"T5M Connect is owned by residents in North Glenora who want to do a new and innovative residential development at the corner of 139 Street and 109 Avenue. As fellow North Glenora residents, we want to see developments that generate positive social, environmental and financial value for our community. We know that infill projects never please everyone but we genuinely do want to undertake community engagement that listens and tries to address concerns of our neighbours. This site is one way to keep everyone up-to-date on what we are doing."
David and Melissa Campbell
"Melissa and David Campbell have lived in Edmonton for most of their lives. After a brief stint living in Los Angeles, they returned to Edmonton and rented a home in North Glenora. They fell in love with the community and bought a home shortly after. They have since become actively involved in both the North Glenora Community League and Coronation School. They have 3 daughters who have attended Coronation School.
David is an experienced Multi-Family Builder/Developer and Melissa is a Speech-Language Pathologist and active community volunteer. They are passionate about building community and are excited to combine their passions and gifts to promote community development."
Ryan and Michelle Young
"Ryan and Michelle Young moved to North Glenora as renters in 2010 while Ryan attended university. They both quickly became involved in the community league and in Coronation school council where all three of their children attended. Two years later, they purchased a home and continue to be active in many activities within the neighbourhood. Michelle is a registered nurse and Ryan is an associate dean at one of Edmonton’s business schools."
Our Goals and Priorities
We hold three key priorities:
Our engagement process started in late May 2020 when we posted the sign at 10908 – 139 street asking for suggestions on what to do with the property. A number of people suggested that we purchase the adjacent house and do something more creative. We decided to do this and purchased the property. Additional North Glenora neighbours were included in the project and we decided to do this development under the name “T5M Connect” because it symbolizes our connection to the community.
Since then, we have been actively sharing our ideas with neighbours and asking for their comments. Many have provided excellent feedback which we are trying to incorporate into our ideas.
We also explored a number of zoning options including RF1, RF3 and RF5. While our proposal very much aligns with these zoning categories, the layout of our design means that it does not. As a result, we have decided to pursue a DC2 zoning. This means that the community will have additional opportunities to provide feedback on our proposal.
In early September, we met with the City of Edmonton planners for a pre-application meeting. We received a lot of excellent comments that further shaped our designs. A rezoning application has been made and City of Edmonton administration are currently reviewing it. The City Planner has indicated that this application will likely go to City Council for a decision in the second quarter of 2021.
