About this project

As part of its commitment to providing safe, convenient and accessible mobility choices for all residents, City Council has directed staff to develop a “Neighbourhood Connectivity Plan” for the Northridge area. The plan will identify where new sidewalks can provide the most value.

During the latter half of June and into July, City staff consulted with your community to get input to help shape your neighbourhood's plan. Thank you to everyone who provided feedback in person, by email, by phone, or through the website.

Based on feedback from residents, and data and information from community partners, the project team has developed recommendations for consideration regarding where sidewalks and connectivity should be prioritized in your neighbourhood. To preview the NCP recommendations for Northridge, see below for a map and supporting information.

Following Civic Works Committee, Council met on November 28 to give final direction on the staff recommendations. Four of the 11 recommended streets were approved to receive new sidewalks: 

  • Tennent Avenue
  • Barrymont Avenue

  • Tweed Crescent 

When it’s time to reconstruct any of these four streets where sidewalks have been approved, staff will then return to consult with those residents, with a focus on finding the best fit for the street and helping residents understand the design considerations available to maximize the benefits and mitigate impacts of adding a new sidewalk.

Please contact the NCP team if you have any questions about next steps.
