March is upon us already and our league is working on many diverse projects.  Read on for more about that!

One of the ongoing projects we are proud of is our community magazine, The Yards. Recently, this collaborative magazine was nominated for several awards in writing. Also, our humble community magazine has been nominated for BEST NEW MAGAZINE in Alberta. An impressive feat, to say the least. Over the past year we have listened to our community and readers and have been diligent about the content of our magazine. From things like font size to editorial content, we have heard you and made significant changes to our magazine. March's issue is hot off the presses and we hope you enjoy it and feel proud of the spirit of this collaborative little quarterly.  Wish us luck on the nominations!

About the Imagine Jasper Avenue project:
Jasper Avenue is Edmonton’s premier Main Street, connecting the West End to Downtown through the historic and diverse neighbourhood of Oliver. The section of Jasper Avenue from 109 Street to 124 Street is slated for full reconstruction beginning in 2019. This presents the opportunity to develop a comprehensive vision for the avenue which will direct the design of improvements and upgrades. The purpose of the Imagine Jasper Avenue project is to envision an innovative, vibrant and relevant streetscape that will strive to balance the needs of the community, commuters, businesses and visitors.
