Pleasantview Neighbourhood Renewal

The Pleasantview Options and Tradeooffs engagement is now closed. You can review the webinars and questions answered by the Pleasantview project team below. Please send any additional questions by email to the project manager at chris.mcmorran@edmonton.ca.

This is a map showing the Pleasantview neighbourhood boundary, all the streets and avenues in Pleasantview, and it highlights the locations within the neighbourhood where design options are proposed.

We are currently looking for your input on the design options developed for Pleasantview’s Neighbourhood Renewal. Please review the design options, learn about the benefits and tradeoffs of each, and provide your feedback through our two surveys until July 30, 2020. You can also ask us questions using the Ask a Question tool below.

The design options show how improvements can address traffic, driving and pedestrian crossing concerns in Pleasantview while also indicating what tradeoffs may be required for each.

We have separated the design options into two sections for easier review:

  • Driving and Street Crossings
  • Biking and Walking Connections and Parks

1. DRIVING AND STREET CROSSINGS
View the Driving and Street Crossings options and tradeoffs and tell us what you think on our Driving and Street Crossings survey:



You can also review the first online event recorded on June 29, 2020 here:


2. BIKING AND WALKING CONNECTIONS AND PARKS AND OPEN SPACES

View the Biking and Walking Connections, and Parks design options and tradeoffs and tell us what you think on our Biking and Walking Connections, and Parks survey.

    How come renters (even long term renters) have an equal say in what happens in my neighbourhood when they can come and go as they like and dont have to pay for any of the changes proposed?

    LB Asked about 1 month ago

    Thank you for your question. As part of the Pleasantview Neighbourhood Renewal Project, we want to understand how all residents experience the neighbourhood and gather input on what we might do to make it better. By inviting input from all residents, we look to gain an understanding of what’s needed and valued in the neighbourhood. Property owners, residents and visitors to the neighbourhood are best able to share perspectives and local knowledge on how people live and move within the neighbourhood. 

     Both owners and renters can move in and out of a neighbourhood at any time. We have heard that engaged renters who have a hand in shaping the future of the neighbourhood may elect to purchase a home in the future. Public feedback is one of the considerations when making decisions on the options. We also consider technical requirements and City policies and programs.

     In regards to funding, the Neighbourhood Renewal Program was funded through a City-wide tax. Property owners have the opportunity to participate directly in the Local Improvement decisions, and can choose to proceed with the Sidewalk Reconstruction and Decorative Street Light Local Improvements. More information on these can be found at edmonton.ca/LocalImprovements

     While renters do not directly pay taxes, they pay rent and may indirectly pay property tax. Typically rental income can contribute to the owner's mortgage, utilities, insurance, and property tax, depending on what the owner of the property sets.

    Has moving the do not enter sign on 52 ave and 107 st from the south side to the north side of the alley entrance been considered? It would likely decrease traffic down 52 ave as owners who live closer to 107 st (and not 109 st) on both 52 and 53 ave would be able to access the alley on 107 st instead of having to drive down towards 109th street to access the back alley.

    AlanaS Asked about 1 month ago

    Thank you for the question and suggestion. As part of the options currently proposed, adjusting the locations for one-way traffic has not been proposed. 

    We appreciate you sharing this feedback and suggestion and will review this possibility through the next stage of planning.

    Can we explore naturalization of some green spaces in collaboration with groups like the Edmonton Native Plant Society?

    eworman Asked about 1 month ago

    Thank you for your question. We can explore naturalization within green spaces. 

    Proposed options for parks will be shared for feedback on July 15 and include some opportunities for naturalization. We would also be happy to get your ideas for any additional locations to explore for naturalization. The survey will be available from July 15 - July 30. We would appreciate it if you shared your ideas for naturalization locations with us on the survey.

    For 107 street, you are proposing putting trees on the east side of the road if traffic calming measures are installed. Why not on the west side of road? There are utility lines on the east side and the trees will always be cut awkwardly or wrongly (to avoid utility lines), which defeats the entire purpose. We LOVE our trees in Pleasantview so let's plant them right so they have a long life span and can grow properly, with a beautiful canopy.

    Kimlee Asked about 2 months ago

    Thank you for your question and comment. Trees were not proposed on the west side of the street as there are underground utilities as well as existing mature City trees, limiting the amount of space available for new tree planting on the west side of 107 Street. 

    We heard from many residents that existing and new trees were important. We will review this location further through the next stage of planning to see what might be possible. Certain species of trees may be selected that can flourish in spaces where overhead height restrictions may exist that will still add beauty to the neighbourhood.

    What about traffic measures at 57 avenue and 107 street (that is where speeding happens as well)

    Heather K Asked about 2 months ago

    Thank you for your question. The options proposed include narrowing 107 Street in the section where it’s currently wider (north of 58 Avenue is currently wider than south of it). By narrowing the roadway here and/or adding a raised crosswalk at 58 Avenue, it’s expected that it will slow traffic south along 107 Street as well. 

    However, we’re looking for feedback on the options proposed, including whether more should be done to slow traffic and reduce shortcutting in particular locations. We appreciate you sharing this suggestion and will review this possibility through the next stage of planning.
