The City of Red Deer invites members of the public to attend the Gaetz Avenue Vision open house on April 25 from 4 until 8 p.m.

This is one of the last chances for Red Deerians to give their input regarding future improvements made to Gaetz Avenue.

It will also be an opportunity to look over the updated street design plan, developed by ISL Engineering and Land Services.

The city wants to see Gaetz become more than just “asphalt and cars,” transforming it into a more pedestrian, bicyclist and transit rider friendly street.

The public open house will take place at the Golden Circle Senior Resource Centre at 4620 47A Ave.

The city will also be giving away a free iPod shuffle at the open house.

The design for Gaetz will also be on display at Parkland Mall on Saturday and the public can give their feedback.
