I had the pleasure today of touring the Historic City Hall restoration project. This meticulous work will ensure that Calgary’s most important heritage building, and all of its 15,600 stones, will continue to stand for generations to come.
Speaking with @akokott early this week for @newstalk770. • Five years ago, Calgary experienced its most significant and costly natural disaster. It damaged homes, businesses, and infrastructure. It displaced thousands of Calgarians and caused great emotional distress. At the same time, the 2013 flood brought residents together in the spirit of community. Calgarians of all stripes joined forces to cope, support, clean-up, and rebuild. It was a truly remarkable display of solidarity. • While many flood mitigation projects are completed or underway, we still have more work to do to fully protect Calgary from flood. In addition to further local mitigation, Calgarians anxiously await upstream mitigation on the Bow and Elbow. I will continue to advocate for river communities to ensure that flood mitigation remains Calgary's top infrastructure priority. • I hope we will all take a moment to reflect back on the extraordinary events of the 2013 flood, especially the community spirit that was on display. Flood mitigation is not just about infrastructure. We need strong social connections to ensure our communities remain resilient.
Thanks to Michelle Hoogveld and @calgarymlc, the 4 St SE underpass is receiving a much-needed injection of colour!
Meet the new Ward 7 team member! My other staff aren’t so sure...

The redesign of West Eau Claire Park is coming together nicely. More landscape, pathway, and flood mitigation improvements are still to come, but people are already enjoying the new space. The Adirondack chairs are a nice touch. 👌 📸: @cityofcalgary
Touring the Ward with @cityofcalgary Transportation GM and staff on how to make Edmonton Trail NE and 4 Street SE not so shitty. #yycwalk #yycbike
It’s that time of year again! Be sure to move your vehicle to help City crews clean our streets efficiently and thoroughly. Yes, you even have to move your art car!

Today, Council voted to join all other major Canadian cities in allowing secondary suites city-wide. Thank you to all those who worked so hard to make this happen. Your continued advocacy for increasing access to safe and legal secondary suites finally paid off. • Residents will no longer be required to come before Council for a land use change in order to build a suite. That process was costly, inefficient, adversarial, and often arbitrary. Applications will now be handled by City Administration in a clearly defined and objective process. Neighbours will still have input into the process, with help from new rules that better define how suites fit with communities. • Drawing credit to the talented Sam Hester.
