ABOUT THE PROJECT

The City is working with citizens to develop a Streetscape Master Plan for 1 Avenue N.E., including segments of Edmonton Trail and 4 Street N.E., as part of the Main Streets initiative’s investment phase. A streetscape includes all visual and functional elements of a street that collectively form its character. Some areas we are exploring include:

  • The road and its integration in the public realm
  • Mobility and transportation options (e.g. walking, cycling, transit, parking, etc.)
  • Interface between public and private space
  • Sidewalk features (e.g. street trees, patios, street furniture)
  • Crosswalks and street corner configurations
  • Laneway and park connectivity
  • Street lighting
  • Pedestrian comfort and safety features
  • Local identity, wayfinding and opportunities for public art

    We are producing a detailed plan that provides a blueprint to rebuild 1 Avenue N.E. in a way that meets the needs of current and future residents, visitors and business owners.

    Input is being collected online from May 1 - 15, 2018.

    Project Boundary / Map

    The Streetscape Master Plan will focus on 1 Avenue between 4 Street to 11 Street. In an effort to create a more integrated main street with better connections to surrounding areas, this project also incorporates segments of Edmonton Trail and 4 Street.

    Design Principles

    The design of a streetscape influences the user experience. Building on an early understanding of community values from previous related projects and the ongoing ARP work, the project team has proposed a set of inter-related principles that could guide the design for the Streetscape Master Plan.
