Calls for public engagement: Rezoning on 99 Street, aging in Strathcona County

· The Pulse

Here are opportunities to provide feedback to municipal planners about street safety in Brander Gardens, a proposed rezoning on 99 Street, north of Whyte Avenue, and healthy aging in Strathcona County.

  • Brander Gardens Safe Routes to School — The City of Edmonton invites families with children in Brander Gardens School and Tempo School to provide feedback about recent safety upgrades made to the Brander Gardens neighbourhood. An evaluation survey will be open until April 29.
  • Strathcona Junction 99 Rezoning — The City of Edmonton wants resident feedback on an application to rezone 8904 99 Street NW, a vacant lot in the Strathcona neighbourhood, as medium-scale residential. The proposed rezoning would lower the maximum height limit and floor area ratio for the lot, plus remove any commercial requirements. The rezoning application is from Situate, an Edmonton-based firm specializing in "awesome infill projects." Residents can ask a question or share their thoughts about the application until May 5.
  • Healthy Aging Survey — Strathcona County has begun a three-phase engagement process to understand the needs and priorities of adults aged 55 or older. The results will shape a vision for healthy aging in Stathcona County and inform recommendations to council. Residents in the age range can complete a survey until May 10.
