Update Strathcona Community League Ice Rink


Posted by & filed under Community Events or Classes, Social.

In the last few days, we received some enquiries about our ice rink. Here a little update on our rink.

The rink will soon be flooded by our contractor.  It’s hard to predict exactly when it will be ready for skating, as it depends on the weather, and also on the contractor’s availability. Typically our ice rink is ready to go between December 15th and 30th.  As soon as it opens we will update you via email, facebook and our site.

Council turns down amendment Mezzo


Posted by & filed under Development Projects Strathcona, Neighbourhood, Renewal.

We are very pleased with the outcome of todays council meeting in regards to the Mezzo development and the request from the developer to have the affordable housing provision changed. Council turned down the amendment request telling Westoak the developer to meet the provisions approved in the DC2 provision in April of 2016. We are very pleased that council understood the importance of affordable family housing in the communities of Queen Alex and Strathcona and is holding the developer accountable to the DC2 provision.

Thank you to Barbara Sanders and Kirsten Goa who also spoke in opposition on behalf of our community. Any communication sent to councillors from the community is also appreciated as in this case we gained a positive result. Councillor Henderson was very supportive and worked to assist us with our strategy and did an excellent job of raising the right questions to ensure the rest of council fully understood the important issues around this request for a DC2 provision change.
