Civics includes activities related to housing, planning, zoning, and development, and is the largest of all our League’s committees. With large projects in the works, including the Evolving Infill strategy, the Flood Mitigation strategy, and the Main Street Overlay, changes are coming for Parkallen. The city holds engagement events around most developments and planning changes. Your Civics committee advocates for the best interests of Parkallen at these events, and at project-specific meetings throughout the year. We are dedicated to working with you to ensure your insights and concerns are heard.
To stay current with our work, follow the Parkallen Community League on Facebook, and read the League newsletter.
If you’re interested in helping out, we have volunteer opportunities ranging from small, one-time projects to longer term involvement.
Contact your Civics committee: firstname.lastname@example.org
To find out more about the Missing Middle and how this will influence future development in Parkallen, please attend the Missing Middle Open House.
The Main Streets Overlay (MSO) has been in effect since September 2017 and was intended to provide guidelines to commercial redevelopment on arterial roads across the City. Communities along 109 Street expressed concern soon afterward, that the MSO impacted many of the regulations communities helped develop under the 109 Street ARP and that the MSO had been applied to Parkallen from 65 Avenue to 68 Avenue on 111 Street.
Do you want a say in how your community is planned? Do you know what to do if you are concerned about a neighbouring development and its impact on your property? Are you up to date on all the recent changes made to city zoning laws? All interested community members are invited to learn about all these issues and more at our upcoming Introduction to Civics presentation, presented by Bev Zubot.
We are looking for individuals interested in joining our Civics Committee to represent Parkallen and promote the best qualities of life in our community. This includes being actively involved in positive growth and development in Parkallen.
The recent parking restrictions on 112a Street have pushed parking further into Parkallen. This is a concern, especially the increased traffic in front of the school. In order to extend the parking restrictions further into Parkallen, a petition will need to be brought to all the residents on impacted streets.
