Passing of Councillor Bryan Anderson

Bryan Anderson, longtime Edmonton City Councillor and friend of the Oak Hills Community League, passed away at the age of 78 earlier this month. Our condolences and thoughts are with Bryan’s wife, Sharin, and family during this difficult time.


A beloved Edmonton high school teacher and sports coach, Bryan continued to champion the growth of sports and recreation in his 19 years of public service as city councillor for Ward 5 and Ward 9. Bryan was instrumental in the construction of world-class sport and recreation infrastructure across Edmonton, including our own Terwillegar Recreation Centre. In 2019, the park beside the Terwillegar Recreation Centre was renamed the Bryan Anderson Athletic Grounds to honour his contributions and he was inducted to the city’s sports hall of fame last June.


The Oak Hills Community League was fortunate to work with and learn from Bryan in his six consecutive terms as city councillor. His passion for community building and the incredible impact he made as an educator, coach and public servant live on with his legacy.

June 20th, 2020 2-5PM

Join your neighbours, bring a brush, and refresh a stretch of our street-facing and park-facing fences around the community!

Peeling paint, discoloration and non-uniform paint application makes our community look less desirable, encourages graffiti and shows an apathy to maintain our properties. We will be observing physical distancing, and gathering maximums.

Community Paint Day is proudly sponsored by Duraguard Fence. Please consider contacting Duraguard Fence if you need help building, painting or repairing your fences...residential, commercial and industrial.

PLUS Bring your own chalk to contribute your OWN art on a square of the sidewalk nearby!

Please comply with all current health regulations while out walking near this event. Stay safe and happy everyone!

Neighbourhood Cleanup

Spring is here, with its wonderful weather, new blooms, and green grass, and the annual blowing tumbleweeds of litter.

Oak Hills Community League has 5 Capital City Cleanup kits to hand out, which include:

  • A hands-free litter grabber

  • Bags, gloves and other supplies

While out on our walks, it would be easy to bring along a picker and tidy up the paths, walkways, and streets as we go! We envision this evolving over the season into a more regular group, or club of community beautification champions.

Learn about Permaculture

Join this FREE seminar for an informative workshop on transforming your yard into a sustainable, food-producing and ecological oasis.

There will be lots of time for questions and to workshop your ideas and plans for your yard and for your neighbourhood!

Nextdoor is a platform that is being used by over 200 neighbors in our community to share local recommendations, items for sale, safety tips, crime awareness, and local events. It is also a great way to get to know one another better and to stay current on what is happening in your area.

Nextdoor verifies community members are actual residents. So you can control what content you see, as well as who sees your content by sharing just to your neighbourhood, or also to nearby neighbourhoods (Terwilleger, Riverbend, Hodgson, etc).

Have Your Say - Density/Zoning Changes

Posted June 20, 2018

Urgent Input Needed

City of Edmonton administration has proposed changes to the Zoning Bylaw 12800. The revisions contained in this amendment that affect Oak Hills include:

  • Making semi-detached and duplex housing permitted uses in the (RF1) Single Detached Residential Zone.

  • Removing the current location restrictions for duplexes and semi-detached in these zones

  • Creating an exemption to allow semi-detached housing to be subdivided into its two halves, regardless of previous subdivisions on a site

Based on what we have been told, the City has already conducted public consultation on this subject. We were NOT aware of this consultation, and our residents share this feeling. We have heard concerns that the public consultation process has not been transparent and that the City has not communicated the potential consequences or safeguards to existing homeowners in terms of traffic, architectural, HOA membership, etc.

Oak Hills Community League has been asked to submit comments by July 9, 2018.

In an effort to provide more accurate comment, we would like to hear from all residents in our area, including nearby neighbourhoods. Time is very tight here, please complete the survey as soon as possible.

Survey closes the morning of July 8th
