Join the Conversation: Supervised Consumption Services, July 10 – 19

In May 2017, Alberta Health Service submitted an application to the federal government, proposing to provide supervised consumption services at the Sheldon M. Chumir Health Centre. Formal letters of support have been received from the Calgary Chief of Police, Mayor Naheed Nenshi, Beltline Neighbours Association, and Councillor Evan Woolley. 

Responding to the rising toll of opioid-related death in our city is a top priority. Supervised consumption services are a place where people can use drugs in a monitored, hygienic environment to reduce harm from substance use while offering additional services such as counselling, social work, and opioid-dependency treatment.

All residents are encouraged to participate in this consultation. To register call 1-877-275-8830 or emailscs.calgary@albertahealthservices.ca 

 Consultation dates are as follows:

  • July 10, 5:30 – 8:30 PM.
  • July 13, 9:00 – 12:00 PM.
  • July 17, 5:00 – 8:00 PM.
  • July 19, 2:00 – 5:00 PM.

More public consultations may be added as required. Evidence shows that supervised consumption services save lives, improve health and do not increase drug use and criminal activity. The Calgary Coalition on Supervised Consumption Services received $260,000 to conduct a needs assessment and identify potential locations where additional supervised consumption services might be needed in Calgary.

Special Activity – Free Yoga in the park at 4 pm

This year’s potluck picnic is on Sunday, July 9. Note the start time is 5 pm so we can enjoy the outside (weather permitting). If it rains, we will be inside. There will be a free yoga class in the park at 4 pm, weather permitting. At the time of writing, we are not sure if the hall will be available at 4 pm for the yoga class to be inside if it rains. We will clarify this closer to the event.

We will be setting up at 4 pm. We would appreciate people coming to help set up.

Open House on the Proposed Land Use Redesignation

In the 300 Block of 25th Avenue SW

Wednesday, June 28

Time 5 pm to 8 pm

Cliff Bungalow – Mission Community Centre

2201 Cliff Street SW

This proposal would see the building height limit revised from the current 15 metres to 24 metres. This is the second time this proposal is coming forward.  During the last process, we held a community consultation which told us the vast majority of our residents opposed this proposal.  In the end, City Council did not approve that application.  This is a new application for the same proposal and a new process.  As part of this process, the City of Calgary is hosting an open house at our community centre.  We urge you to attend and voice your opinion.

Cliff Bungalow – Mission Community Centre

Prospect Trail is a historic walking trail that is located behind the community centre and links the communities of Cliff Bungalow – Mission, Mount Royal and Elbow Park. It is clearly visible on historic aerial photos but it has fallen in disrepair in recent years.  The three communities are working together with Ward 8 Councillor Evan Woolley.  This event is one of several community consultations to get community input towards a community-based plan for the future of this trail.

We will be accepting cash donations for Calgary Food Bank

Mission Possible has been an annual event in our community starting in 2013 as a response to the flood. It is now our version of Neighbour Day in Calgary.  Every event has featured free burgers and entertainment.  Original Joe’s will be part of this event for the third year.  Two new contributors this year are Yann Haute Patisserie and Mill Street Brewery.  We thank them for their wonderful contributions to this fun event.  There will be lots going on.  Bring a lawn chair or a blanket and enjoy the afternoon with your neighbours.  This year we will be accepting cash donations for the Calgary Food Bank. 

We are still actively recruiting volunteers for all kinds of fun tasks, from set-up to tear-down, and all the fun in between. If you have a couple hours to spare, contact our Social Director cbmca.socialevents@gmail.com.

Please note:  On page 14 of the Swerve magazine (June 9 – 17 edition) that comes with Friday’s Calgary Herald, there is a listing of Neighbour Day events on Saturday, June 17 in Calgary. The address for Mission Possible, our Neighbour Day event, is incorrect.  They have listed our mailing address.  The event will be held in the park on the north side of our community centre located at 2201 Cliff Street SW.
