The city is seeking public input into the new Wilson Street Parkade project.

Two initial public meetings are planned to garner input towards the building of the new parkade are planned: Thursday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m; Tuesday, April 26, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m.

City staff will be on hand to answer questions and gather input.

“We want to introduce the project and get feedback from downtown residents, businesses and users about the Wilson Street reconstruction and parkade, as well as the replacement of the Norfolk Street pedestrian bridge,” said Ian Panabaker, corporate manager of Downtown Renewal.

Participants will have an opportunity to provide feedback on the project’s features and design, including on-street parking, sidewalk width, overall appearance of the parkade, parkade entrance/exit location, and pedestrian and cycling connections.

This is the first of a series of public meetings for the project.

The meetings take place at City Hall, Room 112.

Construction on the new $13.8 million parkade is expected to start in December and take approximately one year to complete.

Public meeting, requests for proposals, hiring a design team and awarding the contract are all expected to take place over the summer.

It will be preceded by some construction on Wilson Street in October and November.
