Thank you to everyone who were able to attend the Community Workshop on Saturday April 14, 2018. It was great to meet people who are passionate about their neighbourhood.
'This Is My Neighbourhood' program
We will be sending out information related to the two topics discussed at the session shortly. The information on Art will include more detail on the community art options available to Milican-Ogden through This is My Neighbourhood, the process elements associated with those options and examples of comparable projects in other neighbourhoods. The information on Programming will include information on when the community walking program will begin and how that will move forward.
The micro-grant program is being finalized. The Neighbourhood Micro-Grant will support people who want to make Milican-Ogden a better place to live. Start thinking about creative ideas you want to implement and that benefit your neighbourhood. These grants will be similar to the ActivateYYC grants. You can see the ideas that this program has supported: https://calgarycommunities.com/activateyyc/stories/.
Millican-Ogden Community Garden
Additionally, there are residents who are exploring introducing a community garden and another is looking at introducing a pollinating garden. If you are interested in connecting with the organizers of either the community garden or the pollinating garden, let me know and I will connect you. Also, The City of Calgary is looking at ways to provide additional support to the community cleanup and provide assistance to residents who need help getting their items to the community cleanup location at Jack Setters Arena on Sunday May 27, 2018. The community association is not going to be holding their annual carnival this year due to potential construction work occurring at the community hall. The City is looking at ways to fill that gap by organizing an event through This Is My Neighbourhood.
We look forward to continuing the conversation as we work together to implement initiatives throughout 2018 and finding ways to support each other to make these projects a success! What seed might we plant together today that could make the most difference to the future of Milican-Ogden neighbourhood?
