The City is reimagining Prince Albert downtown through a streetscape design project and the input of the public is needed. In the near future the City will be digging up Central Avenue to replace aging pipes that are 110 years old. The dig will require the replacement of all curbs, sidewalks and streets. Before rebuilding, the City will be establishing a streetscape design plan for Central Avenue and the downtown.
“This is a once in a generation opportunity to rebuild central avenue and we want to be sure we are giving full consideration to all the options that exist for modern streetscape design,” said Lars Ketilson, Planning Manager with the City of Prince Albert. “The role of downtowns have changed and there are many aspects of design that can contribute to revitalization efforts.”
The City is looking for the public to consider what they want a future downtown to look like. The public should be prepared to offer suggestions from other communities they’ve seen online or that they have visited and characteristics of Central Avenue (past or present) that they would like to see more of. The short survey will help to inform three design options that will be prepared for further consideration.
The survey is available online at www.letstalkprincealbert.ca and paper copies are available at City Hall or upon request by contacting Lars Ketilson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
