    From Wednesday, June 6 to Saturday, June 9, 2012, Calgarians are invited to participate in a city-wide litter cleanup. If each of us spends just 20 minutes picking up litter in public spaces, we will all benefit from a cleaner, safer city.

    Grab garbage bags and gloves and clean up a boulevard, back alley or park – any public space that would benefit from a few minutes of special attention. Deposit collected litter in your regular garbage.

     

    Be part of building stronger communities! Individuals and families, neighbours, schools, corporate and community groups are all welcome to participate.

    Join the challenge by going to our sign up page and be counted! Why not consider making the 20-Minute Makeover one of your 3 Things for Calgary by posting your before and after photos on the 3 Things for Calgary website.
     
    All participants will be entered in a draw to win prizes provided by GLAD.

    The newest West LRT update was just released. To view it go to www.westlrt.ca
  • April 26, 2012 9:55 AM | Anonymous

    On Wednesday, May 2, 2012, from 4-8 p.m., at Westbrook Mall, The City’s Transportation Planning is hosting a public information session on the West LRT Pedestrian and Bicycle Improvements Project – Phase 1. The information session will be an “open house” format with display boards showing new cycling route, connections to LRT stations and a number of road improvements as part of the West LRT Pedestrian and Bicycle Improvements Project.

    The scope of Phase 1 includes improvements to key cycling and pedestrian routes leading into three LRT station areas: Shaganappi Point Station, Westbrook Station, and 45 Street Station. The boundaries of Phase 1 are (from east to west) Crowchild Trail, Sarcee Trail, (from north to south) Spruce Drive/Sovereign Crescent and 26 Avenue S.W. Through 2011, The City of Calgary called together a stakeholder group of people from the area communities and people from the cycling community to provide input about the routes in phase 1. The stakeholder group met twice in 2011: once to provide comments and concerns about cycling in the area and a second time to provide feedback on bicycle route concept plans. Planning for Phase 2 will begin in late 2012 and includes the 69 Street, Sirocco, and Sunalta LRT Stations. The City will again bring together a stakeholder group of people from the area communities and people from the cycling community.

    Calgarians are invited to share their opinions and concerns through an online survey.
    It's quite simple, just nine questions, completely anonymous, and will only
    take you a few minutes to finish.

    http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2DFBQBS

    There's a very good reason why you should do this survey: the City of
    Calgary has invited Calgary River Valleys to present the views of its members and
    stakeholders (and that means YOU!) in two current projects: the
    "Biodiversity Strategic Initiative" and the "Riparian Assessment,
    Streambank Stability & Flood Control Guidelines."  They'll forward the survey
    results to the City's policy- and decision-makers in the form of
    recommendations that represent the perspectives and values of informed
    Calgarians - which means that you can help shape the City's direction and
    policies!

    They'll close the survey at 9:00 am on Monday, April 16, 2012.

    Please forward this email to anyone else you know who's also interested in
    these topics.

    If you have any questions, contact Mac Hickley at 403-268-4867.

    What's the difference between a great neighbourhood and the BEST neighbourhood? What factors make that truly winning combination undefined amenities, price, curb appeal, low crime rate and intangibles such as friendliness of the neighbours? Fill out Avenue's Best Neighbourhoods Survey and let us know what you think makes a neighbourhood great and then tell us how your own community stacks up. 

    See this year's results for Calgary's Best Neighbourhoods.

    Avenue and Leger Marketing will then crunch the numbers and use the responses to weight the factors plus include even more data from the City on the location of parks and amenities, crime statistics, tax assessments, average lot size, and more to determine Calgary's Best Neighbourhood.

    For those communities that are new enough that comprehensive data is not available, Avenue will also use the survey responses to questions about what makes a great neighbourhood for a story on Best New Communities for 2012.

    Complete survey now.

    CALGARY- After struggling for months over whether to allow Canada Olympic Park land to be turned into a large retail development, the city is now considering a dramatic and costly Plan C- buy the land. Council voted Monday to study a potential purchase of 19 hectares at the base of Paskapoo Slopes.It’s unclear how much the property would cost a valuation will be part of the study but city hall already has up to $60 million in loan guarantees tied up in other parts of the COP expansion venture. WinSport Canada had expected to repay those loan guarantees through selling land along the Trans Canada Highway to a retail developer after getting rezoning. That plan was up in the air, however, as city planners disagreed with WinSport on how to ensure some office developments would be part of that retail project, and when a future highway interchange would expand to meet that traffic demand. Buying the land would let the city sidestep that complex disagreement, but the city is unsure how to come up with the funds to do so. “The city had some of our top people on this file over the last couple of months, and this is what they came up with a way to move forward,” Mayor Naheed Nenshi said in council Monday. Council will likely vote on a potential purchase when the city presents its study in June. For several months, council has delayed a decision on a new master plan for the lands surrounding the site of the 1988 Winter Games’ ski jump, bobsled track and freestyle skiing hill. The less-controversial parts of the project include hotels, a film studio, and a large park with cross-country ski trails on the Paskapoo Slopes, south of the proposed retail land. Nenshi suggested that instead of big box retail on the site, it could become part of that park and ski-trail area. Conservation groups had also called on the city to block a move to flatten the lower slopes for large stores and their parking lots. Jim Younker, chief operating officer for WinSport and head of its rezoning application, could not be reached for comment. Ald. Dale Hodges said a letter from WinSport stated the group agrees that council should hold off any decisions until June. Although the market value of those 19 hectares of COP land is still to be determined, Younker had said previously that there was a gap of up to $20 million between the potential sale price of those parcels if WinSport’s plans were approved and the price if city planners’ alterations were approved. Under then-mayor Dave Bronconnier, council agreed in 2010 to give WinSport up to $60 million in loan guarantees to ensure the sports agency could build new ice arenas. The organization has only drawn down about two-thirds of that amount.
