A brand created for the City of Edmonton on behalf of Responsible Hospitality Edmonton. Responsible Hospitality Edmonton (RHE), aims to promote safe, thriving, late-night environments in Edmonton by planning, managing and policing the many aspects of hospitality zones throughout the city.
With this goal in mind, RHE recently engaged the Association of Town Center Management (ATCM) group in the United Kingdom (UK) to bring the accreditation program, Purple Flag to Edmonton. ATCM has accredited over 60 town centres in the UK and Europe. If accredited, Edmonton’s Warehouse District will be the first Purple Flag accredited community in North America.
Edmonton’s pursuit of Purple Flag accreditation has allowed for the RHE team to work with an established committee to understand the intimate aspects of the program and determine value for all Edmontonians. RHE is appreciative of the 104th Street Action Committee and it’s volunteers for exploring the framework under the banner ‘Chasing the Purple Flag’. Currently, volunteer teams in the 104th Street/Warehouse District are evaluating the areas safety, discussing initiative outcomes and bringing attention to community work. RHE would not be able to undertake the evaluation of the program without the time and support of the stakeholders in and around 104th Street.
