The Academy Road Business Association is looking for historical information on the area. I believe they plan to highlight certain areas of the street with historical plaques and information boards.

This event was hosted by Jon Gerrard (Manitoba Liberal Leader and MLA River Heights) and a presentation was done by Diane Orihel, member of a University of Alberta team who is currently studying the algal blooms on Killarney Lake.
