Boyle Street Community League Update

Meetings and Developments

The City and Downtown Business Association hosted a “Future of Edmonton’s Original Downtown” meeting at the beautiful Hyatt Hotel on June 6. It was well-attended and the first of several. The purpose was to continue to move ahead with the Quarters Development Project in Boyle Street.

The Edmonton People in Need Shelter Society project is moving ahead on schedule. I am watching this project almost daily and am impressed with the skill and dedication of the workers on site. I feel it will be a welcome addition to Boyle Street. I am continuing to monitor several developments in the community. We are hopeful that some of them will begin soon.

I am happy that more residents of Boyle Street are becoming interested in the goings-on in the community. Make sure you have a look at the calendar in this paper for future events and programs here in Boyle Street. I wish you all a happy and safe summer!

Alf is the President of the Boyle Street Community League.
