Don’t Get Taken for a Ride This Holiday Season

  The holiday season — and its usual round of office parties, New Year celebrations, and family get-togethers – is now upon us. Late nights, unpredictable weather, and perhaps a celebratory drink or two, mean that many of us will be leaving our car at home and seeking alternative modes of transport. Taxis, rideshare and limo services are a safe choice for traveling around our city. These services are regulated by The City of Calgary and must meet City safety standards before drivers can take passengers. “At The City, our number one priority is keeping passengers and drivers safe”, said Abdul Rafih, Chief Livery Inspector at The City of Calgary. “All rideshare apps provide passengers with a photo of the driver, the licence plate number and the make and model of the vehicle. They also offer real time GPS tracking so you can track the vehicle on route to your […]


The Backstory on the New YMCA Opening Jan 15

Have you heard of the new YMCA opening this January just up the road in Rocky Ridge? Maybe you are interested a bit in the backstory and how this Rec Center came to be. Here is former Tuscany Community Association president Kelli Taylor’s story…. In about 2005, the TCA sparked a project which has grown into more than we ever imagined. We invited neighbouring community associations to join with us to work towards building a recreation center in the NW. In fact, we thought at that time it could be built in Tuscany. Years later, the City became involved, and gave our dream a path to reality. The YMCA was chosen as the facility operator, and Shane Homes invested $3.5 million to become the naming sponsor. An amazing result! Tours begin this Friday, and opening day is January 15. Check it out Shane Homes YMCA at Rocky Ridge These are […]
