Local Area Service Program

A Local Area Service is a cost sharing process for implementing desired neighbourhood infrastructure works such as sidewalks, curb and gutter, lane paving and street lighting. The property owners who directly benefit from the project pay a portion of the costs and the City pays the remaining construction costs.

Local Area Services may be initiated by the City, but are usually initiated by residents using a petition process set out in the Community Charter Interested residents are encouraged to contact the Engineering Department for advice and assistance.

Local Area Service Petition Process

  • A property owner completes a Local Area Services Request Form and submits it to the Engineering Department at City Hall either in person, by fax 604-985-8439 or email to eng@cnv.org.
  • A staff member visits the site to determine the feasibility and cost of the project.
  • If the project is feasible, a petition package is mailed to the initiating property owner. The petition package contains the names and addresses of the owners whose property abuts the proposed project, along with relevant costs.

View Schedule "A" to Bylaw 6194 for current costs for local area service works.
