The Neighbourhood Block Connector is a program that encourages and empowers residents to come together in a more meaningful way.

Crescent Heights Community Association (CHCA) is connecting the neighbourhood! The community of Crescent Heights have engaged, supportive and invested residents who are looking to build a more inclusive and vibrant neighbourhood.

The Neighbourhood Block Connector is inspired by Abundant Communities Edmonton (ACE) where each neighbourhood in Edmonton, ‘cultivates a culture of care and connection, increase the sense of belonging and inclusion’. CHCA is inspired, and we’re going to adapt the program to our village, as a flagship inner community we can’t wait to see what happens next!
