Council choses Option 2 for Main Street streetscape
4 Sep 2021
Spruce Grove council approved one of three streetscape options for Main Street (McLeod Ave. to Church Rd.) as part of the City Centre Area Redevelopment Plan (CCARP), presented during a regular council meeting on Aug. 23.
Council heard from Trevor Crawford, senior planner with the City of Spruce Grove, as he provided details around three options for the streetscape design. A motion was put forth that asked council to consider and approve Option 1 as the preferred Main Street streetscape for detailed design and construction in the City Centre Area Redevelopment project.
“We’ve previously been to council and discussed the cross section of McLeod Ave., so next up is Main Street. It’s integral in the design now as we move forward, we’ll be getting to a point where I believe by the end of September we should be able to start seeing some draft sets of design drawings for the two,” said Crawford. “Now it’s time to really tie in any decision of what this section of Main Street’s going to look like so that can be tied in with McLeod Ave.”
Option 1 details angle parking on both the east and west sides of the street with a 1.5 metre pedestrian access (sidewalk), trees along each side of the street and bulbs at each end (Church Road and McLeod Ave) with greenery in them. The City Centre Business Association supports Option 1 and submitted a letter to city administration in August.
