Terwillegar Drive Planning – Call to Action! - Survey extended to February 15

Terwillegar Drive Planning – Call to Action!


It’s very important that we all make our voices heard – THIS WILL AFFECT OUR COMMUNITY!

The City has prepared an updated concept plan to convert Terwillegar Drive into a freeway between Whitemud Drive and Anthony Henday Drive. There is a proposal (North Section Option B) that is being presented that would limit our community’s access to and from Whitemud Drive in order to save money in the reconstruction of the Whitemud/Terwillegar interchange.

The entire study and survey can be found at the City’s website at https://edmonton.ca/terwillegardrivestudy

Everyone in the Greater Riverbend area and the city acknowledges our Bulyea Road/40th Avenue interchange as being the highest priority intersection to be upgraded on Terwillegar Drive. After waiting for over 40 years to have the interchange upgraded, we are disappointed and astounded they would float a design which removes so many of our entrance and egress options. Option B has enraged the majority of stakeholders in our community; residents and businesses alike.

It’s important that we all take the survey that the City has offered. The survey speaks to four options for the development of Terwillegar Drive. Two for the North Section and two for the South Section. Before you take the survey, please study these options. It should be noted that once in the survey, you can move forwards and backwards in the survey to understand all the questions and context before providing your answers. 

Brookview Community League (BCL) and the Brookview Community Association (BCAL) urge our residents to fill out the survey as often as they can. This is so important to our community that everyone in the household (husbands, wives, grown children, etc) should fill out the survey. Please note, the survey deadline has been extended to February 15, 2018.

Construction to Begin Summer, 2017

Dear Brookview Residents,
(Note: This was approved at the April 18 City Council Meeting)
On March 10th, 2016 the City of Edmonton sent all residents of Brookview (Bulyea Heights) a NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING regarding Bylaws:  17576 and 17577.  Unfortunately, the City provided no historical context, and the notice has resulted in more questions than answers.
The questions we are fielding from Brookview residents center around the legality of the rezoning of the original surplus school sites or the concept of self determination, as if our community had a say in what to do with the surplus school sites.  The actual Bylaws relate to combining the existing, already rezoned sites into one larger site, thus saving the more desirable green space near the Bulyea Road/Buchanan Road four-way stop.

Home Owner Association Membership

With Condominium Corporations, Community Leagues, The City of Edmonton and Home Owner Associations (HOA), it is easy to get confused about who takes care of what in your neighbourhood.  This article is meant to offer some awareness about Home Owner Associations as they are a growing trend in Edmonton.

Bulyea's Carriage at Fort Edmonton

This carriage was used by Alberta's first Lieutenant Governor for formal occasions.  This Carriage has been adapted as the symbol for our community and the logo for our home owners association.  Recently all the street name blades were replaced in the neighbourhood and this symbol was used in all the signs.
