AGM - November 3
Look for a postcard in the mail this week that looks like the image
below to give you all the information you need on the Annual General
Meeting of the Blackburne Creek Homeowner's Association.
The AGM will take place on Monday, November 3. As in previous years it
will be held at the Ellerslie Rugby Park at 11004 - 9 Avenue SW.
Registration begins at 6:30pm and the meeting commences at 7:00pm.
There will be a report on activities over the past year by the
association, financial statements will be presented and a new Board of
Directors will be elected. Please plan to attend and get involved in
your community. If you would like to volunteer for the Board, or have
any questions about the meeting, just drop us a line.
online payment system has been removed from the association's website
because those who have still not paid their fees owe interest, making it
difficult for the website to accurately calculate.
20 homeowners still owe fees, even though the payment deadline was July
31. They will all be getting final notices this week. If you are not
sure if you have paid your fees for the year, just let us know.
Keep the Pressure On
We have been getting a good response from residents who have let us know
that they have made their thoughts known about a lack of transit
service in the evenings. With cold weather approaching it's even more
important that ETS evening service is added, so many of our residents
will not have to walk up to a kilometer and a half to and from 111
For some background here is a copy of the letter we sent to Councillor Anderson about the issue in June and here is the response we received from Frank Zaprawa of Edmonton Transit. In response to the ETS letter, we sent an email to Bryan Anderson's office and here is the text of that email.
Please make your thoughts known to Frank Zaprawa at Edmonton Transit by
calling (780) 496-5783 or through the complaints page on the ETS website. Councillor Anderson can be reached by calling (780) 496-8110 or sending him an email.
If you have already made your thoughts known to the City, we appreciate your support.
We're approaching the middle of October and if you live along Blackburn
Drive and have a tree on your boulevard we are asking you to help
everyone by watering the tree a time or two before snow is on the
ground. Providing a deep watering now can make a real difference to a
tree in the spring. We have lost a few trees due to traffic accidents
over the past year or two, so keeping the trees we still have is a
priority. The association has been in contact with The City of Edmonton
to get trees replaced, but it's a long process to get replacement trees
