Candy Cane Lane Research Project

Do you live on Candy Cane Lane?
 
Candy Cane Lane Research Project
 
Researchers at MacEwan University are looking for people to interview and discuss Candy Cane Lane. Our goal is to learn more about why people participate (or not) in Candy Cane Lane, and also gain a better understanding of how to promote volunteer initiatives in other communities.
 
If you are interested, please email us (rodney.schmaltz@macewan.ca) or feel free to call (780-633-3674). We would be happy to set up a time for the interview at your home, or at a nearby coffee shop. Coffee is on us!
 
Thank you for considering being a part of our research.

Street Safety Survey from EFCL – Closes December 1

We are writing to inform you that at the request of some leagues, the deadline to complete our Street Safety Survey has been extended to December 1, 2019. The results of this survey will be used to inform a report on Community League preferences for managing traffic safety that will be shared with Community Leagues, City Administration, and City Council. We will report back individual findings as well as city-wide findings by December 18.

The survey is comprehensive and covers a wide range of topics so that the EFCL can develop a better understanding of how community members experience their neighbourhoods. The survey takes between 15 and 20 minutes to complete. Find the survey here.

Edmontonians have been calling for a reduction in residential speed limits for over a decade. On May 14, 2019, City Council advanced discussions to reduce residential and collector speed limits within our communities. To help Community Leagues understand the impetus for these changes, the EFCL has developed the Neighbourhood Street Safety Handbook.

As the City of Edmonton endeavors to complete this work, we are asking Community Leagues to bring their local knowledge to the discussion. We want to know your thoughts on potential speed limit reductions and how improved traffic safety can improve neighbourhood liveability within your community.

You can share your thoughts with us by completing our survey! For more robust neighbourhood data, please share the survey widely. To make things simple, you can share our twitter or facebook post or simply copy and paste this link→ https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/EFCLtrafficsafety

You can learn more about this project at efcl.org/traffic-safety.  If you have any questions or comments, please email planning1@efcl.org.

Community League Day at Crestwood!

Community League Day!
FACEBOOK EVENT: https://www.facebook.com/events/525711094917046/September 21 is Community League Day and we would like to invite you to join your community, friends and neighbours for a Potluck dinner starting at 5pm.

If your house number is even please bring a main dish and if your house number is odd, then please bring an appetizer, side dish or dessert. Enough to feed 7-10 people. Or you can bring $10 and we will order pizza depending on how much food we have.

We will also have some colouring sheets and markers for kids and playing cards and board games to play and (all ages) and feel free to bring you own as well.

As usual we will have an assortment of beer, wine and other drinks, drink tickets will be one for $5 or five for $20. Juice boxes will be $1.

We have also set up a Facebook event page if you’d like to let everyone know what you’re bringing or you can just surprise us!

As always we can’t do everything on our own and rely on the help of volunteers. For this event we are looking for the following:

Foyer desk (sell drink tickets + take $10 if someone is not bringing a dish): 30 min shifts from 5-7pm
Bar (serve drinks and take drink tickets, after 7 also sell drink tickets): 30 min shifts from 5-10pm

Please email christin.bryant@icloud.com if you can help us out for 1/2 hour. Thank you!
