Two public consultation sessions are planned on Thursday, April 21 and Tuesday April 26th at City Hall to receive input on Wilson Street and parkade features and design.

The Wilson Street parking project includes the following components:

  1. Building a parkade in the Wilson Street parking lot, located at the southwest corner of Wilson Street and Carden Street. The parkade will have a minimum of 350 parking spaces and be a maximum of six levels tall.
  2. Upgrading Wilson Street from Gordon /Norfolk Street to Macdonell Street. This work will include:
  • Sidewalk upgrades;
  • Adding bike lane(s);
  • Landscaping;
  • Watermain, sanitary and storm sewers replacement;
  • Potential redesign of on-street parking along Wilson Street; and
  • Creating a pedestrian island on Macdonell Street across from Wilson Street
