Project Overview

The 2023 Capital Budget adopted a Finance Committee Amendment to fund design and construction for work on the Robin Greenway. This budget amendment includes design and construction to replace the culvert at Orchard Street. It also includes restoration work within the drainage way greenspace to address concerns related to erosion, slope stabilization, tree impacts, access, restoration and long term maintenance of this public property.

The City recognizes that this space provides multiple benefits to the community as part of our storm infrastructure. The design process will incorporate public engagement to address community concerns related to tree health, access, vegetation while improving the environmental conditions to minimize erosion, address stormwater impacts and manage long-term vegetation goals. It is important to the City that this space is reflective of shared goals to manage urban ecosystems that serve multiple community and environmental benefits.

Public engagement is anticipated to being in early 2023.

Project Schedule

More information will be posted when available. 

Public Involvement

There are a number of points of contact during this project where the public is encouraged to give feedback as part of public information meetings and public hearings. Dates, times and locations will be posted once determined.

Mailings

Engineering has mailed tree removal letters to residents adjacent to the greenway. These letters inform adjacent residents of 6 trees that City Forestry identified as hazards and need to be removed promptly. The trees are located within the yellow area on the tree removal map, and include the 6 trees below.

  • (1) 21” DBH Black locust tree
  • (1) 15” DBH Black locust tree
  • (1) 20” DBH Black locust tree
  • (2) 17” DBH Black locust tree
  • (1) 22” DBH Black locust tree

No other tree removals are planned prior to the public engagement process. In the event that a tree needs to removed due to hazard prior to the public engagement process, this website will be updated, the alder will be notified and letters will be mailed to adjoining residents.
