Community Resources from the City of Edmonton

The City's team of Neighbourhood Resource Coordinators supports a community's efforts to contribute to its own development.

Our Neighbourhood Resource Coordinator (NRC) will support Lendrum with:

  • strategic planning, implementing needs assessments and community involvement plans
  • supporting community-delivered recreation and social opportunities
  • event licensing
  • navigating City processes and connecting with other City staff who have the subject

The focus of work is on community development rather than recreation, with 4 core functions:

  • Facilitate Planning
  • Capacity-building
  • Connecting people, process and ideas
  • Enhancing Neighbourhood Liveability

Outdoor Permits Required

For events on any public park, a permit is required if the activities include anything beyond passive use.

Our Neighbourhood Resource Coordinator (NRC) for Lendrum, is able to issue any resident or community group a permit for no charge, for use of public parkland.


Not sure if you need a Parkland Event License?
Visit   Neighbourhood Event Planning :: City of Edmonton.

The Neighbourhood Resource Coordinator will connect back with you once the application is received.
