Phase 2 Engagement
Update May 20, 2022: Thank you for your interest in the Upper Levels Greenway. The engagement period has now closed. We are reviewing all input received to help us determine a preferred route and develop a conceptual design.
Earlier this year, we reached out to the community about our plans to develop a new greenway in the City, north of Highway 1. During the first phase of engagement, we asked about your experience in the Westview and Tempe neighbourhoods to help us understand what’s important to you, learn about any concerns you may have, and identify unique opportunities for this area. Learn more in the Phase 1 Engagement Summary.
We heard from over 900 survey respondents, reflecting a diverse range of community members and groups. You told us that the most important priorities for a preferred greenway route are:
Safety – it feels safe and minimizes risk from vehicle traffic for people of all ages and abilities.
Experience – it provides a pleasant and comfortable experience for recreation and/or getting around.
Connection – it connects to other greenways, routes and places I want to go.
Features – it provides opportunities to emphasize and incorporate natural features and community amenities.
We also heard concerns around impacts to parking, privacy, and potential for noise. These impacts have been taken into consideration along with any known technical constraints to help us develop route options for the Upper Levels Greenway.
The Route Options
Based on community feedback received during the first phase of engagement, we’ve developed three route options for the Upper Levels Greenway, shown below. Each option travels through four different zones that have unique characteristics to consider. This means the design of the greenway may look different depending on which zone it's travelling through. Learn more about the neighbourhood zones.
How You Can Get Involved
We’d like your input on how well each of the route options reflect the priorities and feedback received during the first phase of engagement. Your feedback will be used to help us select a final preferred route for the greenway.
