The Ward 7 team is changing! We must say goodbye to the illustrious Carol Armes. Her dedication to our communities is highly regarded and we will miss her dearly. At the same time, we are excited to welcome Katie Dekruyf! She is a great addition to our team. Druh, Dale, Romy, and Katie are excited to work with you for the benefit of all Ward 7 communities.
My team and I work hard to push for high-quality public spaces and private developments. The results of that work are clear with an incredibly strong showing for Ward 7 projects at the Mayor's Urban Design Awards. For a full list of winners, click the link in my profile.
The countdown is on! The New Central Library will be opening in a year from now, November 2018. The New Central Library is not just a branch, it will be a cultural gem for the whole city of Calgary.
Starting tomorrow, the Crowchild walk/bike bridge will close until Spring 2018 to accommodate bridge improvements. 14 St NW is the closest alternative crossing. #yycwalk #yycbike
Today, it was an honour to join community leaders and my colleagues from the Government of Alberta at the ground breaking for the Calgary Cancer Centre. Located in Ward 7, this incredible project will deliver a world-class cancer research and treatment centre for all Albertans. • Leading up to construction starting today, two months ahead of schedule, my team and I were working closely with the Cancer Centre project team and the St Andrews Heights Community Association to push for a design that is well-integrated and well-connected to our communities. I look forward to 2023 for when this incredible facility will open its doors.
Yesterday, the 2017-2021 Council term officially began. Over the next four years, I will continue to work with Ward 7 residents, community associations, my Council colleagues, City staff, other orders of government, and a wide variety of other stakeholders to build a bright future for Calgary.
The Peace Bridge will be closed for three Fridays in a row to help facilitate pathway improvements on the south Bow River Pathway. This work is part of ongoing West Eau Claire Park revitalisation work and is unrelated to the bridge itself. Friday, October 20 from 0830-1700 Friday, October 27 from 0830-1700 Friday, November 3 from 0830-1700 #yycwalk #yycbike
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! • Yesterday, Ward 7 residents showed their support for a Calgary that is sustainable, progressive, and resilient. They voted for safer streets, high-quality transit, diversifying and strengthening our economy, support for seniors, thoughtful development, affordable housing, flood mitigation, vibrant neighbourhoods, and accessibility for all. • I am immensely grateful to all those who voted, donated, and supported our campaign in whatever way they could. In this, the nastiest municipal election I have ever witnessed, every ounce of support mattered. • Thank you to all those who put their names forward to run, and congratulations to those who were successful. As Councillors, both new and old, we have much work to do over the next four years. • None of this would have been possible without the amazing Druh Crew volunteers! Our team was smart, talented, diverse, and dedicated. Whether you joined us for an afternoon of doorknocking or were with us for every moment, thank you from the bottom of my heart. • I look forward to working will all of you on continuing to build a bright future for Calgary.
