UPDATE ON THE BOARDS MEETING WITH THE MAYOR RELATED to FIRST PLACE PROGRAM (FPP)

The Twin Brooks Community League (TBCL) Board of Directors requested a meeting with Mayor Don Iveson to discuss the boards concerns with the development of Twin Brooks Green Space and soccer fields along 12th avenue. The Mayor took the time to listen to our concerns and has indicated he will go over all the subject material and will respond back to the community. The City will also issue a formal summary of the meeting in the coming weeks. A few key points from the board on the meeting below.

  •  The City received our messages that our community and our park are unique and present some challenges.
  •   The City has agreed to review the matter and conduct more research.  No commitment was made that a change would be made, but the willingness to review and research is positive.
  •  We will continue our dialogue with the City.  Our next step  will be determined once we receive their response to the issues we raised.
  • We will continue to be as transparent as we can be with our residents – posting materials on our website when they are ready to do so
  • A commitee has been formed by the board to deal specifically with this issue.Community members who may be interested in joining this committee can email programs@twinbrooks.ca for more information.

RE: Twin Brooks Community League First Place Property development concerns
 
Mike Lanteigne, G.G.XII., C.R.C. President
Twin Brooks Community League Edmonton, Alberta
 
 
Dear Mayor Iveson,
 
On behalf of my fellow Twin Brooks Board of Directors and I whom met with you, Mr. Kelly, and your team from Strategic Planning earlier this week, I thank you for your time, attention, and concern with respect to the opposition our community residents have over the First Place Property development in Twin Brooks.
 
We understand the value of the FPP program and the role it plays in fulfilling the City of Edmonton’s goal to achieve higher residential density in mature neighborhoods.
 
We do feel encouraged that you and your civic departments will be able to further review the information we provided in order to reassess the special and unique circumstances the community of Twin Brooks faces with the FPP program and the erosion of very limited park space.
 
We look forward to hearing from you once you and your team have had an opportunity to discuss and consider any possible alternatives for the relocation or modification to the FPP development in Twin Brooks.
 
Thank you again Don – you involvement in this community issue is greatly appreciated.
 
 
Sincerely,
 
-Mike
