Taking Action on Problem Properties: McCauley edition:

There was a problem strip mall, and neighbours pooled money to purchase it. 

The Piazza story is not just a McCauley story; it signals to other neighbourhoods and communities, to community developers, and to political leaders what can be accomplished by citizens determined to do what the community has chosen to do.


District Planning is a multi-year project to build The City Plan’s 15-minute districts—small towns in our big city— where people can meet many of their daily needs locally.

Scona District Open House: Thursday, October 6, 5pm-8pm at Queen Alexandra Community League.

The Whitemud District Open House will be held on Wednesday, September 21, 6pm-9pm at Yellowbird East Community League.


I can't give a big enough shout-out to the OSBA for pulling together these fantastic maps.

I love hopping on the bikes with the kids, borrowing a dog, and adventuring. It's a digital treasure hunt!


New Bus to the Zoo

This hasn't been announced yet, but I'm so excited to share that a new bus route is being created to take you from South Campus LRT Station to the Edmonton Valley Zoo. More to follow...

Request: Reading and Resource List
