SPR Emerge

An event from our friends at the Stony Plain Road Business Association:

Sept 16th – 26th 2021

SPR Emerge is a community engagement project that aims to increase pedestrian traffic and enhance the image along Stony Plain Road. The event has two parts: one is the installation of vinyl art onto the windows of businesses in the SPR area, and the other is the display of original, 2D artwork at a vacant storefront. Both the vinyl art and the 2D art were created by local emerging artists of Edmonton. At the vacant storefront, the pieces that are displayed all portray a certain relation to the SPR area and how it is emerging as a business and shopping center.”

University of Alberta Urban Heat Study

It’s been a hot summer, and a research team from the University of Alberta is looking for some information on how residents have noticed changes in the urban heat island effect. More info is below:

Description: We, the Urban Environment Observatory research team at the University of Alberta, are looking at how the urban heat island (UHI) effect has changed in Edmonton’s neighbourhoods over the last few years. This research is funded by the Alberta Ecotrust Foundation partnering with the City of Edmonton. Through this research, we are trying to understand resident’s perception and experience of the UHI effect and their mitigation and adaptation behaviours. So your input is invaluable in achieving the success of  the study.” Please fill out the survey using the link below:

An update from the City of Edmonton on community league swim times

As of September 6, 2020 the Exclusive Pool Use and Unified Community League Access Program will be suspended for the remainder of 2020.

Many of the City of Edmonton Pools are not currently open. The facilities that are open are running at reduced capacity, with adjusted operating hours that would put some of the Community Swim outside of our current operating hours.  This is creating an uneven opportunity for Community League Members to access City Facilities at these times.  When and how these programs will be reinstated will be established for 2021, barring any new or additional COVID 19 restrictions from Alberta Health Services.
