History of TRAC
A meeting was hosted by The City of Edmonton on April 27, 2002 to bring together citizens, Community Leagues and Home Owners Associations of the area. Out of the meeting, the concept of a president’s council/area council was born.
The group met over the course of the next 18 months and TRAC received it’s Certificate of Incorporation on December 1st, 2003.
