Friday on 40th Avenue - Bike Lane Conversations

If you live in the communities of Greenfield, Royal Gardens, Aspen Gardens, Rideau Park, or Duggan, or if you use 40th Avenue and 106th Street regularly, I’ve got some wonderful news.

On Friday June 12th, the City will be hosting 40th Avenue and Area Bike Lane Conversations at the Greenfield Community League from 5-8pm. It will be an evening of fun, family friendly activities, with the added bonus of discussion and consultation around the future of 40th Avenue and fixing the current bike lanes.

The City has learned from previous experience with bike lanes, and now we are coming back to discover how the community thinks this type of infrastructure should work. From there, we can set about implementing a community driven plan for bike infrastructure that works for all stakeholders.

If you have thoughts on how transportation for both bikes and cars could be improved in the area of 40th Avenue and 106th Street, come on down! If you like hot dogs from Fat Franks, come on down! And if you like bouncy castles (and who doesn’t really), come on down!

This event will be a wonderful opportunity to share your feedback and enjoy our lovely Edmonton summer all at once. If you have any questions or concerns about the event, please feel free to get in touch with me, and I hope to see you there.

If you are unable to attend, you can email engaging40avenue@edmonton.ca to share your thoughts on current and future planning for the area. There will also be a series of focus groups and other meetings in the community to discuss options over the course of the next few months,
