Opportunity for you to provide the City with your comments on the 25th Avenue SW and 5th Street SW Proposal

You no doubt have seen signs in front of the current residential building located at the northeast corner of 25th Avenue SW and 5th Street SW.  We have learned that the City is still accepting comments on the proposed 12 story building that would require a land use change approved by City Council and a Development Permit approval before it could be built. 

 

We know from consultations with the community over many years that the number one planning and development issue in our community is height.  This proposal does not respect that long held position. 

 

We also want to make it clear that we are not against the proposed use – that of seniors living.  We would welcome a proposal for this use in which the building respected the current land use (zoning).

 

So you still have an opportunity to make your views known to the City.  The people you can direct your comments to are as follows:

 

Desmond Bliek

City of Calgary Senior Planner

Phone: 403.268.2918

Email: desmond.bliek@calgary.ca

FILE NO: LOC2018-0143

 

Jennifer Duff

City of Calgary Planner

Phone: 403.268.8977

Email: jennifer.duff@calgary.ca

 

In both cases, include the file number:  LOC2018-0143 so they know what file you are commenting on. 

 

The following are pdf reference materials that may help you better understand what is proposed and what the key issues are: 

 

  1. Rendering of the proposed building  Riverwalk-Image1
  2. Our Concerns – as identified by community residents  Our Concerns
  3. Riverwalk – Community Comments – LOC – June 2018  Riverwalk-Community Comments-LOC-June2018
  4. Community Position – from August 2018 Mission Statement  Community Position – brief
  5. CA President’s comments – from August 2018 Mission Statement  CA President’s comments

 

Apparently the City has not received much feedback from community residents.  So it is important that you take a little time to provide your comments to the City. 

 

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Two Proposals for 2nd Street SW Modifications

The City of Calgary is currently doing consultations on possible changes to 2nd Street SW from 10 Avenue SW to 26 Avenue SW. 

 

The first proposal has the following key characteristics:

  • Maintains the current two-way vehicle traffic
  • New bike lanes on either side of the vehicle traffic lanes
  • Maintains current west side parking

 

The second proposal has the following key characteristics:

  • Converts vehicle traffic to north bound only
  • Side by side bike lanes on west side
  • Parking moved to east side

 

Both would have some traffic calming measures with more for the second proposal.  Both would reduce the speed limit to 40 kph (subject to Council approval). 

 

The Cliff Bungalow – Mission Community Association does not support converting vehicle traffic to one-way north bound.  This is what was in place before two-way traffic was restored after 10 years of community effort working with the City and neighbouring communities. 

 

We support having marked bicycle lanes.  We support traffic calming.  We support reducing the speed limit to 40 kph. 

 

We have suggested to the City to consider slightly less wide side by side bike lanes that would allow maintaining two-way vehicle traffic.

 

Some people in the community have received post cards on this matter.  We are sharing this with all the community because we believe that this is a very important issue and that it is a community-wide matter. 

 

You can fill in an online survey on what your position is.  Go to www.calgary.ca/2ndstreet and make your views known. 

 

Deadline is Friday, November 16.

Fall Movie Night

 

Sunday, October 28, 7 pm

Cliff Bungalow – Mission Community Centre

 

“Dawson City – Frozen Time”

 

This meditation on cinema’s past from pieces together the bizarre true history of a long-lost collection of 533 nitrate film prints from the early 1900s. Located just south of the Arctic Circle, Dawson City was settled in 1896 and became the center of the Canadian Gold Rush that brought 100,000 prospectors to the area. It was also the final stop for a distribution chain that sent prints and newsreels to the Yukon. The films were seldom, if ever, returned.

The now-famous Dawson City Collection was uncovered in 1978 when a bulldozer working its way through a parking lot dug up a horde of film cans. Morrison draws on these permafrost-protected, rare silent films and newsreels, pairing them with archival footage, interviews, historical photographs, and an enigmatic score by Sigur Ros collaborator and composer Alex Somers. DAWSON CITY: FROZEN TIME depicts the unique history of this Canadian Gold Rush town by chronicling the life cycle of a singular film collection through its exile, burial, rediscovery, and salvation.

There is no entry cost and there is free popcorn and pop.
