Key Themes

We received 300+ submissions from our first round of engagement covering a wide number of issues and ideas. We’re asking for your input on the top five themes outlined below, if any themes should be changed or added, and what kind of specific actions would you like to see taken to address them. Click on the links below to learn more about each theme and to share your feedback!

A Changing Kirkendall

A number of people expressed worry about how development projects and rent increases are impacting the neighbourhood. The changing nature of businesses on Locke St is also a concern.

HAAA, Parks and Greenspace

People want to see the HAAA grounds improved upon with community input. There’s also a high priority on increasing the number of trees and protecting existing greenspaces and trails.

Pedestrian & Cyclist Safety

Speeding cars, traffic calming, bike lanes and pedestrian safety are issues expressed repeatedly.

Address Crime

There was a lot of apprehension about car break-ins and theft from private property. One solution was introducing a “neighbourhood watch” program.

Community Connections

People want more opportunities to celebrate their community and connect with each other. Some want a large Locke St type-festival, and others want small-scale block parties and other events, such as more movie nights and music in the park.
