January 2020 Ward 13 Report – Councillor Diane Colley-Urquhart


Happy New Year!

As we kick off 2021, it’s important to reflect on the incredibly challenging year we just had. And through it all, the resilience of Calgarians has been absolutely remarkable. I am committed to continue working hard in 2021 for all of you. In November, I had sent out my 2020 Year in Review that outlined the many critical projects, emerging issues, and City and Ward updates that we saw throughout the year.

Ward 13 Virtual Town Hall Meetings

With COVID-19 limiting opportunities for in-person conversations, I made the decision to host monthly Virtual Town Hall meetings for each community in Ward 13. In 2020, we were able to host meetings for Evergreen, Shawnee Slopes, Evergreen Estates, Woodbine, and Woodlands. Our next meeting will be with Canyon Meadows in February, with the other communities TBD. Please stay tuned for more details, and I encourage anyone who is interested in attending these meetings to email my office at [email protected]. More information on these meetings can be found at https://councillordiane.ca/vth/.

Our guest speakers included City Manager David Duckworth to discuss the City budget, CEMA Chief Sampson to discuss COVID-19 measures, and a special appearance from Mayor Nenshi. Thank you again to Julie Hrdlicka from CBE and Mary Martin from CCSD for joining us again.
