The May 28, 2018, Regular Meeting of Council included:

Event Centre Exploration Committee

In the Fall of 2015 City Council undertook a process to assess the feasibility of a new event centre/arena facility for Calgary. City Council, City Administration and the Calgary Municipal Land Corporation (CMLC) have spent considerable time, effort and resources examining various scenarios to consider a Sport and Entertainment Facility. An Event Centre has been examined as a viable key anchor in the redevelopment of West Village via the Calgary Sport and Entertainment Corporation’s proposal for CalgaryNEXT, as well as through the City’s preferred option (April, 2017) as part of the Council approved Victoria Park Master Plan led by CMLC.

Council voted to reaffirm its commitment to the exploration of an Event Centre that takes into account the best interest of all Calgarians, with the initial membership of the Event Centre Assessment Committee (ECAC) as follows:

  • City Manager, City of Calgary
  • President, Calgary Municipal Land Corporation
  • Board Chair, Calgary Economic Development (“CED”)
  • Board Chair, Calgary Municipal Land Corporation
  • Councillor Davison
  • Councillor Keating
  • Councillor Sutherland

The first meeting of the ECAC will be held on June 19, 2018, and the Committee is to report back to City Council no later than June 25, 2018, and include revised Terms.
