A new skating rink in Calgary Buffalo
Winter can be quite beautiful in Calgary-Buffalo. Throughout January, I spent time in the community, and was proud to partner with the Beltline Neighbourhood Association to build a family skating rink at the historic Lougheed House lawn. Supported by Adopt-A-Rink, this new rink is a place to enjoy with friends, family, and a nice cup of hot cocoa. Later this month BNA and Lougheed House will be hosting a curling cup in partnership with community organizations. You can contact my office for further details.
I also had the chance to hold an open house at the end of January. I was able to connect with Calgary-Buffalo constituents about their concerns, and also provide further information on what our government has been doing for Albertans.
I am also happy to announce that the Alberta Government will be providing funding in the amount of $24 million to the City of Calgary’s Centennial Planetarium Rehabilitation project. This funding will be provided through the Municipal Sustainability Initiative, and is greatly welcomed by the Calgary-Buffalo community. The new home of Contemporary Calgary will be transformed from a neglected science centre to the epicentre of Calgary arts and culture. The contemporary art gallery will attract a diverse range of artists and provide the city with a new cultural destination. nt cultural destination.
