City of Edmonton’s Vision Zero Street Lab
6:00pm to 7:30pm
4059 Orchards Drive SW
A Vision Zero Street Lab, which uses adaptable traffic calming measures to increase street safety, is being explored in The Orchards at Ellerslie. Residents can RSVP to the on-street meet-up by registering on Eventbrite.
Share Your Experiences
We want to hear perspectives from people who use all modes of transportation to get around the community.
Residents play an ADVISORY role in this project, meaning the City will be collecting their lived experience and insight into what the street safety issues are in the neighbourhood.
Get involved using the following methods:
- Take the online survey open July 5 – August 2
- Provide feedback on the interactive mapping tool open July 5 – August 2
- Participate in a Walk and Roll Audit on Thursday, July 13, at 6:00 PM at the Orchards Resident Association in the green space on the West side of the parking lot.
How Your Insights will be Used
Feedback shared will be used to determine if this neighbourhood is best suited for a Street Lab, and a What We Heard report will be posted on this page to share learnings.
If a Street Lab is the best fit for your neighbourhood, City staff will use their engineering expertise, with your feedback in mind, to determine what adaptable measures will have the greatest impact in the neighbourhood.
If a Street Lab is not the best fit for your neighbourhood, another Safe Mobility program may be recommended.
If you have questions about this project, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Stay involved by signing up for project updates at engaged.edmonton.ca/OrchardsatEllerslieStreetLab

Some background on the City’s approach to improve street safety:
The Safe Mobility team has been working hard behind the scenes to implement the key actions in the Safe Mobility Strategy 2021-2025. We are working directly with neighbourhood residents to address traffic safety concerns through the Vision Zero Street Labs program. Projects like Street Labs help spark community attention, shift how we move around the city, and change how we think about and use our streets.
How the Orchards Resident Association can help:
We encourage you to get involved in the process, and share this information with your Resident Association members. One of the ways for you and Resident Association members to be involved is to be a part of the Street Lab’s “Project Advisory Team,” which will receive regular project status updates and an overview of the final Street Lab plan prior to installation.
We’re looking forward to advising and exploring new ideas to make our streets safer and more livable.
