Dear Ward 7 Resident,
In our ongoing goal of having a transparent and open affordable housing process, the Office of Land Servicing & Housing (OLSH) has put together a short survey for Calgarians. This is their chance to have input into our development and community engagement process in developing affordable housing projects.
OLSH’s affordable housing division has previously conducted research into this topic and we have engaged citizens through public surveys, community focus groups and other means and have also met with you to get a sense of what citizens think. Research has shown that Calgarians overwhelmingly support affordable housing and acknowledge its importance. At the same time, Calgarians let us know that they want to be included in the process throughout.
To that end, OLSH has created a short 5 question survey, including two process maps that detail how we develop and build affordable housing on City-owned land, from start to finish, how we acquire projects on privately-owned land, and the subsequent communication that is needed with impacted communities.
The survey will be available from Nov. 12-29 and OLSH is promoting the survey through the Federation of Calgary Communities, direct emails to community leaders through Councillor Assistants, along with online ads and social media. We are also using the City of Calgary’s official Twitter feed to help spread the word.
Once the survey period ends, OLSH will collect feedback that will be included in a report to Council in Q1 2014.
We want to hear from you on our development and engagement processes! Please visit www.calgary.ca/housingengagement
St. John School is located on the corner of Kensington Road and 12 Street NW. Previously home to the St. John School Fine Arts program, the building has been empty since June 2012. Calgary Catholic is seeking to reopen the facility as home to its Reception Centre, which coordinates and implements district and federal immigration policies and regulations regarding the admission of new students not born in Canada.
Calgary Catholic is hosting an open house at St. John School (15 – 12th Street NW) on Wednesday, November 27 from 12 PM to 2 PM, and again on Thursday, November 28 from 3:30 PM to 7:30 PM. All members of the community are invited to come and meet with District staff and see and discuss changes proposed for the site.

After the Floods: How Can You Help Your Children
Severe flooding can be a frightening and distressing experience for children, teenagers and adults. This seminar will help parents understand children’s emotional and behavioural reactions, know how to encourage children to naturally resolve their distress, and answer children’s questions about what occurred and what might happen in the future.
