According to a story in today’s Star Phoenix, the SBID presented a report to council last night and proposed three improvements for the main thoroughfare that separates Sutherland from neighbouring Forest Grove. SBID is recommending a “sound and dust attenuation wall” adjacent to the CP rail line, the design and construction of a “public plaza,” and an active pedestrian crossing at the 110th Street intersection.
Ward 1 councillor Darren Hill stands with the business group hoping to help make Central Avenue “more pedestrian friendly.”
Several business closings in recent years have led to a perception of a deteriorating Central Avenue. SBID and councilor Hill believe that the proposed improvements will revitalize the area.
