Hello Ward 9 Neighbours,
I am absolutely thrilled to be sharing my semi-annual newsletter with you, again. It will address some of the major projects that your Team Ward 9 and I have been working on to better our Great Neighbourhoods.
Please read and share this year’s Ward 9 Semi-Annual Newsletter with your friends, family, and neighbours.
Some of the highlights include:
- Flood & Emergency Response Update
- Green Line Southeast
- Our New Provincial Government
I want to thank you for giving me the privilege of being your City Councillor for our vibrant and passionate ward.
Strong transit infrastructure is critical to achieving Great Neighbourhoods. After years of tireless work on behalf of City Administration, City Council and numerous community leaders and non-profit organizations, the Federal Government announced that it will provide the City of Calgary $1.53 billion to fund the Green Line LRT, over 20 years. This will account for approximately 1/3 of the total construction cost of the Green Line transitway, which is slated to begin in 2017.
The Green Line is an important piece of Calgary transit infrastructure, connecting people in the Southeast quadrant of the city to the North with high-quality transit service.
The Green Line will be made up of two legs: the North leg will run from the future community of Keystone to downtown, and will connect with the Southeast leg, which will extend to the community of Seton.
