You are invited to join your neighbours and the City of Edmonton, Neighbourhood Revitalization Team to the launch of Revitalization in the Inglewood Community!
The City of Edmonton project team wants to meet you, learn from you, and discuss our next steps. They will share information about the Neighbourhood Revitalization program, opportunities to collaborate and participate on the community strategy development working group. We want to include as many diverse voices as possible from the community. Everyone is welcome so please invite your neighbours to come with you!
Meet and Greet Date: November 20, 2018
Location: Winnifred Stewart Association – 11130-131 Street – Gym
On Tuesday, October 2 from 5:00 – 8:30 p.m. Building Great Neighbourhoods is hosting a drop-in engagement event at the Winnifred Stewart Association (11130 131 Street NW) for projects that impact Inglewood or the surrounding area. In addition to the Inglewood Neighbourhood Renewal project, there will also be a number of other project teams in attendance to share information or seek input.
For the Neighbourhood Renewal project, this event will be an opportunity for the public to explore and provide feedback on the draft concepts for the neighbourhood, including:
walkways and connectivity
bike routes and infrastructure
traffic calming measures
ideas to enhance public parks and green spaces
opportunities to reflect Inglewood’s identity and character
We will also be looking to understand the community’s priorities for the neighbourhood. Collectively, this information will help us refine the concepts and inform the preliminary designs, which will also be shared with the public for feedback later in the project.
As with our past Inglewood events, we have worked with other projects that impact the neighbourhood to present a coordinated engagement opportunity for the public to share their feedback as conveniently as possible:
The Neighbourhood Revitalization project team will be present to share information about when they will begin working in Inglewood and to hear the public’s thoughts on how Revitalization can support them in making their neighbourhood more safe, connected, active and vibrant through a focus on the social elements of the area
The 124 Street project team will be present to learn from the public about the challenges and opportunities on the street, to inform its future renewal (from 111 Ave to 118 Ave)
The Yellowhead Trail Freeway Conversion project team will be present to seek input that will help inform design considerations for various projects within the Yellowhead Trail Freeway Conversion Program, as well as the development of future communications and engagement plans
Inglewood Community League is seeking volunteers to canvass our community in support of Decorative Streeting Lighting (DSL).
Did you know?
Inglewood has been chosen for neighbourhood reconstruction beginning in spring 2019 with completion expected for 2021. This project provides our community with the chance to consider replacing the current standard streetlights with decorative streetlights. To be successful, Inglewood needs 50%+1 of the property owners who submit a form to the City, to vote in favour of Decorative Streetlights by November 13, 2018.
We have learned from our neighbouring communities who have been successful in getting DSL in place that a concerted community effort is needed to ensure that as many property owners as possible return the City’s form by the November 13, 2018 deadline.
Our DSL campaign is expected to start in early October and will run from September 24, 2018 to November 13, 2018. We need more residents to join our team so that we can reach out to all parts of Inglewood.
Never canvassed for something like this before?
Door-knocking is easier than it sounds. It is also a great way to meet other residents and get to know the other parts of your community.
The League will be offering a short training session (date pending) and briefing material for all interested volunteers. Please email Reetu at the email address below to be notified of the training date.
