How Revitalization is Collaborating Locally With Residents and Stakeholders
Balwin and Belvedere are vibrant and diverse communities and the established teams provide a safe and welcoming environment for all individuals to participate in revitalizing the neighbourhoods.
A Neighbourhood Revitalization Guiding Team has been formed to carry out the implementation of the Revitalization Strategy. The team is made up of 12 representatives from Balwin and Belvedere (residents, business owners, community non-profit agencies etc.) Their purpose is to provide leadership, support and direction on the implementation of the strategy.
Community led project teams have formed with a number of community members (residents, business owners, community non-profit agencies etc.) who have stepped forward to implement some of the projects identified in the strategy.
A Community Capital project team has also formed to support the Revitalization’s Capital investment process. Their purpose is to plan and support the process of new infrastructure projects in the Revitalization area.
A City of Edmonton Community Development team has also convened to work collaboratively to enhance community development in the Revitalization area. This team is made up of the Neighbourhood Resource Coordinator, Community Development Social Worker, Safety Liaison with the Neighbourhood Empowerment Team, Community Relation Advisors from Community Standards and Neighbourhoods, Abundant Community Edmonton, Revitalization Coordinator and others.
