A heads up that construction on the 162 Avenue connection will be starting in either late July or early August.
Construction on this project will be completed by the end of the year, but the connection will remain closed until the SWRR opens to traffic in late 2021. During construction, residents may notice periodic increases in construction traffic in the area. It is also important to note that access from westbound 162 Avenue to Bridlecrest Boulevard S.W. will remain open until the SWRR is completed. Once the SWRR is open to traffic, the left turn from 162 Avenue to Bridlecrest Boulevard S.W. will be permanently closed. A noise study was conducted and determined that a noise barrier was required along the south side of the 162 Avenue extension and that will also be constructed during this time.
Here is a link to the project design, and the noise barrier is identified in this as well.

Have you recently acquired a new garden or looking to ‘spruce’ up an existing one? The addition of a tree or shrub can be the backbone of your garden design, elevating it to the next level of enjoyment. Join us in Gardening with Trees and Shrubs to discover the variety of attractive and hardy species available to revamp your home and garden. Learn to maximize the health of your tree and/or shrub by understanding the various microclimates within your garden, water conservation strategies, and the importance of mulch. Did we miss something? Don’t fret; there is an opportunity to ask questions at the end of the presentation to ensure everyone feels confident about the fresh addition to their property.

If you have the skills, knowledge and/or the enthusiasm to get involved in planning what is developed in Calgary Evergreen. We have a position for you.
The Development Director position on the Board of Directors is vacant.
This position would be in charge to help oversee and coordinate what amenities and other developments we can build in Evergreen.
Sure we can raise as much money as we want, but if we do not have someone formulating plans, and getting input from the community nothing will happen.

For CECA to build amenities in the Evergreen Community Park, including but not limited to, rink, hall, gardens, playground, etc. We would need $1M+ to raise in funding.
The best way to do this is with casino funds. We can take those casino funds and double them with government and other organization matching grants.
Currently we do not qualify for casino funds, because we have not had regular scheduled community programming running for two consecutive years. (e....g. soccer camps, learn to skate, etc.)
Here is where you can help. We need a Recreation Director and volunteer program leads, to organize programming. Once we have reached two years and beyond, we will qualify for casino funds.
Interested? Contact us at email@example.com
What you get out of your community is in part what you put in. Get Involved!
Update on SWRR gravel pit west of Bridlewood.
The morning of Apr. 11, MLA Dave Rodney 's constituency office advised that a meeting has been set up with Alberta Transportation officials to answer questions from residents in Evergreen, Bridlewood, concerning construction of the ring road, the gravel pit, and the asphalt processing plant. Dave Rodney will be present, along with Alberta Transportation personnel.
The meeting will take place on THURSDAY APRIL 20, from 7:30 to 9 pm IN THE COMMON ROOM AT GLENMORE CHRISTIAN ACADEMY. This room is accessed through the Jr. High south door along Bridleridge Hts.
This meeting will be a good opportunity to direct questions to Alberta Transportation officials and among other things, find out what specific mitigation procedures will be put in place to ensure the health and safety of residents during the years of construction.
MLA Rodney has been working long and hard for us in the fight against this gravel pit/asphalt plant; & is hoping that there will be a good turnout. If you have friends in Bridlewood or in Evergreen please encourage them to attend this meeting. We hope there will be strong representation from our communities of Bridlewood and Evergreen.
