The City of Edmonton is inviting the public to provide input on flood mitigation solutions. Information is being collected to help shape the next stages of public engagement on the matter, and to help develop a long-term strategy for upgrading the city’s drainage system.
Residents are encouraged to take part in the initial survey online at the Edmonton Insight Community survey, or via phone by calling 311.
Thank you to everyone who attended the January 19 Holyrood Gardens redevelopment open house put on by Regency Developments and Stantec. For those who were unable to attend, here is a summary of what was presented:
The developer presented two possible options for the redevelopment; both involve seven towers of varying heights with a combined total of approximately 1,200 units.
Option A involves narrower towers from 10 to 22 stories in height lining 85 St.
Option B involves wider but shorter towers from 12 to 20 stories in height spread across more of the site.
See the photos below from the open house showing both options and their impacts, and some of the feedback provided by community residents:
All information regarding this proposal that has been provided so far can be found at the Holyrood Gardens Redevelopment page.
At this point, the developer has not yet submitted their rezoning proposal to the city; feedback is still being collected by Anna Moir at Stantec. Anna may be reached at 780-917-7412 or email@example.com
OUTDOOR SOCCER REGISTRATION
Are your kids interested in playing outdoor soccer this year?
Registration Day is Sunday February 12th
1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Holyrood Community Rink Shack
You must register online (starting February 1st) at emsasoccerportal.com
Parents are encouraged to make use of the online fee payment option to save time on registration day.
Please remember to print your forms to bring with you, as well as: a current community league membership (or purchase one on site), proof of your child’s age (birth certificate, AHC card, passport) and two or three cheques.
For those unable to attend, there will be a late registration day at Ottewell Hall on Sunday March 12th from 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm.
Financial assistance is available to those who qualify. Refer to http://emsasoutheast.com for further details.
The Holyrood Soccer Committee is also looking for outdoor soccer referees for the upcoming season. Refereeing is a great way for kids to earn summer spending money, make a difference in their community, and learn about the responsibility required to succeed in a job. If your child is interested in refereeing please contact the Holyrood Soccer Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to seeing you at the rink shack on February 12th and on the (hopefully) snow-less soccer field in May!
Thanks in advance for sharing the ice with all community members!
