Mapping Our Future

May 2024

 

We’re looking to the future and need your help to make the most of what’s left of the City of Edmonton funding that has made We Belong in Jasper Place possible. We've committed to the City of Edmonton that we will complete this phase of the project by May 2025, allowing the City to transition out of the initiative and us to potentially transition into something new with our community. We’ve drafted two possible scenarios for how we think the remaining funds from the City of Edmonton could be used. This resource shares more about what each of these scenarios might look like.
