Tell Avenue Magazine that Ramsay is the Best Neighbourhood

February 7th, 2013

It’s that time once again: Avenue Magazine’s annual Best Neighbourhoods Survey.

Disagree with this year’s results? Want to make sure that your neighbourhood is included in the results for 2013?

Determining a best neighbourhood comes down to the people who live there.

Avenue’s annual Best Neighbourhoods results start with a survey that asks Calgarians about what is most valuable in a neighbourhood. Are safety and large yards important to you? Do you want to live close to downtown? Which amenities do you care most about? Your opinion on those factors helps us determine the definition of “best.”

We take that criteria, as well as information on crime statistics, property value, access to amenities and more, and give that information to our partners at Leger Marketing. They crunch the numbers and rank Calgary’s best neighbourhoods.

Have your say in Avenue’s 2013 Best Neighbourhoods.


The survey closes on February 28 2013.

Ramsay Inspiration Series #1: “Urbanized” on Saturday February 9

February 5th, 2013

Starting Feb 9th, we are going to build on the movement that we have been creating over the last year.

We will start hosting intentional gatherings at the Community Hall to inspire conversation, action, and excitement.

Our first event will be a documentary night with popcorn and beverages for the whole family. The movie is Urbanized.

This is a great look at design of cities. What is urban design? What does it do for us? How has it helped us and how has it failed us?

It’s a documentary about hope, how we can make positive changes and live in our cities and love it.

See you there!

  • Saturday February 9
  • 6-9pm

Jacob Schon is The Guitar Pick Kid of Ramsay

December 9th, 2012

Ramsay’s Jacob Schon is featured in Swerve magazine:

At the tender age of 11, Schon—a Grade 6 student with a pint-sized electric guitar—has already figured out what it takes most of us well into adulthood to realize: that if you want something done right now, you gotta do it yourself.
