AHS and Alberta Infrastructure want to thank everyone who participated in the spring 2018 CapitalCare Norwood Redevelopment Project open house. Since then, the rezoning and land use amendments permits have been submitted to the City of Edmonton and are currently under review. Planning and design work continues. Alberta Infrastructure and project consultants have met with the City of Edmonton to discuss traffic circulation and related issues.
Negotiations with the homeowners whose houses needed to be acquired to make way for the project have been completed. In the fall (coming weeks), preparation for demolition of these houses will begin. To reduce vandalism fencing will be installed installed around the houses and testing for hazardous materials will occur. This is a standard safety precaution and not an indication there are any hazardous materials in the houses. It’s anticipated demolition of the houses may occur in late November but we will provide an update to the community once a date is confirmed.
In the fall, some geotechnical testing is expected to take place on 105 St and on the land of the acquired houses. Drilling will be done to take samples to test the ground beneath. An RFP for the a site parkade has been issued and design work will start this fall. The project site plan includes surface parking lots to accommodate site visitor parking. Construction timelines are dependent on City approval of the permits but we are hoping to begin work in 2019. We will keep the community updated as schedules get confirmed.
