EISA Drop-In Open House


Tuesdays, February 3 at 5:00pm - 8:30pm
Location: Old Timer's Cabin

The City is making slight adjustments to plans for the Valley Line LRT in the river valley in response to stakeholder concerns identified during the preliminary design process. Among other things, these adjustments are intended to:

Better accommodate Edmonton Ski Club and Muttart Conservatory 
operations
Help minimize construction traffic on Cameron Avenue
Provide better connectivity for trail users during construction

The adjustments will be the subject of an update to the Environmental Impact Screening Assessment
(EISA) accepted by City Council in September 2013.

The public is invited to drop in anytime during the open house to view presentation boards, pick up handouts, speak with project staff and provide feedback. The public's feedback will inform the update to the EISA that will be presented at a non-statutory hearing in March 2015.

For more information please check this link or email lrtprojects@edmonton.ca or leave a
voicemail at the LRT Projects Message Centre: 780.496.4874

Volunteer Appreciation

Avonmore celebrated its volunteers on June 14 with a special evening at the Valley Zoo. We met dexter the ferret, turtle and bunny, ate ice cream, walked around the zoo looking at all the animals, spun around the merry go round and paddled around the boat with the ducks. It was a perfect night and a great way to say thank you to all of the fantastic volunteers we have in the community that ensure our programs run, that our the playground, spray deck and rink continue to be community meeting places and so much more. Without the commitment and hard work of each of our volunteers, Avonmore wouldn't be the great neighbourhood it is. Thank you!

Thank you to the City of Edmonton, Wild Earth Cafe, Acme Meat Market and Famoso Pizzeria for supporting our volunteer appreciation event and helping us celebrate our volunteers and their families.

Don't miss our next volunteer appreciation event, make your community a better place today. We are currently looking for a Sports Director to ensure our popular indoor & outdoor soccer programs continue. This can be a shared position. We are also looking to fill the roles of Secretary, Treasurer and Vice President. Please contact president@avonmore.org for more details.
