Notice of open house: York Road Environmental Design Study, February 23

Clythe Creek Study AreaThe City is planning improvements to the York Road corridor to address the current and future needs of our growing community. Improvements include widening the road from two to four lanes and adding sidewalks and bike lanes. The York Road Environmental Design Study is the next step toward these improvements. This study supplements the York Road Environmental Assessment completed in 2007 that identified the improvements to be made. Natural and cultural features are important considerations for design. The York Road Environmental Design Study is looking at all aspects of the local environment to establish design requirements for the recommended improvements. The study will identify a design that ensures minimal impacts on natural and cultural heritage features. The study is focused on the section of York Road from Victoria Street to the eastern City limit, east of Watson Road.
