The Hodgson Community League is not involved in anyway in sanctioning election signs or endorsing particular candidates. If you choose to endorse a particular candidate, it is your responsibility to determine if the sign meets the guidelines established by the City of Edmonton. Please see the following links for more information.
If you are a homeowner backing on to a public road (i.e. 23rd Ave, Rabbit Hill Road) both sides of the fence are your private property. If there has been a campaign sign posted on your private property without your permission, notify the City of Edmonton by calling 311.
Campaign signs must be removed within 3 days after Election Day.
Any property damage from campaign signs are the responsibility of the homeowner.
Last year, when the City was looking for efficiencies to reduce costs, the Community Sandboxes program was identified as a potential reduction. This decision was approved as part of the budget process in 2015 (see page 27), and will save approximately $300,000 in taxpayer dollars annually.
Instead of offering free sand for the public at community centres across the city, sand will now be provided at the five Roadway Maintenance yards. By putting them in front of the yards, the resources to fill them will be minimal.
Sand is available in front of the entrances of the following yards:
Central: 10517 - 95 Street
Northeast: 13003 - 56 Street
Southeast: 5409 - 59 Avenue
Southwest: 14710 Ellerslie Road (on the roadway beside the eco station)
Northwest: 14320 - 114 Avenue
By having sand in all the districts across the City, we are still making sure that it is available to those who need it, no matter where they live. Citizens can also visit a retailer to purchase an inexpensive bag of sand.
Additionally, we are offering sandboxes (with City of Edmonton identification removed) to community leagues should they wish to manage the boxes themselves. If a community league is interested in maintaining their own sandbox, a request can be put forth through this form: https://goo.gl/forms/kE9O15o2KSTLeHox1.
