The Spruce Avenue Community League Board is looking to fill the position of Civics & Neighbourhood Development Director.

What is this position?

  • The Civics & Neighbourhood Development Director monitors the civic concerns of the neighbourhood including new development and infill, Bylaw changes, and permit variances.
  • With the President, the Civics & Neighbourhood Development Director represents SACL at events/consultations with the City of Edmonton and reports to the board on matters relating to development in the neighbourhood.

Why is this position important?

Spruce Avenue is a mature neighbourhood with unique needs and challenges. As the City grows, our demographics are shifting toward a mix of young families and professionals, elderly homeowners, and students. With the City encouraging densification, infill is an ongoing issue. A Civics & Neighbourhood Development Director is aware of the development that is being proposed, can keep our board and residents up-to-date, and can communicate our neighbourhood’s concerns to the City.

What expertise do I need?

Knowledge of existing infill development bylaws is an asset, but not necessary! We require someone with clear communication skills who has an interest in becoming familiar with the bylaws.

 Note: Volunteering on the SACL Board waives your membership fee.
