Roxboro Community Background

Roxboro is a small inner-city located in the southwest sector of the city. The Roxboro area was annexed to the city 1907. The Roxboro subdivision began to develop in 1912 but due to the real estate bust the neighbourhood wasn’t built-out until the 1920s.
It is surrounded by natural amenities with the Elbow River forming the northern edge of the community and bluffs the east and southern edges. The predominant form of building in the area is single family dwellings. Residents have direct access to downtown, which is only 2. 5 kilometers north of Roxboro.

@Drewmania21 @AlbertaParty We thought about borrowing Young Guns from the early 2000's Flames, but this seemed more "now" 😁 #ableg
