On July 25th, a one-day, one-block street makeover took place on Henderson Hwy between Noble and Hart.
The event was organized by Reimagine Elmwood, a grassroots committee of 7 community groups including GeNA, the Chalmers Neighbourhood Renewal Corporation and the Elmwood Business Coalition.
Over the course of the afternoon, more than 100 people came out to experience a temporary “happier Henderson” with an added crosswalk, protected bike lane, street furniture, flowers and trees. There was even a small sidewalk sale by a local business!
Reception from those in attendance was overwhelmingly positive and the event was covered by several media outlets. Check out this article in The Herald and this clip from CTV. Big thanks to our community partners, all the hardworking volunteers who helped out all day in the sweltering heat and Councillor Jason Schreyer for his valued support.
