Lower Gallant pedestrian area — Livable Deep Cove

We're working to create a more accessible Gallant Avenue in Deep Cove.

This project proposes to formalize the flexible, protected pedestrian space and make the one-way traffic configuration permanent on lower Gallant Avenue.

The design of this block of Gallant Avenue between Panorama Drive and Banbury Road features improved pedestrian areas and gathering spaces, and incorporates landscaping, street trees, and rain gardens.

The project builds on the very positive feedback we’ve received as a result of the temporary expanded pedestrian area and through community engagement last summer. 

Thank you for your participation in our online engagement. The survey closed on June 26, 2022.

June 13-14, 2021 — Livable Deep Cove survey

We asked community members to share their preferences for how the lower Gallant area should be used and the three draft design concepts by participating in our online survey that ran from June 14-30, 2021.

The purpose of the survey was to inform the community and collect feedback on the proposed improvements in the lower Gallant pedestrian area. 

The input received from the public will be taken into consideration as staff develop a project scope of work.

Background

In 2020, we created a temporary pedestrian zone on lower Gallant Avenue to provide more space for gathering safely during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Following very positive feedback from the community about this pilot project, we applied to the provincial and federal governments for grant funding to improve outdoor spaces in the community and help create a more livable Deep Cove.

We received grant funding approval for $3.3 million on June 11, 2021. The provincial grant deadline to complete the work is December 31, 2023.

We conducted community engagement between June 14 and 30, 2021 to inform the community and collect feedback on prosed improvements in the lower Gallant pedestrian area:

  • 82% of respondents strongly or somewhat strongly support change on lower Gallant in Deep Cove Village as part of the Livable Deep Cove Plan
  • 66% were very satisfied or somewhat satisfied with the full renewal concept, which was the most favoured of the three concepts proposed

The proposed design is a version of the initial "full renewal concept" as presented last year, with modifications that address feedback from the public and Council.
