"I decided to go downtown, to be downtown.

You don’t need a car to do everything. Some of the simpler things - like going to groceries, going to the post office, that kind of stuff.

To just be able to leave out the front door with my bike and go ride. It’s just really easy."

"I’ve been here a year. Moved here for work from Vancouver. I’m from Calgary. I wouldn’t have stayed if I didn’t like it. I think living in this area has a big impact on liking it. The cafes that are close by. I do walk to work.

Walking is a good way to see a city and learn a lot about it. I didn’t have a car for seven years so I got into the habit of walking everywhere. It’s important to me to be able to walk and have everything close by."

I grew up in the Netherlands, came to outside of Edmonton near Devon in 2002, and did my degree at the University of Alberta. Immediately after graduating, I went to San Francisco. Thought I was going to stay there, then I ran into visa problems.

So I ended up back here. I came back with the intention of just staying with my parents and getting my next career move sorted out.

I ended up moving here, to Oliver at the end of March.

I don't think of it as being trapped in Edmonton.

There's a lot of stuff with the development of the Brewery District, so many local businesses you can support and there's a real mix of people here. It's really diverse.

I can walk to so many things. I don't have to worry about having a car.

I just fell in love with the neighbourhood.
