Provide your Blatchford feedback online

The City of Edmonton recently held three open houses to invite Edmontonians to provide their suggestions on what other sustainability and liveability features might be considered for this unique, sustainable community. Hundreds of citizens attended the open houses and shared ideas.

If you did not have an opportunity to attend an open house, you can provide your feedback through an online survey available at BlatchfordEdmonton.ca

The survey will run from September 10, 2014 until September 19, 2014.

The information gathered from the open houses and the online survey will be summarized in the October 28, 2014, report to Council for consideration in the future development plans for Blatchford.

Blatchford will be home to up to 30,000 Edmontonians living, working and learning in a sustainable community that uses 100% renewable energy, is carbon neutral, significantly reduces its ecological footprint, and empowers residents to pursue a range of sustainable lifestyle choices.

Student safety at the head of the class for the City of Edmonton

 

As of September 2, 2014, school zones will come into effect around elementary schools throughout Edmonton. Motorists will be required by law to slow down to 30 km/h between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on school days where new signage is posted. The lower speed limit will improve safety around elementary schools and protect the city’s most vulnerable road users: young children.
