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.

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.

Anyone who wants to hear about the changes and understand the rationales for these new directions is invited to a public meeting with the Calgary Public Library’s CEO Bill Ptacek.

The meeting will take place on the main level of Memorial Park Library at 7 pm on Tuesday, June 13. The library is located at 1221 – 2 St. SW.

June Potluck

While there is lot more daylight in the evenings, you never know what the weather will bring. However, there will be warm ambiance inside the community centre where we hold our potlucks.  We still have candles and soft music to go along with the variety of dishes for sampling.  The smells are wonderful.  There is lots of food so don’t worry about not getting enough to eat.  The potlucks bring people together with the food acting as a catalyst for interesting conversations.  Everyone is welcome.
