Current News & Events
LRT UPDATE AND MEETINGS
The Valley Line is an urban-style 27 km LRT line that will operate between Mill Woods in southeast Edmonton and Lewis Farms in west Edmonton. The project is divided into two stages, the first of which is currently under construction between downtown and Mill Woods.
The second stage of the Valley Line — a 14 km light-rail extension that will be built between downtown and Lewis Farms — is a top priority infrastructure project. Valley Line West will play an integral role in achieving the City’s vision for sustainable transportation that will help connect Edmonton’s communities.
In 2016, Valley Line West received funding through the Government of Canada’s Public Transit Infrastructure Fund (PTIF) to review and refine the preliminary design that was completed in 2013. This work will position the City to be ready to start building the line when additional funding becomes available. This an important step, as it will acknowledge any changes that have occurred since the original work was done and will position the project to be ready for construction when additional funding becomes available.
The review includes the assessment of two high-volume intersections (149 Street/Stony Plain Road and 178 Street/87 Avenue) to ensure the crossings planned for the intersections are still appropriate.
The City wants to hear from residents — particularly those who live, work and commute in and through these areas — on any issues and opportunities to consider for the crossing assessments.
A public engagement session will be held for each crossing. Details are as follows:
149 Street/Stony Plain Road
Wednesday, June 21
6:00 - 8:30 p.m.
West End Christian Reformed Church
10015 – 149 Street

WEST EDMONTON TRANSMISSION UPGRADE PROJECT
My name is Laine Watson, and I am a consultation lead from EPCOR working on the West Edmonton Transmission Upgrade Project. The project involves proposing to construct a new 72 kilovolt (kV) above-ground transmission line from the Poundmaker substation (18944 105 Ave) to the Meadowlark substation (15404 84 Ave) to improve the reliability of our transmission system, reducing the risk of outages to our customers. We are sending you this email as the Aldergrove Community League is located in the vicinity of the routing options currently under consideration, as depicted in the attached project information package.
We are currently in the early stages of the regulatory process and completing consultation with stakeholders near the project. Feedback gathered during the public consultation program will be used to help determine a preferred and alternative alignment. EPCOR will be distributing a project update package later this summer that will outline any changes to the project (including revised timelines), and identify our preferred and alternative route. This project update will include EPCOR’s contact information so stakeholders can continue to communicate any additional project related questions or concerns they may have after reviewing these materials.
Your feedback is important to us, please review the attached information at your earliest convenience. All of the feedback we receive from stakeholders will be considered and included in our Facility Application to the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC), the independent body responsible for reviewing and approving proposed transmission projects in the province. For more information regarding the AUC’s regulatory process please find the following link to a brochure entitled Public involvement in a proposed utility development.
Please let me know if you think it would be of benefit for EPCOR to attend a community league meeting and provide a brief presentation regarding the West Edmonton Transmission Upgrade Project. This could be used as an opportunity to discuss the project and respond to any questions or concerns that the community league may have after reviewing the information included in this email. Please feel free to contact me at the phone number below for further information.
Thank you for your time.

PRIMROSE PARK REHABILITATION PROJECT NEEDS ASSESSMENT
Dear Aldergrove Residents:
The City of Edmonton currently has Primrose Park (located at 8304 188 Street) rated in “fair” condition. This means as the playground ages and the features of the playground reach the end of their life cycle they will be removed. In effort to maintain and ensure that the park remains an exciting and fun place for our children to use, we need to make significant improvements to the park in the form of a complete rebuild.
A committee has been created and is operating and being governed by the Aldergrove Community League. The first step to reach our goal of making Primrose Park a safe, fun and exciting place to be is to complete a Needs Assessment. This Needs Assessment is to determine what will be done as a part of the project to improve the overall condition of the park and meet the needs of all community members.
We encourage everyone to fill out this short survey and return the survey to the Primrose Park Rehabilitation Committee. Once the survey has been received by the committee, you will be entered into a draw for several prizes (yet to be determined). This survey will be available in two formats. The paper version of the assessment is available to print and mail in by clicking here.
The second survey format is an electronic version that you can complete online at: https://goo.gl/TnG9ez. While you complete the paper copy of the assessment, example pictures of the different types of playground equipment can be found on our Primrose Park Facebook Page at: www.facebook.com/primroseparkrebuild.
Completed paper surveys can be returned:
1. In person at Aldergrove Community League
2. By fax to: Aldergrove Community League 780-489-6283
3. Scan and email to: email@example.com
4. By mail to: Aldergrove Community League
Edmonton AB, T5T 1X1
Your time and participation is greatly appreciated and will provide much needed information to get this project started. Winners for the draws for completed surveys will be contacted by July 1, 2017.
