The City of Edmonton will be hosting a public drop-in information and input session on November 8, 2018 from 5:30-8PM at Richard Secord School (4025 117 St NW) in regards to the Royal Gardens Neighbourhood Renewal Plan. City staff will be on-hand to address any questions or concerns about the project, and members of the public will have the opportunity to weigh in on the future of the Royal Gardens neighbourhood.

The Royal Gardens redevelopment plan consists of a series of design proposals aimed at upgrading residential streets, improving the existing bike lane network, park and green space enhancements, improved pathways and sidewalks, and a Royal Gardens Park Community Garden project.

Major arteries, such as 114 St NW (above), could be reconfigured to allow a mix of uses, with the addition of shared and pedestrian-only pathways on either side of the street. Street parking and travel lanes could also be re-thought, depending on the outcome of public input sessions such as the upcoming event. Possible enhancements to nearby Petrolia Mall will also be a topic of discussion.
