Hillcrest Reconstruction Project

We are asking for input from Hillcrest residents about their ideas and aspirations for the reconstruction project, so they can be considered and addressed through the design. The draft updated concept will be prepared based on feedback from the public, the City, and the engineering design team. It will be presented for a final round of input from the public before detailed design and construction go forward.

Announcements - Project Defeated

A Bylaw on property charges for the Hillcrest Local Improvement was introduced to City Council in March 2017. Letter notifications and ballots were sent to property owners by registered mail (one ballot per property) to initiate a voting process. A Public Hearing was held prior to the May 9 conclusion of the vote, and a report summarizing the input received, along with the results of the vote, was presented to City Council on May 15. The Bylaw was defeated by City Council on May 23. View the reports:

Draft 2: Design Revisions

As follow-up to concerns raised at public meetings held in September 2016, several changes occurred to Draft 2 of the Hillcrest Preliminary Infrastructure Design Report. The City hosted an Open House on January 4, 2017 to display the design revisions and provide an additional opportunity for public feedback. View the Public Input Summary from the meeting and revised figures from Draft 2 below:

Draft 2: Public Meetings

Public meetings were held on the evenings of September 19, 20, and 21, 2016 to discuss Draft 2 of the Hillcrest Preliminary Infrastructure Design Report and next steps in the local improvement process. Approximately 90 people attended the events. The following information was discussed. 

Draft 2: Preliminary Infrastructure Design Report

The Hillcrest Local Improvement (LI) Project seeks to reconstruct the majority of water, sewer, and road infrastructure in Hillcrest, excluding the newer portion of Sunset Drive North. The City is currently in the Preliminary Design ("Pre-design") phase of the project, which will result in a conceptual report that identifies infrastructure issues, recommends improvements, and proposes phasing for construction. In April 2013, the City released Draft 1 of the report, which was discussed with residents during consultation for the Hillcrest Neighbourhood Plan. Revisions were made resulting in Draft 2 of the design, below. The design was further discussed at public meetings in September 2016.

Project Goals

The goals of the Hillcrest LI Project are to: 

  • Eliminate residential water services that bleed;
  • Renew aging water and sewer infrastructure;
  • Update road infrastructure to meet new standards for safety and universal accessibility;
  • Enhance pedestrian infrastructure, especially in areas serviced by public transit; and
  • Enhance cycling connections.

LI Questionnaire

A questionnaire was delivered to Hillcrest residents and property owners in January 2012 to help the City identify infrastructure issues and gauge preliminary preferences for infrastructure design. The questionnaire was completed by 122 people. Responses are summarized in the following documents:
