Ward 13 Townhall Meetings

By Diane Colley-Urquhart on April 2017

With all that is happening in our City, I wanted to take the time to hear from Ward 13 residents on what we have achieved together over the last four years.

Ward 13 Dog Park Update

Ward 13 Dog Park Update

By Diane Colley-Urquhart on April 2017

On June 22nd, 2016 I hosted an information session at the Woodcreek Community Hall in response to the closing of the unofficial off-leash dog park located just off of HWY 22X. With the construction of the South West Calgary Ring Road (SWCRR) to begin late 2016, the area was closed by The Province as of January 1st, 2016. This closure left a huge void for our dogs, in not just Ward 13, but also in the surrounding areas. With the closure, I have been working hard with the City of Calgary Parks Department, The Province and Private Partners on a[...]

Anderson Road Widening / Tree Removal

Construction on this project is expected to begin June 2017 and will be wrapped up by the end of 2018. In preparation of construction, approximately 111 trees will be removed[...]

The City of Calgary’s Roads Business Unit has finalized the annual Pavement Rehabilitation Program schedule for 2017.

14 Street / Glenmore Trail Pedestrian Bridge Railing Improvements

14 Street / Glenmore Trail Pedestrian Bridge Railing Improvements

By Diane Colley-Urquhart on January 2017

Last year as I cycled around the south end of the city, I came across some safety hazards on the 14th  Street / Glenmore Trail pedestrian bridge where I felt a couple of safety measures were necessary. I snapped a quick video and had called upon the Roads team to inquire whether any safety adjustments could be implemented here to prevent any near misses or accidents from happening.  I am so pleased to announce that as of this week, a safety railing and a sign have both been installed here at this pedestrian bridge. The Bridges crew installed a section of[...]
