Work continues towards the development of a Community Hub for residents of Matt Berry and Hollick-Kenyon. We may have finally located a project partner; we will announce this once the information becomes publicly available.
If you know of a non-profit or cultural group that is looking for a permanent home, please put them in touch with us.
If you are able to commit to helping out with the project, we are still in need of volunteers. Any volunteer is welcome, but we are specifically looking for the following:
· Project management experience.
· Fundraising experience.
· Communications experience.
· Construction experience.
· Residents opposed to the project.
· Residents with mobility challenges.
· People who enjoy talking to their neighbours.
We are also looking for local businesses that are interested in sponsoring the project. Presently, we are looking for a sponsor for a neighbourhood mailout.
The Matt Berry Facility Steering Committee is considering renaming our project, to better reflect its community focus. A poll is available here and on our Facebook page. Please visit one of those places and make your voice heard.
We are still seeking a project partner. If you know of a non-profit group or cultural organization that is looking for a long-term home, please put them in contact with us.
We are also looking for volunteers who live in Matt Berry or Hollick-Kenyon to help with the project. We are especially looking for those with an engineering, project management, construction, or architecture background, and somebody to represent the seniors demographic.
If you’re interested in any of the above, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Matt Berry New Facility Committee continues to meet and work through the City of Edmonton process to construct a new community building near the Matt Berry Playground. The gym and classrooms would serve primarily people within walking distance. Parking concerns have been taken into consideration. If you’d like to learn more about the project, please contact email@example.com.
Another door-to-door survey will be conducted shortly. See page 2 here for survey questions.
If you are a resident who would like to be on a mailing list to keep informed of this project, please send your email address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your contact information would solely be used for this one specific purpose. Also, keep reading the community league newspaper and follow us on Facebook.
New committee members are always welcome!
McLeod Community League would like to acknowledge the land on which we are located is Treaty 6 territory, and is a traditional meeting ground, a travelling route and home for many Indigenous peoples such as the Cree, Blackfoot, Saulteaux, Metis and other Indigenous peoples.
