Neighbourhood Reconstruction

Woodcroft Community Neighbourhood Renewal Warranty Work

The renewal work done in 2012 has a warranty to 2014, and the 2013 work has a warranty to 2015.  If there are deficiencies that need to be fixed, it is preferable that they be done under warranty as the cost of these repairs are funded by "hold-back" funds.

 

If residents find deficiencies such as cracks in sidewalks, streets, etc. we are to contact Construction Project Manager, Adnan Akram.  His contact information is as follows:

 

Adnan Akram, P.Eng.

Cell: (780) 619-0198

To ensure deficiencies are properly documented, please provide Mr. Akram with a detailed description of the problem, the location, and your contact information.  Supplying photos of the deficiencies, when possible, will also assist him with his documentation of required repairs. 

For street lighting concerns, please contact Mike Rowel, City street lighting personal at (780-496-4259).

 

Note:  There was insufficient time last year to complete the laying of sod.  This will be completed in summer of 2014.

Decorative Lighting Update (November 11, 2010)

Next year our neighborhood is scheduled to be reconstructed, this means that the roads, sidewalks, etc…will all be totally redone.  Because of this neighborhood reconstruction, we have the opportunity to replace standard street lights with decorative street lights.  Decorative lights are the lights you often see in new neighborhoods.  This summer, residents had the chance to vote for the type of decorative lighting and the type that was chosen is a black fluted pole with a heritage arm. 

 

There is a cost to home owners for decorative lights.  The cost is based on the size of your lot and there are two payment options.  For example, if you prefer to pay a one time lump sum, the cost is $36.85 per metre. So if you have a 15 metre lot (50 feet), the cost would be $552.75.  The second option is to pay annually over 15 years with your taxes.  The cost for this is $3.31 per metre, so for a 15 metre lot, the cost would be $49.65 per year.

 

Throughout the month of October and November Woodcroft Canvassers have been going through the neighborhood asking owners of properties to sign a City of Edmonton Expression of Interest form, which would indicate that they want decorative lights in Woodcroft.  If you have any questions, please contact Arlene at 780-481-4420.

 



Woodcroft Neighbourhood Renewal Information Session

Date:

Wednesday, November 23, 2011

Time:

6:30 - 8:30 PM

Location:   

Woodcroft Elementary School

13750 Woodcroft Avenue

   

(Formal Presentation to Start at 7:00 PM)

As part of the 2012/2013 Construction Program, the Transportation Services Department has proposed that Woodcroft undergo neighbourhood renewal.

Proposed construction activities in Woodcroft include:

  • Reclamation of the roadway,
  • an upgrade to street lighting,
  • and reconstruction of  sidewalks, curbs, and gutters.

Alley renewal is not part of this project. As part of the renewal project, the City is including reconstruction of existing sidewalks through a 50/50 property owner/City cost share Local Improvement tax levy.

The public is invited to an information session where City staff will provide information and answer questions on the proposed construction, Local Improvement process and project timelines.

If you have any questions regarding this project, please contact Jen Nicholls at 780-944-5553 Monday - Friday, between 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., or jen.nicholls@edmonton.ca
