walk from 76 Ave to Sask Drive for it to be efficacious. Presently, to cross 82 ave on 110 st, one must touch a possibly COVID-ridden beg button and wait what feels like an eternity to cross. Does the plan ensure that the rights-of-way are set up such that 110 st, and not 109 st, is the fastest bike route from 76 ave to Sask Drive? Also, will there be beg buttons?

    bluehornets Asked about 1 month ago

    Thank you for your question. Signals and traffic signage will be reviewed once we have confirmed the final design. We look to give bikes the right of way at intersections and will explore how that works with the network of traffic signals along 82 Avenue. We will also review to see if there should be a bike activated signal at this location instead of push buttons to cross the street.

    What is a rail trail connection?

    BGN Garneau Asked 10 days ago

    Thank you for your question. The "Rail Trail" is a proposed shared-use path that runs along the High Level Streetcar line within the old Canadian Pacific Railway trackage. The shared-use path will provide a connection for people who walk and bike from 109 Street to Gateway Boulevard. The section from 106 Street to Gateway Boulevard has been constructed recently in coordination with Strathcona’s neighbourhood renewal.

    any plans for the small "park" at 112 and University Ave SE corner

    BGN Garneau Asked 10 days ago

    Thank you for your question. There are no plans for the park in the south east corner of 112 Street and University Avenue at this time. If there are particular improvements you would like to see, please connect with your Neighbourhood Resource Coordinator.

    How are the contractor laydown areas determined and where would they be? Do you know what areas will be started first, North, Middle or South?

    BGN Garneau Asked 10 days ago

    Thank you for your question. The decision as to where construction will start (north, middle or south) has not yet been made. Once decided, City owned lands closest to the area of construction are evaluated for suitability for a contractor laydown area.

    What is the allowance for parking per residence? How is the reduction in parking incorporated into development permits? There seem to be many requests to increase density in this area, but our parking reductions should lead to no more density in this area.

    BGN Garneau Asked 10 days ago

    Thank you for your question. The city wide residential parking program is under review and the number of permits for each property owner is under review. As decisions are made the information will be shared out with neighbourhoods that have a residential parking program such as Garneau.

    Edmonton City Council has recently voted to remove minimum parking requirements from Edmonton’s Zoning Bylaw. Starting July 2, 2020, developers, homeowners and businesses will be able to decide how much on-site parking to provide on their properties based on their particular operations, activities or lifestyle.

    how will the Rail Trail work from 108A to 109 street? How will it cross and go along back alleys? i.e. will there be lanes? I really like the idea of the trail.

    BGN Garneau Asked 10 days ago

    Thank you for your questions. Due to the limited space available, the alley from 109 Street to west of 108A Street will be converted to a shared roadway where people who bike, walk and drive all share the same space. 

    The idea of a shared road allows for a balance between pedestrians, cars and bikes, where no one has priority and each individual is responsible, which allows for a more instinctual interaction which promotes all users to participate safely.

    Is it possible to enhance or raise the crosswalk at 88 Ave and 109 street to slow the traffic accessing 88 ave ?

    BGN Garneau Asked 10 days ago

    Thank you for your question. Traffic accessing 88 Avenue will be slowed with the roadway narrowing. The team will review an enhanced crosswalk at this intersection to further bring visibility to people crossing the road.

    I assume it has been considered, but are there snow clearing concerns to adding chicanes?

    BGN Garneau Asked 10 days ago

    Thank you for your question. Chicanes already exist between 109 Street and 110 Street on 84 Avenue, and are proposed to be rebuilt. The project team works with City Operations and Maintenance to address snow clearing concerns.

    I have one question. Regarding the bike path that will run from the train across to 109th street, will it be set up on the north side or south side of the alley that runs on the south side of Strathcona House?
