High Level Bridge a Symptom of Major Issue

High Level Bridge a Symptom of Major Issue

 

This week, Council’s Community Services Committee heard from experts and discussed options for a barrier along the walkways of the High Level Bridge.

These options are being considered as deterrent to suicide attempts from the Bridge, which has become a suicide “hotspot” in our City, similar to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. At the meeting Monday, the Committee decided to recommend Council fund an approximately $3 million installation.

Clean it up, fix it up campaign

My following "Councillor Connection" about nuisance properties appeared in the Edmonton Examiner earlier this week:

Edmonton is a beautiful city, with a spectacular river valley, expansive green spaces, unique architecture and eclectic neighbourhoods.

However, in any city, particularly one that's growing as fast as Edmonton, there are always a few "nuisance properties." Any property that is untidy, unsightly, offensive, dangerous, or interferes with the enjoyment of neighbouring properties is considered a nuisance under  Edmonton's Community Standards Bylaw.

Come celebrate Canada Day in Mill Woods! #yeg

Come celebrate Canada Day in Mill Woods! #yeg

Canada Day is a great opportunity to reflect on how lucky we are. We live in a country that is welcoming and inclusive and provides all its inhabitants with an excellent quality of life. Volunteers are at the heart of what makes Edmonton a wonderful place, and we see that especially in the southeast where neighbours band together to improve and protect our community and to put on exceptional events.
