December – Councillor Joe Magliocca’s Report


I would like to thank residents of Ward 2 for once again putting their trust in me to serve as your City Councillor. I will continue to keep our community informed through this newsletter and through my various social media channels. It is important to me that all residents are kept informed and as always, please contact me if you have any concerns or suggestions on how to make our community even better.

The new Rocky Ridge recreation centre recently reached a key milestone and was handed over to the Calgary YMCA. The new facility, Shane Homes YMCA at Rocky Ridge, officially opens to the public on January 15, 2018. This centre will serve all of northwest Calgary for many years to come, providing us with a wide range of indoor and outdoor recreation amenities.

With winter upon us, City of Calgary Crews are keeping an eye on the forecast all winter long, preparing roads with anti-icing solution before the snow falls, and maintaining City streets as soon as snowflakes hit the ground. Stay informed during every snowfall by following @yyctransport on Twitter and downloading the Road Conditions App for frequent updates. You can also see where crews are plowing on the live map at

After each snowfall, Roads crews follow a priority clearing system called the Seven Day Plan:

  • Priority 1 routes, which carry more than 20,000 vehicles per day, are cleared to bare pavement within 24 hours after the snow stops falling.
  • Priority 2 routes, which carry between 5,000 and 19,000 vehicles per day, are cleared within 48 hours after the snow stops falling.
  • Collector routes, playground zones, designated hills and pathways are cleared on Days 3-7.

I would like to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and all the best in the New Year.
