Springbank Community Association Updates

Recreation -  SR1 Funds
 
Rocky View County is creating a policy to use the $10M in SR1 compensation funds and we think that our community should have a say!  We learned at Council in January that $2.2M of the SR1 funds were used to acquire the land next to the Park For All Seasons.  So far, we have no information on future plans for the land. 

Our thoughts on the funds were captured by Rocky View Weekly  The SCA wants to make sure that this money is used wisely, which includes exploring opportunities for matching grants and the creation of an endowment fund.  This money could turn into $20-30 million if used properly. Unfortunately, the money spent on the land does not appear to have been eligible to be used for matching funds, which is a tremendous lost opportunity in our view.  
 
We also believe the SR1 funds should be used for projects outside those that should be funded by regular tax dollars (for instance, both Langdon and Springbank recreation facilities are included in the Recreation Master Plan). This is an exceptional situation - and opportunity - to create legacy infrastructure and lasting benefits in the greater Springbank Community to balance the lasting environmental and health risks of SR1.  
 
 
Springbank Community Centre
 
The Springbank facility project continues to move along.  The consultant has been reaching out to area groups, service providers and others who help determine what should be in the project, how big it should be and what the operating model will look like.  The Stakeholder committee is meeting in the next few weeks and a recommendation from the consultant is expected at that time.  
 
The Springbank facility was identified in the Recreation Master Plan.  A facility for Langdon was identified at the same time.

Springbank Barnwood Reclamation project

If you are looking for reclaimed Barnwood for your project(s) you need to look no further than our own back yard. This not for profit fundraiser is solving our farmer's and rancher's problems with derelict structures by "disassembling" them and making the historical wood/materials available at a low cost to all.  Please Call Ian at 403-630-3650 for details. We also have Barnwood Picnic Tables available at $195 each.
