A bit of clean-up...

As mentioned in the above post, Eamon's was discussed at the June 19, 2013 meeting of Council's Transportation and Transit Committee. A proposal to assist in the adaptive re-use of Eamon's was put forward by the Bearspaw HIstorical Society. 3.7 EAMON'S BUILDING UTILIZATION AND FUNDING UPDATE, TT2013-0452 Here is a link to the agenda/minutes/video. http://agendaminutes.calgary.ca/sirepub ... pe=MINUTES

The item was dealt with subsequently In Camera at the July 22, 2013 Council meeting. There are some interesting submissions in the Council package. 5.3 EAMON'S BUILDING UTILIZATION AND FUNDING UPDATE, TT2013-0452

It was again dealt with in public at the July 29 Council meeting:

We have since learned that the infrastructure to restore the Eamon's building to its original location was installed at the Rocky Ridge Royal Oak station, which was the next step to return the building to the site.

Demolition looms for vintage service station

City hall staff want to set the doomsday clock for the Eamon’s heritage service station that has been in storage since it was moved off the site of Tuscany LRT station.

If there’s no use for it found by Halloween 2015, it should be demolished or otherwise unloaded, a council committee report states.

My name is Terri Trembath - a VJ over at the CBC. I'm hoping to interview a couple people who are concerned about the Eamon's building and its fate. If anyone out there wants to speak up, and isn't too camera shy, please email me ASAP. I'm filing today :) terri.trembath@cbc.ca - Thanks!
