Town council approves one-way Centennial Street plan

Sylvan Lake town councillors on Monday gave their stamp of approval to a Centennial Street Development Plan

Sylvan Lake town councillors on Monday gave their stamp of approval to a Centennial Street Development Plan that will see a portion of the street converted to one-way among a number of other upgrades and improvements.

Town of Sylvan Lake staff say redeveloping the road between Lakeshore Drive and 48 Ave. will improve parking, walkability and safety for both traffic and pedestrians.

New sidewalks, street upgrades, public art, landscaping and streetlights will all be a part of the redevelopment initiative.

Council on Monday approved a plan option that will see the road become one-way northbound between 50A Ave. and Lakeshore Drive. Angle parking will be located on the west side of the street, with parallel parking situated on the east.

Two-way traffic will remain on the road between 50 Ave. and 50A Ave., with parallel parking to be located on both sides.

The plan’s approval means a detailed design plan can now proceed, with construction expected in 2016.

Further public input will be sought as the project moves forward.

“We thank those that have provided feedback thus far, and will again seek further input from the public as we move to the detailed design stage,” said Mayor Sean McIntyre.

“Centennial Street is the heart of our community, and we want to ensure our residents and business owners have an opportunity to get involved in the redevelopment.”
