Insight in Action
Building Great Neighbourhoods Handbook

Thank you to the Insight Edmonton Community members who took part in the Building Great Neighbourhoods Handbook survey back in July. We were very pleased to find that the vast majority of respondents found the handbook to be a valuable and informative document. Based on the feedback you gave in the survey, we have made revisions to the handbook to better serve the needs of Edmontonians undergoing neighbourhood renewal. A few of the changes made in response to your feedback are:

  • Added page specific web links, where appropriate, to the top of the page – many respondents wanted to know where to find the information online and didn’t want to have to search through the text to find the specific link
  • Removed the ‘Know Your Roads’ page – determined to be unnecessary information
  • Increased the font size – to aid easy of reading
  • Added a  visual of “project areas” for local improvements – this term caused confusion but must be used for the process
  • Changed the page layout and added information to make a clearer distinction between what is included in Sidewalk Reconstruction vs. Sidewalk Maintenance – it was previously unclear what Sidewalk Maintenance included and how it differed from Sidewalk Reconstruction
  • Changed the page layout and added some information to make the Petitioning Against process for each local improvement clearer – the process was found to be unclear and difficult to locate in each section

We invite you to take a look through the revised Building Great Neighbourhoods Handbook online.
