Deep Water Workouts at the Inglewood Pool

February 15th, 2012

submitted by Angie/Jackie

The deep water workout class has been reinstated at the request of Inglewood residents, on a trial basis, beginning March l.  The class will be held:

Thursday evenings 6:30 – 7:15 pm.

Call 403-268-3800 to register (Calgary Recreation).

Please support your local swimming pool and register for this program if you can.  We need to have at least 10-15 people on a consistent basis to keep the class going.

This reinstatement has resulted in the morning lane swim being reduced from 6 – 9 pm to 8 to 9 am on Thursdays.

It’s time to stop talking and walk the walk!  If you want to continue to have these amenities in the neighbourhood, use it or lose it!

Ramsay wins The Natural Step Pilot Program!

February 15th, 2012

Ramsay has been chosen to be part of the The Natural Step pilot program for developing community sustainability plans.

The Natural Step – Sustainable Communities Program

So what does this mean?

Well they have worked with larger organizations in Alberta on municipal sustainability plans…

Municipal Sustainability Planning is a process that guides municipalities in creating a long-term vision for their communities.  Proactive steps are taken to move towards a sustainable future, one where a strong economy and participatory governance leads in protecting our natural environment, effectively manages the built environment, contributes to a vibrant cultural scene and cultivates significant social inclusion.

MSPs are  an opportunity to engage citizens in a dialogue about what they value about their communities and how these values can be incorporated into a long-term vision that endorses sustainable development actions.

MSPs  provide an outlet for wisdom and expertise of community members to discover innovative solutions that address social, cultural, economic, environmental and governance challenges today while leaving a positive legacy for future generations.”

Each one of the municipalities has created a final document that you can scan/read to get an idea of what a CSP may look like. You can find all the links on this website:


Every strategic plan is developed through public engagement with all stakeholders in the area, so it will be important for every Ramsayite to get engaged and get involved to ensure the strategies we prioritize are going to take us in the direction we all want Ramsay to be heading in over the next 30-50 years.
