  3. There are literally dozens of museums, large and small, that tell the history of Edmonton and area yet you rarely see anything on the forum about them. This forum is C2E's attempt to fix that error. History is the foundation we build our future on and our community, like a home, needs a strong foundation to last. Rather than allow it to be overwhelmed, ignored or left to the persistent few lets create a section where it has it's own voice. Working with the area Museums and Edmonton Heritage Council C2E could create a history/heritage section that would give voice and story to the amazing and exciting history of Edmonton and allow smaller museums to have a voice and promote themselves to the community.

  5. How do we identify the areas where new schools are required? How can our existing schools be renewed so that they remain sustainable? How can school space be transformed into valuable space for the community when student enrolment is insufficient to keep the facility open? These questions will form the basis for dialogue with parents, EPSB staff and other interested stakeholders over the next several months. The answers to these questions will help the Edmonton Public School Board (EPSB) to develop a plan for managing student space now and into the future. There is an opportunity for YOU to become involved in these discussions, in a variety of ways.

  9. Edmonton is a city of parks, including the longest urban park in North America threading through the North Saskatchewan river valley. There are hundreds of parks and recreation areas in the metro region, and this forum offers the opportunity to discuss them, suggest improvements, raise concerns and spread the word.
