Edmonton looking at more possible changes to Churchill Square
The city is again looking at tweaking Churchill Square as Edmonton’s central gathering spot faces pressure on all sides.
An outside consultant is set to look at options for the square and will likely consult the public over the summer on any possible changes. Here's all you need to know on what could be around the corner.
Tannia Franke, supervisor of the civic precinct, said the consultant's review is in its early stages and is driven partially by maintenance costs, as just replacing paving stones is costing the city $50,000 per year.
She said there is a lot the city has to figure out and they’re keeping an open mind.
“We’re in a concept phase for that right now,” she said. “They’re going to give us a number of options and cost estimates after some consultation happens over the summer.”
