ABOUT THE PROJECT
The City created This is my neighbourhood to fully engage with community residents to create clear, compelling community visions that will help guide the delivery of City programs, services and small-scale infrastructure improvements within participating neighbourhoods. This is my neighbourhood gives residents a voice and encourages them to take an active role in shaping the future of their neighbourhood.
This is my neighbourhood began in 2015 with a group of 14 inaugural communities. As part of the This is my neighbourhood program, The City partnered with the first group of neighbourhoods to deliver more than 100 programs, services and small-scale improvement projects that residents requested. Overall, This is my neighbourhood will take place in 28 neighbourhoods over four years from 2015 to 2018.
Thank you to everyone who participated and shared ideas with us, the public engagement is now closed. This the report of What We Heard in Glendale.
The neighbourhood vision for Glendale was determined by residents to be: Glendale values safe streets and a sense of security, well-maintained landscaping, community-specific installations, being family-friendly, and having a range of amenities, programs and spaces in the neighbourhood.
INTIATIVES IN PROGRESS
Below is a list of projects that residents mentioned to us, some are currently underway and fit within your neighbourhood vision some are not possible for The City to do as part of this program and we want to tell you why.
Low maintenance botanical gardens in traffic circles - Currently in the design and development stage. Scheduled to be installed Spring/Summer 2018.
Additional bike paths -We heard that residents would like to see bike paths in the community extended. Pathway and Bikeway MapThis mapping system shows real time updates on capital and operational work on our pathways. The requested section of pathway within your community will be added to The City’s "Missing Link Wish-list". This list determines the value of a potential pathways through the area for formalization, based on connectivity, potential frequency of use, value to the community and other factors.

After working with residents and City staff to come up with ideas for possible initiatives, we asked for your input on which of the following initiatives would have the most impact on achieving the neighbourhood vision. This engagement was open for input in March 2018.
From July 10 to October 31 we asked residents in Glendale: what would make Glendale a better place to live, work and play. They were then asked to choose their top three vision words from a list of word, or add their own, and explain why they chose that word.
The full report of what we heard during this engagement can be found here.
Based on all the feedback, three vision statements were created for Glendale and we asked you to tell us which vision statement you like best. See below for results.
This vision will be used in the next step of the engagement when we work with you to come up with initiatives.
