    On October 8, 2012 the Sirocco bus terminal will close and some bus routes in the area will be re-routed to 69 Street S.W.  The closure will allow the Sirocco Park and Ride to be restored and expanded in preparation for the opening of the West LRT. 

    During this time, limited parking will still be available at Sirocco Park and Ride.  Limited parking will also be available at the 69 Street Park and Ride.  Transit customers are encouraged to walk, bike or take a bus to the 69 Street bus terminal.

     

    The bus routes that will be affected include routes 301, 401, 439, 453 and 456. 

    There will be no changes to routes 2, 53, 67 and 438.  New route maps are available on calgarytransit.com/westlrt

     

    Rider’s Guide brochures are also available that contain all of the route changes and parking maps.  The Rider’s Guides will be available on the local buses, handed out at Sirocco Park and Ride and available on the Calgary Transit website.   I have attached an electronic version.

     

    These new bus routes will be in effect until the West LRT opens.

    The City of Calgary is hosting a focus group session, which will help inform a standardized engagement protocol for all new City of Calgary Affordable Housing Developments. The intent is to create transparent and consistent expectations between The City, community associations, interest groups and alderman on how engagement will take place surrounding new affordable housing developments.

     

    The City of Calgary would like to invite community members to share their thoughts on affordable housing in Calgary, what some of the common community perceptions surrounding affordable housing developments are, communities' expectations of how they wish to be engaged during the process, and what they need to know in order to evaluate the proposal.

     

    The focus group will take place on Monday, September 17 from 8 pm to 9:30 pm at the Crescent Heights Community Centre, 1101-2nd St. NW.

     

    Contact Justin Rebello if you have any questions and to register (by September 14) at justin.rebello@calgary.ca or at (403) 268-5413.

     

    Refreshments will be provided!
