Inglewood/Ramsay City Projects Update – 

August 2020

 

See below for important updates on upcoming construction and projects in the Inglewood and Ramsay communities.

Airport Vicinity Protection Area Proposed Changes – Project Update

We are working with the Calgary Airport Authority, to bring forward proposed amendments to the Noise Exposure Forecast (NEF) contour areas within the Calgary International Airport Vicinity Protection Area (AVPA) Regulation for Council’s consideration.

The NEF contours have not been reviewed or updated since 1979. Aviation regulations and technologies have changed and advanced since then. Modernized NEF contour mapping has been developed to reflect the changes to aviation regulations and technologies. These changes will preserve the operations of the Calgary International Airport and enable land use potential in some communities.

 

The proposed amendments will be presented to the Standing Policy Committee on Planning and Urban Development on September 2. If Council approves the resolution to request a Ministerial amendment to the AVPA Regulations, Administration will send the proposed amendments to the Province for consideration. No changes will be made to the AVPA Regulation or the NEF contours unless they are approved by the Province.

For more information about the proposed amendments, please visit calgary.ca/AVPA.

9 Avenue S.E. Bridge Replacement – Construction Update

It’s been a busy summer construction season for the 9 Avenue S.E. bridge replacement project, with site preparations well underway for installation of the new bridge.

Construction progress

Over the past several months, crews have been focused on completing required work in the area surrounding the bridge, to prepare the site for installation of the new structure. This work includes road and sidewalk demolition, new stormwater infrastructure and other underground utility works east and west of the new bridge. Construction of concrete approach slabs is underway and the roadway will soon start to be reconstructed. See photos below of (1) concrete pump truck onsite for west approach slab pour and (2) finishing concrete on the roadway deck section.

Behind the scenes

In addition to construction on-site, work continues behind the scenes on the production of steel beams and concrete sidewalk planks. These components will be used for the installation of the new bridge, which is expected to start later in September.

Inglewood/Ramsay Social Recreation Needs – Engagement ending soon

Community Engagement opportunity is closing on Aug. 31. We want to hear from you!

Great communities are built on opportunities to connect and get active. We have begun a process to understand how Calgarians who live, work, and play in Inglewood and Ramsay use social and recreational spaces. We need your input to help us make decisions that reflect your needs.

The City of Calgary is working to determine the long-term futures of the Beltline & Inglewood Recreation facilities, through a thorough understanding of the social & recreational needs of those communities. This process will take place throughout 2020 and 2021 in three phases:

 

  • Discover, in which we’ll seek to understand the social & recreational needs and opportunities of the two communities through several methods including market research, community engagement and consultation with external service providers to identify service gaps and overlaps.
  • Design, in which we’ll evaluate the results of the feedback in the Discover phase to develop recommendations for services or amenities in the community.
  • Deliver, in which we’ll move forward on Council’s direction regarding investments and actions to meet community need and address the long-term future of the facilities.

Help us understand what’s important to you

As we work through the Discover phase, we need the input of your community on how you stay healthy, connected and active. Online engagement is open at www.calgary.ca/inglewoodrec until Aug. 31, 2020. We encourage you to participate in this online survey and make sure your voice is heard.

While you’re there, make sure you apply to receive a Neighbourhood Inquiry Kit, which helps us understand how local residents are meeting their social and recreational needs.

For more information, please visit calgary.ca/inglewoodrec.
