PEDESTRIANS, PARKING & TRAFFIC
One of the many roles we play as a Business Improvement Area (BIA) is to advocate on behalf of businesses and community, to the City to bring about necessary and positive changes that enhance our neighbourhood. Walkability, and the need for increased space for people was a message we heard loud and clear, and were able to advocate for significant changes from the City including expanded patio spaces, reduced patio permitting times, as well as shared street spaces that will reduce vehicle traffic, and increase spaces for people to walk. Info will be rolled out over several weeks from the City.
The City of Edmonton provides ample parking options in and around the Old Strathcona neighbourhood with active on-street EPark Zones. To make parking in these zones easier, you can download the MyEPark app. The Farmer's Market lot is open to customers 6 days a week, free to market goers on Saturday's, underground parking is available at the Roots on Whyte building, and covered parking is available at the Varscona Hotel.
SAFETY & ETIQUETTE ON THE AVE
When visiting, working, or playing in District Whyte we are asking all visitors to follow the guidelines set out by the Province's Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Hinshaw. Those guidelines include practicing physical distancing, wearing a mask if/when you are in a space where physical distancing is not possible, and being respectful and kind to others in your interactions.
Also, please know that each individual business in our neighbourhood, may have specific requirements and guidelines in place based on the needs of their specific business, and those guidelines are in place to keep you safe, and also must be followed. For specific questions about individual business practices, please reach out to the business directly.
We look forward to making District Whyte an area that is safe and enjoyable for everyone!...
