There’s still time….
If you weren’t able to attend the last Munro Park Open House to share your wants and needs for the park, there is still time to give input. The three draft concepts under consideration will be showcased at the Community Association AGM on May 27 and the Project Manager from the City of Calgary will be there to answer questions and collect your feedback.  To allow the consulting firm to incorporate this additional feedback into the Draft Master Plan, the final presentation of the Draft Master Plan has been rescheduled to Thursday June 19 from 7 to 9 p.m.


Let’s Get Growing!

May 7, 2014

MANY THINGS WILL SPROUT THIS SPRING, including the WHMCA Community Garden! We will be breaking ground in May, weather permitting.

After consulting with The Calgary Horticultural Society to determine an ideal location and considering the right amount of sunshine and proper land conditions, the garden will be located in the northwest corner of the field next to the WHMCA hall. The field will be a hub of activity for the community by housing the rink, the City of Calgary’s Rain Garden and the new Community Garden. The garden will meet the rink’s north and west boundaries, but will not overlap these boundaries in any way. (See map of the future garden site.)

The garden design will be developed in phases, depending on funding and volunteer manpower.  Phase 1 will be completed this spring with plans to complete Phase 2 in 2015. There will be bed for community ‘sampling’, education beds for our schools and philanthropic beds to donate food to people in need. The Garden will provide a social core for the community and an opportunity for people of all ages and nationalities to be together with a common goal to learn how to grow clean food and interact more closely.

A little history about the Community Garden… the idea was first introduced to the community in August 2012 at a public session held to gauge the level of community interest. Out of that session, a volunteer committee was formed to undertake further research, consultation and planning. Extensive community consultation included an open house, meetings with other community committees and individuals, updates to the WHMCA Board and two door-to-door campaigns.

The community garden would not be possible without the support from corporate and government grants but most importantly from our community residents and local businesses. A huge thank you to all of you!

North Central LRT Project update

Calgary Transit would like to hear from you! If you live in the North Central area of the city, these events are for you.

Calgary Transit is planning a light rail transit (LRT) line to connect Calgarians who live and work in the North Central area of the city with their communities. After working through a technical analysis that included previous public input, the LRT project team has narrowed their focus to the two highest-ranking route options: Centre Street North (at street level), and Edmonton Trail (at street level). Now the team would like to know which route the public thinks will be the best fit for their community.

Come and take a walk through the different options, talk with the project team, ask them questions, and offer your thoughts at these upcoming public open house events:

April 29

Ascension of Our Lord School
509 Harvest Hills Drive NE
Tuesday, April 29, 2014 from 6-9 p.m.
