9135 - 146 Street, Edmonton T5R 4L5 email@example.com
Situated along the North Saskatchewan river valley, Parkview community is a quiet, well-treed residential area in west-central Edmonton. Parkview Community centre, established in the mid 1950's, has recently been upgraded providing a modern, multi-use venue for both community events and third party rentals.
It’s a Parkview institution. Holiday baking, perogies and cabbage rolls. Swirling snow and sleigh rides, laughter and camaraderie. Unique and original gifts. It’s so authentic, even Santa comes to visit. This is the annual tradition known as the Parkview Christmas Craft & Bake Sale.
Every year in November, Parkview kicks off the Christmas season with this event for all ages. We invite you to join us to be a part of the warmest Parkview experience, where friends and neighbours meet.

PARKVIEW COMMUNITY LEAGUE BY-LAWS
By Ray Friedman & Bryan Sandilands
The original by-laws of the Parkview Community League, drafted in 1963, are in desperate need of revision. Many elements need to be rewritten, to accommodate notices via email, for example. Some clauses were relevant for the time but have little to no flexibility in an era of extensive commitments to other things in our lives. For example, procedures actually require monthly meetings of the general membership, not just the board. Proxies were not allowed in 1963 but are commonplace today, but we cannot yet allow for them. Should the board have the power to fill vacancies, for example? In other cases, the Annual General Meeting needs to have more power (e.g., to ratify board policy decisions.) There is a new Societies Act we must adhere to. There is also a new Tripartite Agreement between the City and the Federation of Community Leagues that sets out other requirements.
We need to have the new Proposed Bylaws ready to be discussed, and debated before the next AGM. Only a meeting of the full membership can approve Bylaw changes and it requires a 75% quorum of members to be present. So please, read the draft of the revised by-laws, compare it to the existing Bylaws (links below), and join the conversation.
RECREATIONAL FACILITIES PLANNING - Participate in a survey to assess the needs/wants of our community!
We would like to begin a preliminary conversation about land use and recreational facilities planning for the Parkview Park. The League has an opportunity to refurbish and / or redesign a portion of our park space and would like to ask for your thoughts on current and future facilities. Please take a few minutes to complete our survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/VT3LYXH Thank you for your time and feedback.
