Ward 5 Councillor Ray Jones official website

The Culture, Parks and Recreation Infrastructure Investment Plan (CPRIIP) and the Emergency Response Infrastructure Investment Plan (ERIIP) for 2013-2022 are strategic, long-range capital planning documents that outline community infrastructure investment priorities. These projects reflect citizen and community priorities, and represent the cultural, social, recreation and safety needs of Calgarians.  They are essential elements in the vibrant urban fabric that makes Calgary a great place to live, work - and stay.

Showcasing Success - Playground and Tennis Court Upgrades

Maintaining safe and wholesome places for children to play and families to socialize supports The City of Calgary's goal of complete communities: Twenty-three playgrounds were completely replaced and four playgrounds received a new fall surface. Additionally, 28 tennis courts were upgraded at 10 sites across Calgary at a cost of $246,637. This work was made possible by the community investment fund and The City’s commitment to maintaining and improving quality recreational facilities and amenities for all citizens to enjoy.

The scope of work for each tennis court varied court site to site, from simple resurfacing to major redevelopment. A complete reconstruction of three tennis courts in the community of Pineridge cost $91,800, or 37 per cent of the total budget.​ See the video for more details.
