Inglewood Supportive Housing

The City of Edmonton is proposing the development of a 5-storey (30 unit) supportive housing development in Inglewood at the location of 12312 112 Avenue. This development will provide people who have experienced homeless with the support, safety, and stability they need to lead healthy and connected lives through on-site staff and wraparound services. 

The City wants to hear from you! They are planning a series of community engagement opportunities over the course of this summer to solicit community feedback on the project. These opportunities will include online surveys, digital community round tables, and larger format public engagement sessions. If you are interested in participating in the engagement process email supportivehousing@edmonton.ca or click on the link below to sign up for email updates and complete a survey.

Inglewood Community League Hall Energy Audit

Students from the Alternative Energy Program at NAIT visited the Hall on October 28, 2019 to complete a free Energy Audit for the Inglewood Community League.  The instructor, Dan Nkwetta, and his students, including Inglewood Community League Member Jeff Meszaros, completed a thorough walkthrough and assessment by taking measurements of the building and its equipment. This report and their recommendations will help us identify possible ways to increase the energy efficiency of our hall and reduce our energy consumption. 

The report should be completed in December, at which time we’ll set up a presentation to review the report and recommendations for the community members. Stay tuned for future updates and event information.
