Across Canada, there are a good number of pedestrian and cycling infrastructure improvements being made right now. A large chunk of this is thanks to the government of Alberta, which put its money where its mouth is.
“The province continues to be a leader in these areas,” reads a news release from the Edmonton area District Health Unit (DHU). “It is important for the community that Edmonton is a safe place for everyone to live, work and play.”
The public is invited to its next gathering, the “The Fixer” project, which will showcase projects to repair and improve infrastructure at at St. Mary’s Community Hall, 2187 St. Mary’s Line, Edmonton, AB. The session will take place on August 1 at 10 a.m.
Shortly after, on August 2, a “World Tallgrass Transformation Panel discussion will be held at the Edmonton Recreation Complex, 6565 90th Avenue, Edmonton, AB. World Tallgrass transformational innovators will share their contributions to the Alberta Tallgrass Heartland Vision and how they were able to contribute to the vision.”
The panelists have worked together to enhance and redesign greenery, habitats, construction practices and transportation outcomes along the Red Deer Panhandle. The panels also serve as reflections for the public to share ideas and views for communities and land use planning.
