Outdoor Walks In Calgary

There are many beautiful pathways, bike trails, cross-country ski tracks, and more to discover within Calgary’s outdoors! From Glenmore Park to the river paths to Nose Hill Park, there are so many new paths for you to explore – while still keeping your safe distance during self-isolation and getting in some exercise!

Watch the Calgary Zoo’s 24 hour “PandaCam” live feed of the giant pandas! While the Zoo may be closed, you are still able to watch these furry creatures from your home!

Hello Ward 4 Residents,

Saturday, April 25

Noon – 3:00 p.m.

The City of Calgary will be available to discuss the following topics:

  • Building and code requirements
  • Electrical
  • Plumbing
  • Secondary suites
  • Land Use Bylaw & Permits

There will be four presentations that will cover the most common topics homeowners ask about. They will talk about any rules you need to be aware of, safety requirements and frequent issues that come up so that you know what to avoid!

  • 12:30 p.m. Building & Permits
  • 1:00 p.m. Electrical
  • 1:30 p.m. Plumbing
  • 2:00 p.m. Secondary Suites

City experts will be on hand to answer questions, give advice, and help you manage your home renovation with confidence.

Visit calgary.ca/myhome for more details.

 

Renting out a basement suite can seem like a great idea at first. But did you know you are responsible for installing safety measures like smoke alarms and safe window exits? The City must inspect your suite to make sure it meets all safety requirements.

There are still many suites in Calgary that do not meet The City’s safety and building code requirements. As a result, we are actively encouraging citizens who own secondary suites to apply for the necessary permits before June 1, 2020.

After June 1, the amnesty period approved by Council ends, and The City will no longer waive the fees for a development permit ($471) and the online suite registry ($232). Any new suites will need to comply with the current Alberta Building Code which has additional safety requirements.

If you own a secondary suite, even if you do not intent to rent it out, you must apply for the necessary permits. After June 1, 2020 penalties and fees apply for unsafe suites. Visit calgary.ca/suites or call 311.

Thank you for your attention,

Councillor Sean Chu, Ward 4
