    City Administration is working with Alberta Transportation to complete Calgary’s ring road, with construction beginning on the southwest link in the next two years. To plan for a complete road network, the right connections between the ring road and city infrastructure is necessary. There are 11 locations where we are designing and, in many cases, constructing roads that will connect the ring road to southwest Calgary.

    Some of the connections will be new – i.e: West Hills Way- west of the shopping mall on highway 8, while other projects will improve existing streets- i.e: widening Bow Trail

    to mitigate congestion. Well-designed links to the ring road will provide a number of

    benefits for you:

    • Faster and more efficient travel options
    • Improved traffic routing
    • Improved safety and access by putting the right traffic volumes onto the right roads
    • Reduced traffic impacts on nearby neighbourhoods

    These improvements will give you more options to travel around Calgary. For more information on how The City is improving connections to the ring road, please visit

    calgary.ca and search “ring road” or visit www.transportation.alberta.ca for information

    and the proposed plans for the ring road.

    Intelligent Futures wants your input!.

    They have created a project called #happyyc. Over the summer, they asked as many people as possible to map the places in Calgary that makes them happy. They’ve had a good level of response, but would love to see some more responses from Coach Hill! 

     

    The project will end October 15th and  they will analyze what they heard and share their insights with the community, giving us all a better sense of what places make Calgarians happy and some insights into common qualities they share.

    To provide your input go to http://happyyc.ca/  To complete a map, just go to “submit a map” and follow the steps.

    City crews and citizens are pulling together to deal with the aftermath of the recent storm.

    We would like to thank our community associations for working with us to respond to the needs of Calgarians who are dealing with tree debris.

    The City continues to have jumbo crews cleaning up priority debris in communities across Calgary.  The City’s focus remains on taking care of critical safety issues and ensuring public spaces are safe and accessible.

    The City Links program, in conjunction with CEMA, will be able to assist seniors and those who are physically challenged in Calgary with extensive tree damage on their properties due to the recent storm. Citizens can call 311 and ask for the “Seniors Home Maintenance” Service Request to process their requests.  Requests for service will be taken starting the weekend of September 13 and work will commence the following week.

    The City is also providing the following options to assist Calgarians with their clean up efforts:

    ·         All three City Landfills are operating under extended hours from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. until further notice to accommodate tree debris. Tipping fees continue to be waived for all tree debris that is not mixed with other garbage. 

    ·         Beginning Saturday, September 13, citizens can access all 33 of The City’s leaf & pumpkin drop-off locations to dispose of damaged tree limbs. 

    Calgary’s community spirit has continued to shine through, and citizens are encouraged to help neighbours by picking up, pitching in and pulling together.  Help those who are unable to clear small tree debris like small branches and leaves from their properties with what you can safely manage.  If you can help with the small debris, we can get to the big stuff faster.

    The City would like to thank all Calgarians for their patience as cleanup efforts continue throughout the coming days and weeks. This effort will take time.  We encourage everyone to stay safe.  Please don’t put yourself at risk.

    If you are not the correct contact for your group, please forward this information to the appropriate board member.
    If you have any questions, please contact The City of Calgary, Community & Neighbourhood Services – Lead, Community Recreation Coordinators, Tina Brillantes at 403-807-1401.
