Ward 14 News: September 2017 Newsletter

Ward 14 official website
Hello Ward 14!
It has been a hot summer so far! I hope everyone has had their share of dips in the pool, and ice cream cones. There are still many warm days ahead, but the signs of autumn are on their way.

Ward 14 Communities BBQ

My BBQ is a sure sign that September is here (or maybe it is the other way around). Join me on September 16 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the parking lot of Southcentre Mall. You can visit www.calgary.ca/ward14bbq for more info, or www.calgary.ca/ward14connect for email updates.
Stay Connected with email updates!
There will be many interesting exhibitors, all of Ward 14’s community associations, MLAs, MPs, and a delicious Spolumbo’s sausage on a bun for attendees. Of course, none of those things would be there without amazing sponsors. Thank you to Genstar, United Communities, ATCO, Mattamy Homes, Southgate Chevrolet Buick GMC, Canyon Creek Toyota, Jack Carter Chevrolet Cadillac Buick GMC, Waste Connections of Canada, Pacific Developments, Southcentre Mall, Spolumbo’s, Safeway, Spruce Meadows, South Trail Insurance, No Bull Bookkeeping, and Great News Publishing.
I will see you there!

2017 Municipal Election

Another autumn tradition! Calgarians will vote for their Mayor, Councillors, and School Board Trustees in the 2017 Municipal Election. You can choose to cast your ballot during the Advance Vote from October 4 – 11, excluding October 9 (Thanksgiving) or on Election Day, October 16. There are many ways to vote, so be sure to check the website www.electionscalgary.ca for a complete list of voting options. Voting station locations will be available online after September 19, 2017, or you can watch the mail for your official Election Guide.

Green Cart Program Rollout

I want to briefly remind everyone that the majority of Ward 14 will be receiving green carts starting August 28 with collection starting on October 2. If you are away during this time, you will still get your bin. I encourage you to ask your neighbours to bring the cart on to your property. Look for all necessary instructions inside the bin when you receive it, and visit calgary.ca/greencart for more info

Macleod Trail and 162 Avenue Interchange

One sure sign of autumn is the end of construction season, but the end of this bit of construction has been coming for more than just a season. Those of us who drive the road every day have dealt with it for many months, and those who have dealt with it behind the scenes—like me—are coming to the end of a process that lasted many years. I am very proud to have worked on this project. I know it will benefit Calgarians for decades to come.
As I write this we are preparing to open the new interchange to vehicles. As you read it, the interchange will be nearing completion. If you are looking for the latest information about the progress of construction or just details about the project, I recommend visiting calgary.ca/macleod162ave.
Of course you can always contact me if you would like to speak with me about the interchange, or anything else. Enjoy the wonderful weather while it lasts!
Sincerely,
-Counc
