Calls for public engagement: Urban forest, aging, La Perle and Belmead renewal

· The Pulse

Here are opportunities to help shape municipal planning about Edmonton's urban forest, renewal in La Perle and Belmead, and aging in Strathcona County.

  • Healthy Aging Survey — Strathcona County has begun a three-phase engagement process to understand the needs and priorities of people aged 55 or older. The results will shape a vision for healthy aging in Strathcona County and inform recommendations to council. Residents in the age range can complete a survey until May 10.
  • 2024 Garbage Can Design Contest — The City of St. Albert is holding an annual contest to beautify the city, with this year's theme focusing on the role of pollinators. Residents can review designs submitted by students and vote on their favourite before May 10.
  • Urban Forest Survey: Trees on Private Property — The City of Edmonton seeks feedback about trees on private property, which will be included in an upcoming report on Edmonton's urban forest. The information may inform future projects and programs related to trees on private property. A survey will be open until May 20.
  • La Perle and Belmead Neighbourhood Renewal (planning and design) — The City of Edmonton has begun planning and design work to renew La Perle and Belmead. Open houses will be held May 9 in La Perle and May 14 in Belmead. Residents of both neighbourhoods can review design options and complete an online survey until May 21.
