A feedback session was held on Thursday, June 14, 2018 to receive input from residents, businesses and greenway users about the interim changes constructed in 2017. Over 50 participants attended the session and spoke with staff. The information boards from the session are provided below.
Feedback, insights and comments received over the past year, from the June 1st Bike to Work Week event, and June 14th session will be used to inform the ultimate design to improve the safety and comfort of the all ages and abilities cycling route along this segment of Seventh Avenue.
Information on any future engagement events about the greenway will be provided on this page.
Ultimate AAA Design for Seventh Avenue
The City is working toward creating All Ages and Abilities (AAA) cycling facilities for people to travel through a complete, connected network.
Building on the interim improvements completed in 2017 and feedback received at upcoming events, the City will be delivering an ultimate design for the Fifth Street to Eighth Street segment of the Rotary Crosstown Greenway. The design will include protected cycling facilities, intersection enhancements, and improvements for pedestrians such as plantings, benches and lighting. Construction the ultimate design would be coordinated with future utilities and road work along this segment of Seventh Avenue.
Interim Improvements (2017)
The objective of the Greenway is to enhance the walking and cycling experience for people of all ages and abilities (from children to seniors) throughout the city. The Greenway builds on the increasingly cohesive cycling network that exists within the city and the region which improves connections for recreational, educational, work and commercial purposes.
