Westmount...a community for everyone
Formed in 1919, Westmount is one of the oldest community leagues in Edmonton. The neighbourhood was developed originally in the 1910s as a professional neighbourhood catering to young people. Prior to the end of World War II, one in four of the current residences were constructed. Another quarter of the current residences were constructed between the end of World War II and 1960. Westmount has a rich heritage with the city of Edmonton and there are many, many past and current residents that have made a big difference in the community and the city at large. The history of the Westmount area, from the 1800s on, can be read in “Edmonton’s West Side Story,” available from the 124 Street and Area BRZ.
Westmount stretches from the river valley edge south of Jasper Avenue up to 111 Avenue, and from Groat Road across to 121 Street (124 Street south of Stony Plain Road).
The Westmount Community League board meets the third Tuesday of every month at 7:00 p.m. at Westmount Community Hall. Everyone is welcome to attend! If you plan to attend, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
INFORMATION ABOUT HOW THE LEAGUE OPERATES
The Westmount Community League is a member in good standing of the Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues and is registered as a Society under Alberta's Societies Act. As a registered Society, Westmount Community League is enabled to establish a volunteer Board of Directors, which is the primary governance vehicle for all matters related to the League and the custodian for the Westmount Community League bylaws.
In 2017, the Board of Directors adopted a Governance Model to more clearly define the roles, responsibilities, and obligations of the individual volunteer positions and groups which the Board of Directors has authorized to enable various types of community programming. Work to develop the Governance Model continues.
For a snapshot of general roles and responsibilities of individual positions on the Board of Directors, please have a look at these Position Profiles.
