A message from the South Calgary Community Association
COMMUNITY OPEN HOUSE
Fire Station #5 on 14th street is the oldest active fire hall in the city…it has been in operation since 1952 and although it might be the cutest little hall in the land it is out dated, and ill equipped due to its lack in size.
The Calgary Fire Department has informed us that they are going to expand the fire station assuming the land that is presently owned by the City (land use designated as S-CS special purpose) directly north of where it is situated now.
The SCCA is hosting an OPEN HOUSE on February 9th 7:00pm in the Upper Hall, 3130 16th Street SW.
The purpose of this open house is intended for all those that have questions, concerns or for those that would like to offer input.
This is the time and place to go and to have your voice heard.
A handful of firemen, City of Calgary Department delegates, and the SCCA executive board along with Ward 8 Alderman John Mar will be there to listen and answer questions you may have.
This will be a good time to see the Outline Plan, to offer your thoughts on how the new hall should look, or to propose ideas for park to commemorate the near 60 years the present hall has served.
This is also an opportunity for you to find out the zone that our ‘lil fire hall covers and who will benefit from this expansion. Or perhaps you are concerned about the green space that this expansion will encompass, if so, we encourage you to attend this open house to see the measures they
are taking to minimize their impact or footprint and do the least damage to our parks and loss of park space.
You also may be curious as to why this expansion is even necessary or how long it is going to take.
