Hello Signal Hill Neighbours
For this early fall edition, I would like to provide a few brief highlights on some key summer events, along with a look at what’s coming up for your boardover the rest of the year.
Avenue Magazine –Signal Hill 4th Best Neighborhood
If you haven’t already seen the results of Avenue Magazine’s 2018 “Best Neighbourhood” survey, you will be pleased to hear that Signal Hill ranked 4th this year out of over 180 Calgary neighbourhoods–up from 5th in 2017. Key factors in theranking were parks & pathways, access to amenities and a safe place to live with low crime. These are all areas that your community association keeps in mind when establishing its business plan and annual goal updates. To view the full survey details and results, refer to this link to the best neighborhood article.
Hopefully you’ve had a chance over the summer to see all the activity associated with the Pedalheads Bike Camps going on at our rink area on Sienna Park Dr. This organization has provided funding support to the community, as well as bringing a productive and fun demonstration of how the community can assist its residents –particularly the kids. Both kids and parents enjoyed our park and activity areas.
Pickleball Survey Update
In the August issue I asked for anyone potentially interested in seeing Pickleball made available as part of our facilities to contact me. While the response level was relatively small in terms of the total size of our community, it was one of the most popular topics on which we’ve received feedback. We will continue to develop plans and seek additional input on the potential to offer access to this fast-growing sport next year.
Board of Directors Fall Plan
Your board of directors will be reconvening on September 12th. Key areas of focus for the fall include integrating potential new members that responded to my requests over the summer, continuing to progress our 2018 goals as per the Business Plan(available on our website) and preparing for the Annual General Meeting to be held in November.
