encourage those interested in getting involved to attend the meeting
tonight and let your name stand for election to make our community a
better place. If you have any questions about the meeting, just drop us a line.
colder weather, snow and ice on their way, it's a good time to remind
everyone that the speed limit in Blackburne Creek is 50 kilometres an
hour and this includes the hill leading to and from 111 Street.
It's also a good time to point out that two or three trees along
Blackburn Drive were destroyed last winter by drivers who had lost
control of their vehicles.
From time to time, police have posted a mobile speed detection device
along Blackburn Drive at the request of the homeowners' association.
Those Pesky Beavers
Once again this fall beavers have been active in the creek area below the playground.
As they build dams, mature trees disappear next to the creek and the association has been asked to do
something to help save as many trees as possible. The association has
been in contact with the City of Edmonton to seek assistance, but is
also asking concerned residents to contact the City directly as well. A
call from a resident in the area about trees being destroyed by beavers
carries as much weight as a call from the association. If you are
concerned with the damage being done by beavers call the City at 311 and
lodge a complaint.
In the past the City has trapped beavers and moved them to other areas
along the creek, but Blackburne Creek is a great place to live and the
beavers seem to know it too.
