Avonmore Planning Committee Survey: Avonmore Community League formed a Community Planning Committee to be a positive and proactive force in the direction, development, and evolution of the physical environment of the community.

The City of Edmonton has undertaken many initiatives related to denser housing in mature neighbourhood. Considering these City initiatives, we ask residents (both renters and owners) to fill out this short seven question survey on your thoughts and concerns regarding future planning and development in Avonmore.

The results of the survey will be shared with residents in early June on the Avonmore Community League website and will be used to set plans and priorities for the Planning Committee.

Abundant Communities.  We are bringing the Abundant Communities initiative to Avonmore in 2019! 

ACE is a citizen-led and City-supported framework that facilitates community building starting at the block level. The ACE vision includes neighbours forming strong, caring and supportive blocks and neighbourhoods where we look out for one another, share our talents, skills and resources, do activities together, and collectively create the neighbourhoods we desire.

We will be officially launching ACE in Avonmore in the late Spring and will be looking for many enthusiastic volunteers to make this initiative successful. Keep your eyes on the Avonmore Facebook page and our next newsletter for more information on ACE and how you can get involved. If you’re interested in learning more, email Wendy at programs@avonmore.org.

Neighbourhood Watch. We are in the process of forming a Neighbourhood Watch group. Resident Natasha Holmkvist has agreed to be the key contact and Andrea Schmidt will assist her. Email president@avonmore.org if you are interested in helping. 

Avonmore Community League is on Facebook! Join us there for current news, information and discussion.
