Update: MAY 8, 2023
Hello Twin Brooks Residents!
We are long overdue for some updates, but we do believe the adage, "good things come to those who wait" holds true in this circumstance! The Board is working hard on some upcoming exciting events and initiatives, so please keep checking our social media and neighbourhood sign for when we have more details available!
In the meantime, having more volunteers expands our capacity to support you, our neighbours! Please reach out to Kayla at president at twinbrooks dot ca in the meantime if you are interested in contributing in any capacity – we would love to have you on board.
In the meantime, we invite you to review the following:
- LRT Updates
Councillor Rice has informed us that budgetary constraints mean the City LRT team has proposed scope changes. Please review all the proposed changes in the Council Report here. It is important that residents have a clear understanding of the proposed changes.
A final decision on these proposed changes will be made at City Council's May 16 meeting on May 16th. Residents were provided an opportunity to speak on May 3 at an Executive Committee meeting, though public input can still be shared with Mayor Sohi and City Council members via email. Councillor emails can be found here, and Mayor Sohi's information is here.
As always, please do not hesitate to contact Councillor Rice or the City LRT Team if you have ongoing questions or concern
- Playground Updates
- Construction is slated to start very soon, so please note we will not be hosting a Greenshack Program to ensure everyone's safety. We hope to resume this program in 2024!
- We are still raising funds to help cover the costs of our new playground: https://gofund.me/4f8e575d
WHY BECOME A Community League MEMBER?
Did you know that Community League facilities are managed and operated completely by COMMUNITY VOLUNTEERS? The City of Edmonton provides the land and contributes some programs and resources, but the City does NOT manage or maintain any of our facilities (hall or rink). Work is done by community volunteers and most funds are via volunteer fundraising projects. Want to have a nice ice surface to skate on? JOIN US. Any help would be greatly appreciated by those who are already spending countless hours volunteering their time to provide this to the community. There are many other opportunities to help out too. But the FIRST and foremost important thing: Become a member. Community League membership is the foundation of all this, and it's literally pennies per day (now rounded off to nickels, of course 🤣). We look forward to seeing you!
CANNABIS USE AROUND COMMUNITY LEAGUE FACILITIES:The use of tobacco and cannabis (smoking, vaping, etc.) is prohibited within 10 metres of parkland space which contains a school, community centre, parking lot, playground, rink, or sports field.
You can refer to City of Edmonton Bylaw 14614 (Public Places) for more details. Community League facilities are monitored by security resources including recorded video 24 hours per day.
