On March 14, 2016, City Council approved new ward boundaries that were drafted and recommended by the Ward Board Commission (WBC). However, there were some variances between wards that were above the allowable populations permitted.
The outcome for Ward 1 is as follows: Montgomery, University Heights, University of Calgary and University District become part of Ward 7. Paskapoo East will join Ward 6.
It is difficult to lose any community. I will miss the friendships that have been built since I was elected. I can assure those communities moving to Ward 6 and Ward 7 that you can continue to count on that strong relationship until the end of my term on October 16, 2017.
Ward 1 will gain one community, Royal Oak. I am pleased that Royal Oak is returning back to Ward 1. Royal Oak and Rocky Ridge have always been one community. View the new boundary changes here.
