Liquor in Public Parks?

The City of Calgary wants to hear from you.

Online survey until January 31, 2019.   https://engage.calgary.ca/liquorinparks

The City of Calgary is conducting public research into a proposal which would allow Calgarians to consume alcohol in City parks.

Detailed information and FAQs can be found here: https://s3.ap-southeast-2.amazonaws.com/hdp.au.prod.app.cgy-engage.files/6715/4766/0826/FAQ_liquor_in_parks_Jan_2019.pdf

As per the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission regulations, the use of liquor in parks would apply to signed, designated picnic sites only, and liquor must be consumed with food. Public intoxication would not be tolerated.

What do you think? What would the impacts be?

Please fill out the survey and pass it on to other residents as well. Your opinion matters!

The City is considering a pilot project depending on the results of the public engagement. The survey will ask for postal codes to help identify potential sites. If the majority of responses are against liquor in parks in one postal code, then the City would not initially designate sites in that area.

Please consider writing a short email to the Brentwood Community Association (brntwdca@telus.net) and Councillor Sean Chu (ward04@calgary.ca) so we know what you think and can accurately represent you.

Thank you.

  • Backyard Secondary Suites Guidelines – January 14, 2019
    After Council approved secondary suites in all areas of the city in March, guidelines for Backyard suites were not yet included. The Backyard Suite Design Guidelines have now been finalized with community and developer input. The Guidelines will go to Council on January 14th and there will be an opportunity for the public to provide input through a public hearing.
    The Guidelines and supporting information can be found here.  https://pub-calgary.escribemeetings.com/filestream.ashx?DocumentId=73779
    An application for a backyard suite in Brentwood has been received and is in the review process.  We have used the Guidelines to help us evaluate the proposal and have made suggestions for revisions to the applicant.  Since backyard suites will now be allowed, please take a look at the guidelines to see what types of items (building forms) have been included.
  • Residential Parking Permit Survey – Deadline January 17, 2019
    The City of Calgary is looking for your feedback in relation to parking permits, such as restricted resident parking, 2-hour parking, etc.   Anyone can fill out the survey.  Do you visit a home or business with restricted parking?  Do you live in a home with a parking permit system or within a 2-hour zone?
    If so, please complete the survey to let the City know how the current system is, or is not, working for you.
    More information can be found on this site:  https://engage.calgary.ca/
  • Development Permit Application Notices
    After March 2019, Development Permits will no longer be posted in the Calgary Herald every Thursday and will be posted on-line only.  Signs will still be placed in front of a site with a DP application, but please note that the signage remains in place for only one week.   You can view all DPs online at www.calgary.ca/development.
    We also post DPs on our website:   https://developments.brentwoodcommunity.com/current-developments/
  • Interested in Planning?  Partners in Planning Program
    The Federation of Calgary Communities (FCC) along with the City of Calgary offers a Partners in Planning program.  It is intended to help participants better understand the planning process, such as how a development gets planned and approved.
    Partners in Planning courses are free; however you do need to register in advance since space is limited. Most courses run on Saturday mornings from about 8:30 until noon.
    You can find more information here:  https://calgarycommunities.com/our-services/urban-planning/education/

You are also welcome to join us at our Development and Transportation Committee meetings.  We meet on the first Monday of every month at 7:00 in the BCA Boardroom.

This mail is being sent out to all Brentwood CA members as well as those residents who have signed up for email updates with the Development and Transportation Committee.  If you have friends or neighbours who do not use email, please feel free to pass this on to them as well.

How do I find out about possible DP applications in my neighbourhood?

Brentwood Co-op Redevelopment

In December 2016, both a Land Use Amendment (rezoning) Application and Development Permit (DP) were submitted for the Brentwood Co-op site. The rezoning application would have redesignated the property to allow for an increase in building height up to approximately 148 meters (486 feet) and 40-storey high.

Northmount Drive Improvement Project Phase 1

Phase 1 for the bike lanes has begun along Northmount Drive.  Phase 1 involved repaving and roadwork around 14th Street, but also the installation of 10 yellow curb extensions along the corridor on the North and South side of Northmount Drive (see details below).

The curb extensions were intended to make pedestrian crossings safer, especially around 34th street (beside Captain John Palliser School).

However, the current placement of the curb extensions has caused some concern for cyclists.  Cyclists are not able to safely ride between the extension and the road curb so they have to ride around the extensions, very close to vehicles travelling on Northmount Drive.  Two near-misses with vehicles on the road have been reported to us.

The curb extensions are temporary until the full completion of the bike lanes along Northmount.  While the extensions appear safer for pedestrians, there are concerns that they increase the risk for cyclists who now have to ride closer to traffic.

The DTC is in contact with the City of Calgary about this issue.

We are open to resident comments.  What have you seen or experienced since the curb extensions were installed?
