OPEN HOUSE FOR PALIKA BAZAAR REZONING

Wednesday, Dec. 13, 6 pm – 8:30 pm, St. Timothy’s School
(14330 117 St NW)

The City of Edmonton and developers behind “Palika Bazaar”, a new retail development planned at 6865  Ad Astra Blvd, are holding an open house to provide information and gather feedback around the rezoning application. It will be valuable for residents to attend to get more information about the plans and the proposed zoning change, and to make your thoughts known.

Earlier this year, Griesbach Community League declined to offer our support of the rezoning application (see link below). It was our feeling that the existing CNC zoning was put in place to maintain the character and standards we associate with our community, as set out in the Griesbach Neighbourhood Area Structural Plan. The CB1 zoning the developer is applying for would relax restrictions related to the type of business that could go in.

Click below to read the letter Griesbach Community League submitted to the City of Edmonton (pdf file). It indicates our reason for not actively endorsing the rezoning.

PDF:  GCL Palika Bazaar Development Response

While we did not come out in favour of changing the zoning, we do wish the developers nothing but success. It is our understanding that the development will go ahead regardless of the zoning decision. You may disagree. In any case, we do encourage you to attend to learn more and provide your input.

Griesbach Resident Survey Results Are In!

Griesbach Community League is pleased to share the summary from our 2017 Griesbach Resident’s Survey: What’s Great in Griesbach? & How Should We Grow?

To view the pdf of the survey results, please click the following link:
2017 Community Survey FINAL

Highlights:

  • We had 293 residents complete the survey, which was evenly split between resident who’ve lived here less than four years, and those who have been here longer.
  • 92% would recommend Griesbach as a place to live.
  • We had positive feedback on our current community events, and residents are interested in seeing even more!

The survey also asked residents for input around what our priorities should be for our next big project following the successful completion of our new playground at MGG School. We had some fantastic input and a number of great ideas. Griesbach Community League has put together a committee made up of interested residents to explore some of these ideas and determine which might be feasible, and what would be involved. They will bring their findings and recommendations to the Board of Directors. We hope to share those results in the new year.

A big thanks to everyone who participated in our survey. We’d like to recognize Shelby Corley and Carl Knowler for their hard work getting this survey together and compiling the results.

 

Griesbach Remembrance Day Ceremony

Join us at Patricia Park, Saturday, November 11, 10:30 am for a Remembrance Day Ceremony hosted by the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry.

It is always well attended, so we suggest you arrive early. Gault Blvd and Griesbach Parade will be closed to traffic and parking for a regimental parade featuring active PPCLI members based out of the Edmonton Garrison in Namao. The ceremony includes a reading of In Flander’s Fields, a prayer to the fallen and a moment of silence at 11:00 am.

Patricia Plaza was created in honour of the PPLCI, which was raised to join the Great War by Captain Andrew Gault in 1914. The unit has numerous battle honours to its credit, spanning from WWI to present day. These are listed on pedestals located at Patricia Park. There is also a memorial wall on site, with the names of PPCLI members who have given the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.

It is always a first rate event. All members of the public are welcome.
