February – Councillor Shane Keating’s Report


We might be in the throes of winter, but things are starting to pick up at City Hall as the Council agenda begins to fill out over the next few months. Council has a full plate this year, here are just a few examples of the issues we will be tasked with making decisions on: Next month Council will decide on the delivery model for Stage 1 of the Green Line LRT, a decision on whether or not we explore an Olympic bid will need to be made and consultations for the 2019-2022 budget cycle will begin.

Some important updates and dates to keep in mind this month:

All Aboard! Green Line LRT Engagement Sessions

2017 was a big year for the Green Line LRT. Further refinements are being made to Stage 1 of the project as we prepare for construction to begin. From January to March the Green Line team will be hosting a number of sessions and online opportunities for you to provide feedback on how the Green Line will be integrated into your community. Visit www.calgary.ca/greenline for more details.

Notice of Assessment Appeal Process

Assessment notices were mailed out to property and business owners in January. These assessments provide the property value that your property taxes will be based on. If you have concerns about your assessment, be sure to make use of the Customer Review Period. The Customer Review Period runs from January 4, 2018 until March 12, 2018. Changes to your assessment will only be considered if an inquiry is received during this period. For more information please visit www.calgary.ca/assessment.
