UPDATE FROM COUNCILLOR RICE

Update January 19, 2022:

Hello Everyone,

Please review the following attachment for an update for Councillor Rice regarding the Capital Line South LRT Update, as well as the survey link:

http://www.twinbrooks.ca/Capitial Line South LRT Update - January 2023.pdf

As a reminder, Council's survey closes January 22, at 11:59pm. Filling this out is integral to ensuring your feedback and perspectives can be seen/heard regarding the approved Twin Brooks LRT station. 

Additionally, many residents were requesting a new Twin Brooks LRT station noise study at Councillor Rice's September public engagement session. A second noise study was completed in October 2022, and the results are published. For further details, please scroll down to, "Determining How the LRT Will Fit" and click on the "December 2022: Noise Study" heading in this link.

If you have further questions, please connect with the City LRT Team or Councillor Rice

PLAYGROUND INFORMATION

Playground Update NOVEMBER 23/22:

The Twin Brooks Park and Playground Committee is happy to announce that we, along with the City of Edmonton, will be moving ahead with the redevelopment of our community playground!  The redevelopment of the playground will begin in Spring/Summer of 2023.  It will take approximately two months to complete. 

We will be removing all the sand and existing playground equipment and replacing it with Engineered Wood Filler (woodchips) and brand-new equipment!  We will use the existing playground footprint – we are unable to make it bigger and it is larger than the footprint allotted for new playground developments.  There will be an addition of metal shelter and picnic tables to help provide some much needed shade as well as a place for community members to have picnics.  It is uncertain as to if we will be able to include the bump track or additional seating around the playground, at this time, due to lack of funding.  Please donate to our playground!  Every dollar counts!

Twin Brooks Playground Go Fund Me

Hello Everyone,
 
As many of you know, we are raising funds for a NEW PLAYGROUND! Our bottle drive raised $433 - Thank you!!! As you can imagine, we still need more to meet the cost, as well as to account for any unexpected expenses that may arise.
 
Many thanks to Kelly, our Memberships Director, for setting up this Go Fund Me and for spearheading the playground goal!

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.  
Basically, you can not use tobacco or cannabis anywhere in the entire park space around the community league facilities and school. Best to stay at home to do your smoking and/or vaping.

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.
