Plans are underway to refresh and revitalize Pillette Village’s Wyandotte Avenue and Pillette Road streetscapes. The local business improvement area (BIA) association and City Administration are requesting a special consideration of Council for part of a $320,000 proposed renovation.

The details of the joint project would include the following:

  • Banners and banner poles
  • Address markers for buildings
  • New planters and greenery
  • Bike racks
  • New trash/recycle stations

The proposed design of the streetscape elements reflects the unique character of the BIA with a blend of Art Nouveau and Art Deco motifs. Coloured glass rondels and aluminum scroll work topping the banner polls will complement existing elements like the current benches. Place-making banners will identify the north-south Wyandotte Street gateways as well as the east and west gateways of Pillette Road.

City Council will be asked for approval on Monday, February 28th.
