Feedback wanted on the Lakeshore Road Reconstruction and Streetscape Project

Between December 5 and 23 tell us what you think about...

Traditional streetscape furniture pieces

After extensive public consultation, Council approved a traditional theme for the downtown streetscape design in October 2016. Now we need your help choosing the actual pieces. We will have two traditional options for each piece of streetscape furniture — bike rings, bollards, streetlight poles and benches — to show you so you can tell us which pieces you like best.

Lighting — Light colour temperature

There are two types of LED fixtures — 3000K and 4000K — that can be used in the new streetlight poles. Each provides the same brightness, but with differing light colour (also known as light colour temperature). Compare the two and then tell us which one you prefer.

Railing at the Lakeshore Road Bridge

The town will be rehabilitating the Lakeshore Road Bridge at Sixteen Mile Creek starting in early 2017. We want you to review the three bridge railing options and tell us which one you like best.

Flexible/curbless streets

We are also exploring the use of a flexible (curbless) design of the Lakeshore Road East configuration. Learn more about the pros and cons of this design and provide us with your feedback.

How can you share your comments?

See for yourself — December 5 to 23

Two traditional furniture samples of the bench, bike ring and bollard will be on display for viewing in Towne Square. Also, the two types of LED bulbs will be installed in select light poles along Lakeshore Road between Navy Street and Thomas Street so you can see the difference. Check them out, then go online, or come to our open house to tell us what you think.

Go online — December 5 to 23
