SPANN (Stony Plain Road and Area News Network) is a community newspaper serving the neighbourhoods of Canora, Britannia-Youngstown, Glenwood, and West Jasper/Sherwood. It is published by the Stony Plain Road and Area Business Association with the support of Jasper Place Revitalization/City of Edmonton.
SPANN is a print and online communications platform intended to connect communities and enhance a sense of place. It seeks to engage area stakeholders (residents, business owners, and agency representatives) with news and information about the area in a way that positively presents Stony Plain Road/Jasper Place as a location that is desirable to live, work, attend events, dine, and shop.
Our first issue was published in April of 2020. Subsequent issues in 2020 are scheduled to be published in June, September, and December. Editorial deadlines are May 12th, August 12th, and November 12th.
