Be prepared for noise, construction: TransEd

From TransEd: Starting on or around September 18, 2019, TransEd crews will begin overnight work on the Tawatinâ bridge. In an effort to expedite work and take advantage of the weather before it gets too cold, crews will be working 24 hours a day Mondays through Saturdays. This work is expected to last approximately eight weeks.

There will be noise associated with this work. TransEd is aware that overnight noise is disruptive and has taken several noise mitigation actions in advance of this work and will endeavor to have the most disruptive work completed by midnight.

To accommodate this work, the public will be impacted in the following areas: 

Residents near the south river valley may hear overnight noise from the work. 

TransEd is committed to following all City of Edmonton bylaws and regulations and has obtained an overnight roadwork permit so that work can take place during nighttime hours in order to minimize major daytime traffic disruptions. *City of Edmonton Bylaw C14600. 

We ask for your understanding and patience as construction progresses. For more information, visit our website http://transedlrt.ca or contact us via email at info@transedlrt.ca or by phone 780-224-0964.

NOTICE OF MOTION AND AGM

The Cloverdale Community League (CCL) is an inclusive, welcoming organization that offers social and recreational activities for all ages – from preschoolers to seniors.

One fall tradition CCL has is the annual general meeting (AGM). This year we want to try something different in order to make the meeting more accessible to individuals and families. First of all, the meeting will be held on Sunday, September 22, at 3PM, at the Cloverdale Community League hall. We hope the new time will enable more people to attend. Second, we plan to offer children’s activities on site so parents can attend and know their children are being minded. Community League memberships will be available prior to the meeting.

The CCL bylaws require 21-days of notice to league members for significant financial and other matters. This year, we have three motions to present to the membership. The exact motions are available in our AGM agenda. Otherwise, here’s the context for them.

1) Need for Executive Director 
It’s the CCL board’s view that the community has reached a point in its evolution where employing a part-time executive director is necessary. We feel we need this person to focus on the tactical stuff, like administration, grants, funding and program evaluation. We board volunteers don’t have the time or resources to be proactive and forward looking if we also tend to these matters.

2) Programming cost rethink 
Cost-free programming stretches back to 2015, when it was created on a trial. After inspecting the league’s finances, and given some shifts in income, the CCL board feels it’s time to revisit these fees. The rate of subsidy is currently 100 per cent. In the board’s view this is not sustainable. The intent of this motion is to allow the board to set program fees that are fiscally prudent but do not present barriers for participation.

3) Hall upgrades
Our infrastructure upgrades at the hall over recent years have included HVAC work, new lights and solar panels. Now the aging hall needs a coat of paint and some repairs inside. We will table a motion at the AGM to spend money on this, depending on our ability to have the City of Edmonton match our spend through grants.

ELECTIONS

The CCL is a volunteer-driven organization. The purpose of the board is to be future-oriented, strategic and to manage the assets of the CCL in a financial responsible manner. We have a number of volunteer positions available for you to share your knowledge, skills and abilities. We encourage you to consider contributing your talents to the CCL.

The CCL board is looking to reduce the number of meetings as well as the time and effort required to serve on the league board. Several CCL members have already offered to serve in a number of positions, but there’s always room for more. There will be sign-up sheets available at the AGM to allow you to volunteer for a range of opportunities.


GALLAGHER PARK CONCEPT PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT
WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 18, FROM 4:30-7:30PM, CCL Hall

The Gallagher Park Concept Plan and redevelopment doesn't just impact Cloverdale, it has city-wide reach. That said, it's critical that Cloverdale residents get involved to ensure our hyperlocal ideas and concerns are reflected in the plan. If we're not involved, then the views of other stakeholders may take precedent.

Please come to the CCL Hall and share your views.

CCL TO MATCH YOUTH DONATION TO KIDS WITH CANCER SOCIETY

Cloverdale youth participating in the Cloverdale Youth Concession at this year’s Edmonton Folk Music Festival will donate 5 per cent of their profits to the Kids with Cancer Society. Cloverdale Community League will match this donation. The league and the community together congratulate these young residents not only for learning and developing important business skills but also helping other youth in need.

MUTTART SERVICE LANE CLOSURE - LRT CONSTRUCTION

Starting on or around July 1, 2019, the south end of the Muttart Conservatory service road (98 Avenue) will be temporarily closed for construction. During this closure, access to the Muttart Conservatory Greenhouse will be maintained with one lane in either direction. The work will last approximately 12 weeks.

There will be no access to Connors Road from 98 Avenue. The best option to access Connors Road is to use the traffic circle at Bonnie Doon. Alternately, motorists can take the 85 Street exit from the traffic circle at 98 Avenue.

To access Connors Road from 98 Avenue westbound, motorists can cross the Low Level Bridge to Rossdale Road. At Bellamy Hill Road, motorists can turn left onto 97 Avenue which will take them over the James Macdonald Bridge, at which time they can take the Connors Road exit. Vehicle, bicycle, and pedestrian traffic disruptions will vary by location.

You now live in the best neighbourhood in the great City of Edmonton. It’s called “The Village in the Park” because that’s exactly what it is, one of the smallest, friendliest communities in the city, set in the very heart of the downtown North Saskatchewan River valley parklands. We’re bordered by the River to the north, Dowler’s Hill to the east, Gallagher Park and the Edmonton Ski Club to the south, and the glorious Muttart Conservatory and Gardens to the west.

Members enjoy year-round social and recreational activities at the playground and spray park, the rink and toboggan hill, and the beautiful Cloverdale Hall, where residents regularly gather for stimulating programs and lively parties.

Everyone is welcome and encouraged to get involved.
