Public Hearing Times Survey (Jan 20-Feb 3, 2022)
Chestermere’s City Council is considering adjusting the times when Public Hearings are held.
Public Hearings are formal opportunities for City Council to hear from anyone who may be impacted by a proposed bylaw or resolution. They are typically held on Council meeting days (Tuesday). They are required to be held prior to major municipal changes (e.g. land use regulations, control of a corporation, sale of municipal reserve land, etc.) and are usually held after first reading of a bylaw has been passed.
The survey will be open from January 20 – February 3, 2022. Following the survey, results will then be posted to this page.
Oakmere Way Playground Equipment Replacement
- The City is committed to providing safe play spaces for all residents. Through regular safety inspections the City has identified aging play equipment at the Oakmere Way playground (152 Oakmere Way) that will need to be replaced in Spring/Summer, 2022. The Parks Division collected feedback through an online survey, open from Dec. 15th - January 14th.
Thanks to everyone who participated in the Oakmere Way Playground Equipment Replacement online survey. We received a great response with 55 participants.
We learned a lot about what users thought our parks team should consider for replacement equipment. You can find the detailed survey results here.
To summarize, you told us:
- You do not want alternative replacement options for this playground equipment like a basketball court or ice rink
- You want the City to replace playground equipment with more adventurous options like climbers and ziplines
- You feel that the playground should accommodate preschoolers and school aged kids play most
- You said swings, slides and climbing equipment was most popular with your kids
- You like having seating to watch your kids play
- You want to ensure that the playground includes accessible equipment and surfacing
Thanks for the feedback!
We will be working with our suppliers to choose the equipment and will post an update about what will be installed over the next few months. Once it is available, the City post the design information on this page.
- Open from August - October 2021
