ABOUT THE PROJECT
16 Avenue N.W. has a dual nature as both a major city-wide transportation corridor and as a community Main Street that has successfully nurtured a local commercial core in Montgomery for decades.
The 16 Avenue N.W. corridor from Sarcee Trail to Crowchild Trail requires a coherent planning effort due to the widely variable nature of the corridor today, with differing road classifications, land use, posted speed limits, number of lanes, accommodation of transit and active modes, and levels of planning and construction in recent years. Provision of additional capacity and long-term build-out of the roadway to three core lanes in each direction is expected to fulfill 16 Avenue N.W.’s role as a primary transportation and goods movement corridor, and to support area growth.
The 16 Avenue N.W. Main Street streetscape design project will incorporate what is most important today and in the future about the main street experience with a focus on place making and community building and enhancement.
As there is significant overlap in the two study boundaries and timing for engagement, the two projects are being closely coordinated and aligned.
PROVIDE YOUR INPUT
Over the next year and a half we will be working with stakeholders and the public to gather feedback to develop design concepts, success criteria and recommended plans for the 16 Avenue N.W. corridor and main street study areas. We will do this in three phases:
- Discover Phase: Discover opportunities, challenges, priorities and success criteria with stakeholders and the public
- Explore Phase: Explore design concepts and evaluation results with stakeholders and the public
- Reveal Phase: Present preferred plans to stakeholders and the public
Add your ideas to improve 16 Avenue N.W. between Sarcee Trail and Crowchild Trail below.
Between 2014-19 The City worked with the communities along the 16 Avenue N.W. corridor on several projects. Organized by project principle area below are some of the key ideas and concerns we heard during those engagements. We’d like to know if those comments still resonate today.
For each group of ideas please tell us if you agree with the ideas, disagree with the ideas, or if there are items you would modify or change. Share with us how you might change an/some of the items to better agree with them.
A What We Heard Report for the Discover Phase of engagement will be shared with the public in the summer. In Fall 2020, we will explore design concepts and success criteria with stakeholders and the public. By Spring 2021, we will share preferred plans with stakeholders and the public.
