“Could be the tipping point’: New food-arts-community hub planned for Alberta Avenue”
That’s the headline from the Edmonton Journal article by Elise Solte, published August 30, 2018, the day after the ArtsCommon 118 Community Party and Engagement Event.
Read the article.
It was a rainy day, but 120 area residents and stakeholders showed up to take a look at the design concepts and participate in two consultation sessions. We are currently going through all of the feedback, ideas, questions, and concerns that participants voiced and once we have it all compiled, we will publish all of it right here. Give us a week or two.
Big thanks to the Alberta Real Estate Foundation for funding the many costs of undertaking a community event of this size. It’s not all that common for funders to support community engagement and we appreciate the AREF seeing the importance of engaging residents in determining what they want in their community.
A new Edmonton CDC website will be up in a couple of weeks and then we will be devoting an entire section of this site to the ArtsCommon 118 journey. Stay tuned.
Photos of the community party will be posted soon.
ArtsCommon 118 is a partnership between Edmonton CDC and Arts on the Ave.
