President’s Message – September 2017

September marks the beginning of a new social and activity season for the Community. The continuation of our existing programs, development of new programs and the financing of new and existing facilities within our community is the continuing objective of your Board of Directors. As indicated below volunteers are needed for social and recreational programs throughout the year. No less critical are the financial and administrative issues that may be less visual but are equally important. This fall, explore the possibility of volunteering a little of your time towards areas in which you feel comfortable and allow for flexible time commitments.

The Community Hall has witnessed an upgrade this summer to establish our facility as a full commercial kitchen. This will allow increased usage of the kitchen and thereby expand the types of events that may be hosted at the Hall. This program has been in planning and development for the past three years. With grants from both the City of Calgary and the Provincial Government the cost of this work will be minimal for the Community. The challenge will be to generate ideas and programs that will develop its use potential into 2018 and 2019. Renting it out to commercial enterprises can add revenue for the Community but we hope its greatest use will be through community activities whether social, educational or charitable. If you have any ideas please contact us at cambrianheights@gmail.com

Our next social event will be Saturday, September 30 where we will taste Canadian wines in honour of Canada’s 150th Birthday. Watch for details on our website and Community Newsletter. If you wish to volunteer or have questions about this event please contact Barb Milne at blmilne@shaw.ca. We have also scheduled our annual Halloween Party for October 28th from 6-9 PM. Children of all ages are welcome with music, games, food and dancing.

Your community offers excellent facilities and the financial ability to promote more social or educational activities for our residents. We have evening space available for community use. Our community always welcomes residents who wish to initiate new programs or join our Social Committee to bring new ideas for recreational or educational evenings. You need only commit time to help organize and help manage one such activity a year. We have dedicated and experienced Directors to help guide and advise but need more members offering a little time once a year to help expand and improve our Programs and Events. Please contact me at president@cambrianheightscommunity.com or any other director for further insights into participation with our volunteer team.

The next meeting of the Board will take place Monday, September 11 at the Georgina Thomson building on 14th Street and Northmount Drive NW at 6:30 PM. This will be the first meeting for the Fall and important for the development of Fall and Winter programs into 2018. All residents are welcome to attend and share any concerns, questions or ideas you may have relevant to Cambrian Heights.

Remember Participation Builds Better Communities.

 

On Behalf of the Board;

Daryl Connolly, President

Northmount Drive N.W. Improvement Project (Phase 1)

Construction update and temporary bus stop relocation

Construction continues on the Northmount Drive N.W. (Phase 1) improvements:

  • Concrete work is expected to be complete by the end of August
  • Pavement milling (removing asphalt surface to prepare for re-paving) between Carol Drive N.W. and Cambrian Drive N.W. will begin once concrete work is complete
  • Re-paving on 14 Street N.W. is complete
  • The 10 curb extensions between Northland Drive N.W. and Clarendon Road N.W. are expected to be installed before school begins this fall. First, crews will mark the pavement and then place the concrete slabs with a truck-mounted crane. This work is expected to take place during off-peak hours
  • All businesses remain open during construction

Temporary bus stop relocation
Bus stop 5742 has been temporarily relocated to the east side of 14 Street N.W. during construction on the bus zone rehabilitation.
