1) Queens Park Cemetery Expansion
The City would like to continue discussions with the community, provide additional information and collect input. Specifically, they are looking to:
- Discuss proposed alternative sites for off-leash areas in the community.
- Share more information about the land use application process.
Please attend the final drop-in engagement sessions on Wednesday, May 9, 6-8 p.m., Highwood Community Hall, 16 Harlow Avenue NW.
I have made it clear to Parks and Recreation that I will support the community on this issue, and that the lack of engagement, and transparency on this issue was not acceptable. I am working to find a solution, so that residents’ concerns are heard. The Community Association will also be in attendance at this drop-in session. I am still working on this file, and will have an update for all residents shortly. I heard all of you loud and clear. I have your back on this.
2) Northmount DR – Cambrian DR
As of this month the “No Right Turn on A Red Light” at the Intersection of Northmount Drive and Cambrian Drive was removed.
I had heard from constituents that it was a priority to improve traffic flow on Northmount Dr by reducing the peak travel time congestion. I took these concerns to the City of Calgary Transportation department and after a visit to the area on April 13th it was agreed that removing the no right turn sign at this intersection would alleviate the issue.
I would like to say thank you to citizens who brought forward their concerns. I am working with Transportation on many issues regarding safety of drivers and pedestrians, for example flashing lights at intersections, crosswalks, and to find solutions to make our commutes even faster and safer. If you have other suggestions, please contact my office.
When we work together we can make real, and positive, change in our communities.
