We are NOT canvassing for money

The Community Association is NOT going door-to-door asking for funds.  

We have just had a report from Lyall Street that a man in his 20’s is going door-to-door, saying he is “representing the Community”.

Residents should always be cautious of anyone they do not know who asks for money.  Be sure you know who you are dealing with.

Winter Carnival Photos and Rummage Sale Updates

The 2017 Winter Carnival was a great success!  The weather cooperated, drawing many families out of hibernation for a fun afternoon of activities, horse drawn carriage rides, and Carnivale Dancers!  A big thank you to everyone who volunteered their time to ensure everyone had a great time.  Have a look at some of the smiling faces in the photos below.

The Indoor Rummage Sale is scheduled for Saturday April 21, 2018 in the Community Center.  More information will follow, including details on how to reserve a table.  The 20 tables have sold out quickly in the past, so start gathering items you don’t need anymore and keep checking the website and March newsletter for more info.

City Sets Aside $208K to Replace Play Structures in Steve MacLean Park in 2018

At a city council meeting February 6, an extra $10 million was confirmed for infrastructure spending on roads and park, which included $208,000 assigned to Steve Maclean Park / Long Park to “replace senior, junior playstructure, and play equipment.”

This project has long been a priority for the community association, as the original equipment was installed in the 1980s. It has also been near the top of city park priorities but had been delayed for some years when council eliminated that specific budget as a cost-cutting measure. Coun. Egli had mentioned at the 2017 FHACA AGM that he hoped the work could go ahead in 2019, so it is naturally welcome news that the project is now in the 2018 budget.

F.H.A.C.A. has asked that Councillor Egli advise us about the projected timelines for public consultation, design, work start and work completion.  This information is important to the Parks Committee as a result of the now reduced time framework.  We want to be involved in the Steve MacLean Park refurbishing; providing community input as early as possible in the process, as well as, searching out additional funds and community partners in order to expand the work beyond  the existing  “senior and junior play structures and play equipment”  indicated in the budget.

We will update the website as work progresses.  For the moment, residents who use the park should think about what features they would like to see in the updated play structures and what additional items we might add with any monies we are able to raise. Anyone interested in joining the Parks Committee should contact Lyn McCaw at Lyn.FHACA@bell.net
