Maureen Bell has organized this meeting to discuss the Stampede Plans. Notice of Meeting Stampede Flood Preparation 2014 – will it affect your property?
Date: Tuesday March 25th 2014
Time 3 p.m.
Place –4th Floor Grandstand, south entrance, Stampede Park
Who – We have had to act quickly. We have notified as many interested people as we have been able to including the CRC and community associations. We are private land owners with an interest in ensuring the experience of the next flood is at best no worse than the last. We have kept email addresses private, where possible. We have notified Councilors and will provide notice to both the City of Calgary officials and the Province, requesting the decision makers attend to answer questions. Please share this notice with anyone you think may be interested or affected by high river flow.
Reason – the Stampede is building two flood walls and restoring the adjacent river bank. The concern is that the flood walls and restoration may reduce the channel and options for the river which may adversely impact both upstream and downstream communities (Lindsay Park???)
AMEC, the consultant for the Stampede, will present the plans and discuss the work and hopefully explain why we ought not be concerned. We will also seek to understand the approval process. The work has begun which means we must attend to any concerns we have ASAP. See the 2013 flood waters on the Stampede grounds at http://corporate.calgarystampede.com/ar2013/ The Stampede is historically in the Floodway.
We regret this meeting is booked for spring break when many people will be away but time is of the essence.
Please RSVP so we know how many to accommodate.
