    Main Streets Update – May 2019

    The City of Calgary is planning the future of Calgary’s Main Streets. Currently the City is working on Main Streets throughout the city and is hosting open houses to share project details, answer questions and collect our input.

    Project Updates
    33/34 Avenue S.W. (Marda Loop) is one Main Street project that effects Elbow Park, as 14st S.W. is the border between Marda Loop and Elbow Park.

    In 2018, residents provided detailed feedback at public open houses and on-line engagement. These comments were considered when refining the proposed framework to meet Marda Loop’s growth potential. The framework will provide opportunity for new forms of housing and commercial space to benefit businesses in the neighbourhood. For more information, please follow the link

    The 33/34 S.W. Streetscape Master Plan (1) was presented to the Standing Policy Committee on Planning & Urban Development (2) on May1 and will be put forward to Council on May 27 for final consent.

    A group of residents who know each other through their dogs exercising in our Park, organized an“open to all” event that was held at the Clubhouse on May 9.  The potluck and BYOB party was a fun event with lots of good food and good cheer. Some of the attendee's nametags included the dog’s names, usually with the dog’s name first and in bold.  This was a great opportunity for this group of neighbours to gather together to visit with each other without the distraction of their dogs. If your group wants to plan a similar event please contact Lana at events@elbowpark.com.

    Exciting News!! The NEW Basketball Court will be installed over the next two weeks! 

    Thank you to Elbow Park Resident and Volunteer, Kent Brown, for taking on this project over two years ago and seeing it through to completion!!

    Beginning next week, Tuesday, May 21, the court surface tiles will be removed and work will commence on the installation of the NEW basketball court inside the Sport Court at the EPRA Clubhouse Park. 

    In order to ensure that the Sport/Basketball Court remains multipurpose, the basketball posts will be positioned flush with the fencing except for the two end posts. This will ensure that the court is unobstructed and conducive for ball hockey and other sports that occur in this shared space.

    The official opening of the court will be Saturday, June 8!!
