Summerlea Elects a New Board

On May 14, Summerlea Community League held its Annual General Meeting at the Carrington Village West Social Centre. Special guests were Andrew Knack, our Ward 1 Councillor, and Lorne Dach, the MLA for Edmonton-McClung, accompanied by his constituency manager Ashley MacInnis.

President Christine Belter opened the meeting by welcoming the attendees and guests and taking us through the activities of the past year.

Next, Chase Jingles, our neighborhood liaison led us through the elections of the board for next year. Finding new people to volunteer for positions is a perennial issue and this year we will be reviewing our by-laws which places restrictions on the number of consecutive terms that someone can hold.

Andrew Knack came with a list of news and topics and responded to our questions. We talked about the City’s plans to reduce speed limits, photo radar policy, the West Edmonton Mall footbridge over 170th Street, West Edmonton Mall signage, the status of Summerlea Park as a surplus school site, and the LRT plans.
