Tuscany is a growing community of almost 20,000 residents. As the community nears completion, it is crucial that amenities be designed to attract & engage residents at every stage of life. To date, Tuscany offers an abundance of facilities geared to preschoolers and younger children. Aside from self-guided activities in Twelve Mile Coulee, however, there is nothing available for our youth and young adults. The Tuscany Community Association’s motto is: Growing a Safe, Healthy and Enjoyable Community. We are also members of Communities ChooseWell, an Alberta Recreation & Parks Association initiative. We believe in & support healthy eating, active living, and social well-being. We are working with the TMC Parent Association, the CBE, and the City of Calgary to build an Outdoor Fitness Area on public land located adjacent to the school grounds. This amenity will provide Tuscany youth a safe, free, community-based site for recreation & gathering, as well […]
The Tuscany Community Association is working with local residents to adjust to the new demands for parking that have arisen with the recent opening of the Tuscany LRT Station. Based on some of the questions we have received so far, we have compiled a list of common questions (and answers) for residents that may be wondering about parking issues near the LRT.
It’s that time of year to start daydreaming of springtime and getting outdoors! The Tuscany Community Garden is entering its fourth season and will be opening registration for its 38 garden plots from April 1 to 22nd. It’s pretty straightforward—all that is required is that you purchase/renew your Tuscany Community Association Membership, register online for a garden plot, and submit a rental fee of $35.00. Everything can be completed online at TuscanyCA.org/membership. We also appreciate it if gardeners can spend a few hours of volunteering over the course of the season to help with weeding and watering of the flower beds and trees. It’s a great opportunity to grow local in a pesticide-free environment, meet your neighbours, and teach your kids where food really comes from! For more information go to tuscanygarden.wordpress.com.

The Tuscany Community Association met today with the President of the Bowness Community Association to ask how Tuscany residents can help at this point. The Bowness Community Association has a very organized crew, and the rebuilding is well underway. Most of their volunteers have now been redeployed to High River. A few Tuscany residents have asked the Tuscany Community Association and the Tuscany Residents Association how they can help and whether we have organized anything to help victims of the flood. The community associations in Bowness and Tuscany do not have the ability to distribute donations of food and clothing, so as much as those intentions are appreciated, we encourage people to hold onto their items for another week or so, and then take them to NeighbourLink or the Calgary Drop-In Centre, where they will be efficiently distributed to people who are in need. The best way people can help […]
Planning of a new development is in the works along the north stretch of Tuscany Way in our community. The planning is still early in the process, and the potential builder has applied for a land-use redesignation with the city to slightly increase residential density on the site before they proceed. Below you can find a copy of the conceptual site plan that the Community Association received, as well as our comment on the proposed land-use redesignation to the city of Calgary:
What kinds of natural disasters can occur in Calgary? If you said “none”, you’d be mistaken. Many Calgarians think natural disasters like earthquakes, floods, hurricanes and tornadoes happen in other places. While we may not be subjected to huge superstorms like Sandy or Hurricane Katrina, we have our own potential problems.
The Silver Springs Community Association is working hard to save the public outdoor pool in their community (see a recent article that appeared in the Calgary Herald). A recent Pool Information Open House held in February was well attended and had residents from nearby communities in attendance. The proposed pool renovation has been postponed and The City of Calgary with the input of Silver Springs Community Association are looking at other renovation options. The Silver Springs Community Association and the City of Calgary will meet Friday, March 15 to discuss options for the potential renovation of the Silver Springs Outdoor Pool. The SSCA invites pool users from Silver Springs and other communities who have ideas about the structure of a potential renovation, potential fundraising options, or any other constructive ideas regarding the project to contact the SSCA via email prior to March 14. Please respond to firstname.lastname@example.org
Following an Open House by Synergy Planning Inc. and the Foothills Lutheran Church, some new materials regarding a proposed development to build a church and a multi-family residential complex have been received by the Tuscany Community Association.
