Sidewalk Improvement Fees:
The Board received a couple of inquiries regarding the sidewalk improvement fees. I was able to touch base with a couple of the project managers overseeing the Pleasantview Neighborhood Renewal project and was provided with the following information:
If residents are opposed to paying their portion of the neighbourhood renewal improvement fee, is there any other appeal process other than what is outlined in the information package they received with their Local Improvement Notice?
Response: No, that is correct. If a resident is not in favour of sidewalk reconstruction they may file a petition against the improvement as outlined in the information package they received in the mail with their improvement notice.
There are a number of new builds in the area and folks are wondering if consideration will be given to leaving recently replaced driveway/crossings as is? And if so:
-Do residents have to make a formal request to have their property reviewed? and,
- If it is determined a portion or all of the driveway access can remain, will their improvement fee be revised?.
Response (as per email ):
..In the spring detailed design walks are completed to verify the proposed design created by the engineering consultant. During the detailed design walks, the designer confirms catch basin elevations, slopes on the boulevard, existing grades on lots, pavement structures, longitudinal drainage on the city sidewalk, grades on driveways/crossings and private & boulevard connectors. The designer has to ensure the complete streets guidelines are being met when they are designing each street and avenue. There are other requirements that need to be met by Epcor drainage and other utility companies during the design and construction of the neighbourhood as well.
1.) Each street/avenue will be reviewed in the spring/summer. Residents do not need to contact us.
2.) No, the improvement fee is only for the sidewalks. Driveways/crossings are not charged back to the residents.
Note: I was also verbally advised that residents will know ahead of time whether or not newer driveway crossings will need to be replaced to meet the above construction guidelines.
Have a great day all,

New Local Opportunities
How are your New Year’s health and wellness resolutions going? Not too well? Mine, too. There is no need for concern, there is no need to wait until January 1st, it’s never too late to start again. Spring is just around the corner and this is the perfect time to recommit to a healthier lifestyle.
Our crews are working 24/7 to respond to catch basin ponding requests. Catch basins are the drains in your neighbourhood that allow water to drain into the storm water system. Thank you to the residents who are submitting those catch basin requests through 311. There are over 63,000 catch basins across the city, so knowing where these issues are helps us get to them in a timely manner.
