A School Naming Committee comprised of six Tuscany community representatives, Calgary Board of Education trustees and administration was convened to bring a recommendation for the name of the new elementary school being built in Tuscany to the Board of Trustees. The committee would like your input for naming this new school. The committee will only consider names that follow the Board of Trustees’ Guiding Principles (see survey). Please complete this survey prior to June 8, 2015. It is important to note that this is not a vote, but rather an opportunity for input.

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.
TWELVE MILE COULEE SCHOOL OUTDOOR FITNESS AREA Twelve Mile Coulee School opened in September, 2012, and this new middle school currently has a population of 850 students Grades 4 – 9, with a capacity of 900. Although there are parks and playgrounds in the neighborhood, they are neither accessible during the school hours for students, nor were they designed with middle school aged children in mind. We are collaborating with the Calgary Board of Education, and the City of Calgary, to build this outdoor fitness area on joint use land on the school grounds. We have received tremendous support from Tuscany School Council and Tuscany Community Association for this project. Aside from offering an extension to the Physical Education program at TMC School, the outdoor fitness area will provide a reprieve from the children’s studies, a place to play and expend some energy during their breaks, as well as an […]
In the spring of 2012, the Tuscany Community Association received notice that Rogers Wireless was planning to erect a cellular tower on the east side of 12 Mile Coulee Park, near Villa d’Este (click here for details). The plan created a bit of a stir with some residents, and on April 26, 2012, Rogers Wireless arranged an open house at the Tuscany Club to engage with our residents. The TCA also solicited feedback from the community and sent responses to the proposal to Rogers and the City of Calgary (click here to see the responses). The TCA recently received notice from Rogers Wireless with a revised plan to construct a cellular tower in the community. The location and type/height of the tower have changed, to address some of the community’s concerns. The details of this plan that were provided to us by Rogers are provided below. The new location is further […]

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:
