ABUNDANT COMMUNITIES EDMONTON (ACE)

Abundant Community Edmonton is a grassroots initiative fostering neighbour to neighbour relationships. The goal - to cultivate a culture of care and connection, increased sense of belonging and inclusion, and ultimately create a more healthy and livable city - one block at a time.


Once every couple of months, block connectors and interested neighbours meet in various locations to collaborate and encourage each other by sharing stories, struggles and successes in neighbouring. All are welcome! Join us by contacting coralee@forestterrace.org by email to attend a gathering or with any questions or support in neighbouring. Check out our Upcoming events page for the next ACE get together!

Child Reading in the Grass

THE IMAGINATION LIBRARY

Since November 2020, the Forest Terrace Heights Community League proudly runs The Heights Imagination Library in partnership with the Dollywood Foundation of Canada. The program puts books into the hands and hearts of children across the world and encourages families to spend time enjoying books together. Through this partnership, we provide a free, hand-selected, age-appropriate, high-quality book each month to children in our community from birth to age five. The books are personalized with each child's name and mailed directly to their home.


All children in our community under the age of five are eligible to participate as long as funding remains available. To register a child please fill out the registration form and return to Allison at allison@forestterrace.org.

SUPPORTIVE HOUSING DEVELOPMENT

Edmonton City Council has sold a parcel of land to Homeward Trust with intentions to build a supportive housing development in Terrace Heights at 6503 101 Avenue NW (just southeast of the Capilano Library and skatepark). We’ve received varied feedback from residents about the proposed development. To ensure we do not misrepresent the interests or concerns of community members, the Forest Terrace Heights Community League will remain neutral on the proposed development. 


We will continue to remain engaged and assist where possible to ensure any new developments are well integrated into the community. We encourage you to learn more about the development and provide your feedback directly to the City of Edmonton at https://www.edmonton.ca/programs_services/housing/terrace-heights.aspx. If you have questions or concerns about the approach of the community league, please reach out to us directly at info@forestterrace.org
