Important – Land Use Amendment Requests

November 27th, 2014

The City of Calgary has sent two Land Use Amendment requests to the Ramsay Community Association.

These two Land Use changes could have a significant impact on Ramsay. We have sent requests for the two applicants to explain their projects and answer questions from the community.

All interested community members are invited to attend the next General Meeting on Tuesday December 2 at 7pm at Ramsay Community Hall.

Important Note: The developer of the rental unit complex will attend the December 2 general meeting, but the CMLC (who are proposing the 7 St SE road closure) will NOT be at the December 2 general meeting. Instead, the CMLC will make a formal presentation to the Ramsay community in the new year. The date will be announced on this website as soon as the CMLC  confirms it.

See below for the details we have so far.

Rental Multi-Residential Development on 11 St SE

What is this?

A new rental unit complex on 11 St SE (at the corner of 18 Ave SE, on the east side of 11 St, just north of the Ramsay Design Centre).

How do I find out more information?

The developer will answer questions at the RCA general meeting at the Ramsay Community Hall on Tuesday December 2 2014 (starting at 7pm)

Existing Use:

Commercial – Corridor 3 (C-Cor3 f2.0h16) District

Proposed Use:

Road Closure of 7 St SE between McDonald Bridge and CPR Bridge

What is this?

The Calgary Municipal Land Corporation (CMLC) would like to permanently close 7 St SE between McDonald Bridge and the CPR Bridge. (Map)

They want to do this in order to expand the Riverwalk. Instead of vehicle traffic, this stretch of 7 St SE would allow pedestrians only.

How do I find out more information?

CBE Three-Year Capital and Modular Plans

November 15th, 2014

From the Calgary Board of Education:

Dear community partner:

The Calgary Board of Education is experiencing unprecedented growth. The demand for schools in new and developing communities, as well as additional space in existing schools, pose a significant challenge. During our public engagements, stakeholders have demonstrated their desire to learn how CBE prioritizes new school construction, major modernizations of existing buildings, and requests for modular classrooms. In the spring of 2014 CBE engaged the public to establish ranking criteria for all capital projects.

Annually in the spring, CBE develops a Three-Year School Capital Plan. It contains detailed information on student enrolment, utilization rates, and requests for funding for modernizations and new school construction. Similarly, each fall, CBE develops a Modular Classroom Plan detailing the need for modular classrooms throughout the system. Funding for all school capital projects is determined and approved by the Government of Alberta based on each school board’s capital plan and modular plan.

We would be pleased to have you share the links to these important documents with your community. We believe all residents, whether or not they are connected to our schools, may have an interest in the content. We are committed to transparency as we work to accommodate all students in an environment that ensures the Calgary Board of Education is the dynamic learning community of choice.
