  • Avenue Edmonton’s Best Neighbourhoods Survey

    The survey should take about six minutes to complete. Once the survey results are compiled, we use third-party data collected by a variety of groups including the City of Edmonton, the Edmonton Police Service and Walk Score, among others, to rank Edmonton’s neighbourhoods.

    If you have any questions, please contact Steven Sandor, Avenue Edmonton’s editor, at steve@odvodpublishing.com.

    Thank you for your time and help.
  • The first question is about the various characteristics and amenities people may consider when judging the desirability of a neighbourhood to live in.

    When you say a neighbourhood is the Best Place to Live in Edmonton, reorder the following characteristics to rank them from the MOST important to you to LEAST important to you, where the MOST important characteristic is at the top of the list and the LEAST important characteristic is at the bottom. For example, if you believe having lots of trees is the most important characteristic, select that characteristic and move it to the top of the list and if you think having lots of schools is the least important, select and move it to the bottom of the list.

  • Walk Score: measures the number of errands you can do on foot

    Transit Score: measures the "usefulness" of the transit routes, the number of stops and the frequency of transit in the neighbourhood

    Public recreation facilities are operations such as pools, recreation centre, and art centres

    By Community schools, we're referring to EPSB or ECSD schools open to residents of the neighbourhood.
