Drive for renewing memberships in January. Denise is passing it on to Geraldine.
Candice – Newsletter January 12th deadline. Need a Skating Day date.
Community Development – Money for improving the facilities needs to be spent before the next meeting. Money has been allotted to facilities. Peter Hailey? He was in charge of getting the deck redone.
Debra is going to contact Peter about the Development Committee meetings.
Need date for skating party – ML emailed Elisa to request date
Facilities – Tina away. Bob Merchant would like to help with the deck.
Traffic – Bob Weaver – in October, he walked around with members of the City of Calgary’s Roads Engineer and District Supervisor (and one other, didn’t get title).
We need to improve signage. Standardize no turn signage and extend 8:30am to 9:00am. Bob is going to write a letter to the City asking for the extended time. We need to address cut through traffic, Mount Royal Highway and Royal/8 St (ie. Speed bumps).
Maintenance agreement with MRC and the City - History - refused to sign.
We plant the islands and splitters and maintain them. The City recognizes that, but MRCA would be liable. Jeff Halloway wrote up some discussion points, he also says the agreement does not mention liability. Bob will draft an agreement and send to the City.
Urban Forest and Graffiti – Charlene
She would like two people to help remove graffiti. She would like more trees planted around community house. Would like to change fence along 10 St (chain link fence). Some would like to change tennis fence.
Safety – Megan
Liaison officer is different. She has contacted the new guy : Constable Goundrey District 2-2 and 2-3. She is concerned about basement suites. Nenshi is passing a law which allows secondary suites. Cameras going into community hall. We should be able to monitor them via the internet. Jane Perry is in charge.
Playground – Candice
Solid surface $175,000 quote, but with grants and the city, it can be $20,000-50,000.
Look into March 15th application and a Sub-committee meeting in Feb. Does it extend to the basketball court?
Chain link fence-options for upgrade or replacement
Parking – Bob
Parking in MR. Concerns are 7 St. & 10 St. & Earl Grey. Can we put up parking restrictions, passes or hours? Needs more research.

John Merrymen was Committee Liaison, was here to oversee in the past, but not in attendance Dec 6th meeting.
