PLANNING UPDATE
Since you won’t be hearing from us through Get Engaged this summer, we’ve put together a post with upcoming summer planning happenings, and what to look forward to in the fall. Have a look here: calgarycommunities.com/happy-summer.

Other notable updates from the past two weeks:
  1. City of Calgary: Planning for the future, building a great city, great neighbourhoods brochure
  2. Opportunity to comment on the wording for the Land Use Bylaw wording on sport ramps
  3. Mandatory bylaw for building maintenance
FEATURED AND HELPFUL RESOURCES
City of Calgary Waste & Recycling bylaw changes now require on-site recycling practices, so we encourage all our members to review the City’s guide for adopting (or improving) your recycling programs. Community associations with buildings will need to educate renters about on-site recycling requirements. Community associations will be liable for potential fines and penalties should your renters be non-compliant. See the below resources for helpful information.
