The committee has been formed to deal with issues such as infill development which greatly affect Bonnie Doon. For more information, contact our Civics Chairperson Ed at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A subset of the board of the Bonnie Doon Community League submitted this statement to the City of Edmonton's Evolving Infill initiative.
We understand that Edmonton's growth means the City needs to increase population density near its core. Bonnie Doon is a core neighbourhood and that means we will face pressure to increase our density. Many infill projects are multi-family residences. Most of those fit well with existing properties while some are great, hulking anomalies. Bonnie Dooners feel strongly about
- preserving greenspace, especially our mature trees
- encouraging the development of small businesses that service our community
- preserving property values through bylaws and guidelines that preserve setbacks, restrict height, require large projects to invest in facades & greenspace that preserve the character of our neighbourhood, etc.
