    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!

    At the beginning of June we got to work creating a contest to involve the Coach Hill, Patterson Heights community and design a new logo. We wanted a fresh new image that would send residents directly to our website. The community voted for the new logo at our 4th Annual Stampede Breakfast, and a winner was decided.

     

    Thirty entries were received, and an additional nine kids’ entries were submitted. Over $700 in donations were given from local businesses, to award a winner, runner up, second runner up, and best kid’s entry with a gift basket. The Coach Hill, Patterson Heights community association board of directors would like to extend a HUGE thank you to all of our generous sponsors, and to everyone who entered our contest. Also thank you to Nadine and Shauna for all of your hard work in putting this contest together.

    About Riley & McCormick

    Founded in 1901, Riley & McCormick was providing Calgary Alberta district residents with the finest of harness, saddles and Western wear before the province of Alberta was incorporated in 1905. Riley & McCormick has been present at every Calgary Stampede since 1912. Not just interested in supplying equipment for the animals at "The Greatest Show on Earth", Eneas McCormick was one of those concerned enough to be a founder of the Cowboy Protective Association for the financial benefit of injured rodeo competitors.

    History has passed by the doors of Riley & McCormick stores - pioneer missionary Father Lacombe for supplies for his orphanage; military saddles ordered for the Russian Cavalry in W.W.I; Edward, Prince of Wales, to equip his huge EP ranch; decades of entries in the Calgary Stampede Parade, a presentation cowboy outfit for Prince Charles - all part of Western Canadian pioneering and pride in Canada.

    The grandchildren of Eneas McCormick still continue to provide traditional expertise and high quality goods and services. Riley & McCormick is a part of Calgary, part of the Canadian West - Calgary´s Original Western Store since 1901.

    About Magic Tours

Since 1983, George Romberg and his team have been providing unique travel and tour packages to both individual and corporate travellers.

    Calgary City Council scrapped WinSport Canada’s bid to develop a sprawling retail centre near the foot of Canada Olympic Park, as aldermen decried the notion of car-oriented “big box” at the city’s western gateway.

    The 9-5 vote Monday will force the sports agency back to the drawing board with its redevelopment plans for the lands around the sports park. It’s also a body blow to Winsport’s funding ambitions, since they hoped to sell that parcel along Trans-Canada Highway to a private developer to help fund athletic programs.

    “We’re very proud of WinSport and we don’t want to see them suffer or be hurt in any way,” Ald. Richard Pootmans said. “But from a planning and transportation perspective this was not an application that council or I as the ward alderman ... could see fit to approve.”

    The sports agency still can redevelop the base of Paskapoo Slopes as a smaller-scale “Alpine Village” mix of office buildings, residences and some retail, from a previous development plan. The larger project would have demanded the conversion of an six-lane interchange at Bowfort Road N.W. into an eight-lane behemoth, and council was so unhappy with WinSport’s retail plan they asked the city to consider buying the land for untold millions of dollars.

    WinSport president Dan O’Neill refused to speak with reporters after the surprise decision. Community activists from Bowness and the Paskapoo Slopes Preservation Society were delighted.

    “They stood for the people of the city, for the land of the city, for the trees — as opposed to commercialism, which can stand on its own,” said Annette Le Faive of the preservation society, which has long fought developments on the slopes.

    Mayor Naheed Nenshi voted against scrapping the proposal, because he believed there could have been a compromise that had eluded city planners for about a year. He agreed, however that big box wouldn’t work there. “We don’t (want) to create Crowfoot Centre at the foot of Paskapoo Slopes.”

    Nenshi went a step farther, saying that the transit-unfriendly, retail megacentres is something Calgary should shift away from altogether
