The City is developing a Streetscape Master Plan for 33 and 34 Avenues S.W., 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:

  • Sidewalk features (e.g. street trees, patios, street furniture)
  • Crosswalks and street corner configurations
  • Laneway and park connectivity
  • Street lighting
  • Pedestrian safety features

We are producing a detailed plan that provides a blueprint to rebuild 33 and 34 Avenues S.W. in a way that meets the needs of current and future residents, visitors and business owners.
