President’s Message – July/August 2016

At your reading of this report we are into the annual 10 days of Calgary Stampede and the beginning of summer. We wish all residents a warm, sunny, active and healthy summer. Our annual Stampede Breakfast is scheduled for July 16th at the Community Hall. This event has been growing in popularity so mark it on your calendar and bring the family down for pancakes, sausages, juice, coffee games and the chance to meet other members of the community. We always invite our City Councillor (Druh Farrell) and our MLA (Craig Coolahan) to these events and it is a great opportunity to meet your government representatives as well as the Community Officers and Directors. If you are able we always need help setting up and taking down for this event. So come early, the coffee will be on, or stay a little late. It will be appreciated.

June continued to be a very active month as we wound down for the summer break. On June 12th we, with the Rosemont Community, held our second Annual Spring Clean-up Event at the Cambrian Heights Community Hall parking lot. The day prior there was a first garage sale event at the Community Hall where tables provided a multi sale event and time for socializing with your neighbours. Then on June 25th the last of an informative and to date very well appreciated series of seminars hosted by the City around the planting and care of trees and shrubs was held at the Hall. On June 28, Dr. Salma Mitha conducted a Wine Women’s Health Workshop featuring healthy interactive power workout, a wine tasting and a make-over. A decision is pending as to the continuation of this program into the fall.

We are currently organizing a Picnic/BBQ on September 17th to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of Cambrian Heights Community. We envision at this time serving hamburgers, hot dogs, salads and beverages. This will be a family affair with games and activities planned for both the adults and children. As plans for this event mature we will be providing additional details. Anyone wishing to add suggestions or volunteer to assist in the planning, preparation or helping out with this event please contact Jodi Dixon at .

The Community Association continues to offer a $100 grant for community block parties. Application for this grant can be made through the community email address. Costs will be reimbursed (excluding alcoholic beverages) with receipts pertaining to organized block parties with broad attendance of all age groups. We encourage you to access this funding and create your own block event for the summer or fall. Two such parties are already planned for this summer.

As we have previously discussed in these monthly messages our Planning Committee continues to be active in regards to monitoring the issuance of Development Permits (“DP’s”) by the City in our community. This activity covers the gauntlet from secondary suites in RC-1 neighbourhoods, to best guidelines for maintaining the identity of our community with the growth and densification, to long term transportation issues. Everyone should remain vigilant as to developments within their streets and if there are questions or concerns write to the community association ( or contact Daryl Beatty or Gary Wilson of the Planning Committee. Two new members of the community have agreed to join this committee recognizing the importance of this activity. We still need one more member of the committee who is interested in acting as Secretary. Join, learn and participate in the development of your community.

We continue to encourage all residents to participate in the community activities and future events and program planning by joining the association and communicating your thoughts either through emails or by attending one of our Board meetings which are always open for residents. Our Secretary for the Board has indicated he will not be returning next year. If you are interested in exploring this volunteer position please contact us at our email address. The next meeting will take place Tuesday, September 6 at the Georgina Thomson  building on 14th Street and Northmount Drive NW at 6:30PM.

Remember Participation Builds Better Communities.

On Behalf of the Board;

Daryl Connolly, President
