Neighbourhood Streets - Current projects
To test the new Neighbourhood Streets policy, The City is onboarding a variety of projects to determine how the policy works in different applications. Each project and scope will have an individual timeline for engagement, implementation and evaluation on short-term and long-term plans to support the needs of the community.
Testing the pilot policy on projects allows us to:
- Learn the best approach to collaborate for successful neighbourhood streets through conversations and installations
- Provide inclusive engagement to determine community needs and shared decision making
- Test how different tools can be applied by both citizens and The City to address community needs
- Improve how we intake and prioritize future projects

What are the different scales of projects this policy is being tested on?
In partnership with multi-community planning activities in the North Hill, Heritage, and Westbrook planning areas, we will explore safety and liveability issues with area residents to identify short-term actions and longer-term strategies to address existing and emerging concerns.
We will work with several communities that are not facing significant redevelopment pressure to develop community level plans including short-term actions at high-priority locations and longer-term strategies to improve safety and liveability over time.
Using quick action tools, we will test solutions for local issues (at a corner or along a particular street) that will not broadly impact a community.
