Survey seeks feedback on Parksville’s Memorial Avenue streetscape improvements

Public invited to join public engagement events

A short survey collecting input on Parksville’s Memorial Avenue streetscape and utility upgrades project will be available until July 3 at www.survey.memorialave.ca.

The online survey will collect public input on community values, how people use Memorial Avenue and opportunities for the future street design. Hard copies of the survey are available from city hall.

Resident input from the survey and feedback collected at in-person engagement sessions such as the Memories on Memorial Walkshops, along with technical analysis will inform the design concepts for Memorial Avenue.

The underground storm, sanitary and watermains on Memorial Avenue have reached the end of their service lives and require replacement. A professional arborist recently completed a detailed assessment of the memorial trees; some are in poor condition and require rehabilitation if they are to be maintained. The Memorial Avenue streetscape and utility upgrades project kicked off last month with engagement and conceptual design now underway through fall.

The project team has created a website, www.memorialave.ca, with extensive history about Memorial Avenue, a project story map and technical information about the health of the street trees and road conditions.

Upcoming public engagement events:

As well as providing input into the online survey, we invite you to join the in-person engagement sessions listed below. Pre-registration is required for both events at www.memorialave.ca

  • Memories on Memorial Walkshops – June 22, 10:30 a.m. or 12:30 p.m.

Join one of the guided accessible tours which will share the history of the street, discuss assessment of the trees and consider possible streetscape designs. Tours begin and finish at McMillan Arts Centre.

  • Community Design Workshops – July 10, 1 p.m. or 6 p.m.

Workshop will take participants through a step-by-step process to understand the opportunities and constraints, refine design ideas and develop preferred streetscape design options.
