Plows are ready to roll into residential areas

City crews are gearing up to start Snow Zone Plowing and residents are reminded to sign up for Snow Zone Alerts to get text, email, and phone call reminders before they need to move their vehicles off the street.

Snow Zone Plowing (residential) will begin on January 20 on Green Routes (Collector Roads and Bus Routes) in Snow Zone H; Grey Route (Residential Streets) plowing in Snow Zone H will follow on January 24. Plowing will continue alphabetically through Snow Zones until complete. Parking restrictions will be in place during plowing in each Snow Zone, which could be a few days at a time.

“It should only take our crews a day or two to plow Green or Grey Routes in each Snow Zone, but it does take us a lot longer if vehicles are left parked on the streets,” said Public Works Manager Greg Sikora.

“When we’re plowing Green Routes, you can park your car on a Grey Route, which is usually justaround the corner. It is the same case for Grey Route plowing; if you really need to park on the street,you can park on a Green route. That’s why we don’t plow Green and Grey Routes in a Snow Zone at the same time,” he continued.

There are many different ways for residents to learn the schedule:

  •   Sign up for Snow Zone Alerts at reddeer.ca/notifyreddeer to get text, email or phone call reminders before plowing starts in their Snow Zone
  •   Check the schedule online at reddeer.ca/snowzone
  •   Follow the City of Red Deer on Facebook and Twitter for daily updates
  •   Call the Snow Zone Hotline at 403-406-8796
  •   Look for signs at neighbourhood entrances and on Green Routes

     

    “We know it is hard to remember exactly when plows will be in your area, which is why Notify Red Deer is such a great tool for residents to use,” said Sikora, “It takes just a few minutes to sign up and you get a text, email or phone call – whichever you prefer – to remind you to move your car.”

    During Green Route plowing, residents will find no-parking signs along the street. Parking restrictions are in effect from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Saturday while plowing is scheduled, and vehicles left onthe street will be ticketed and towed at the owner’s expense.

    During Grey Route plowing, residents will notice signs at the entrance to their neighbourhood. Parking restrictions are in effect from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Friday while plowing is scheduled and vehicles left on the street are ticketed and plowed in. Parking restrictions are not in effect on weekends.

    “We are reaching out to residents to help us get residential roads clear as quickly as possible,” said Sikora. “If we work together, we can get streets cleared and get out of your way fast. We are asking residents to be a part of the program and ensure the streets are free of cars before we head into yourneighbourhood.”

    Residents are encouraged to visit the City’s website at reddeer.ca/snowzone for details about the program, schedule updates, and to sign up for Snow Zone Alerts.

The full January 2020 Snow Zone Plowing Schedule is attached, and will be kept up to date on our website.

Collicutt, GH Dawe, and Michener Aquatic Centres to open in mid-July

Published on

From the City of Red Deer

City to begin phased reopening of recreation facilities

A phased and gradual reopening of indoor and outdoor recreation amenities will begin next week and continue throughout the summer. Different amenities will reopen at different times to ensure the safety of staff and facility users per provincial public health orders.

“We are excited to welcome citizens back to our facilities, but opening them within the new provincial health guidelines and restrictions takes planning, and we have had to make significant adjustments to our operations,” said Shelley Gagnon, Recreation, Parks & Culture Manager. “The experience will look and feel a little different for our residents when these amenities reopen.”

Operating hours at some facilities will be adjusted and access to facilities and programs will be limited and controlled to comply with provincial guidelines. This could include booking time slots to use fitness equipment or designating specific public swimming times, track access and sport activities.

The tentative timeline for amenity openings is as follows:

  • June 24 Community bookings will open for sports fields, picnic shelters and bookable park spaces including Great Chief Park, Setters Place, Bower Ponds Stage. The Lindsay Thurber track and field amenities will also be available for bookings. The City is working with user groups to confirm previous bookings and understand future demand.
  • MidJuly:
    • Collicutt Centre – Fitness areas, access to the track and use of the field house will be available for controlled, limited access. We also expect to have the pool open, primarily for swimming lessons and public swimming.
    • G.H. Dawe Community Centre – We expect to have the pool open, primarily for swimming lessons and public swimming. The gymnasium will open for controlled, limited access. Fitness areas will not open immediately.
    • Michener Aquatic Centre – We expect to have the pool available for controlled, limited lane swimming and some aquatic fitness.
  • The Recreation Centre will remain closed for the time being. We continue to assess and understand demand for facilities, program and services as part of this phased approach to opening. As previously announced, the outdoor pool will remain closed for the season.
  • We are working with our organized user groups and clubs to understand demand as they plan for summer and fall programming. These groups book space in our facilities and we anticipate having space available for their use including ice, dry space and pools, by July 6th.
  • We are also excited to offer outdoor fitness programming in early July.  More details will be provided soon.

In addition, the following third party-operated facilities have been given permission to reopen while following all provincial health requirements and guidelines. Please contact them directly for operating information:

  • River Bend Golf and Recreation Area
  • Enduro Mountain Bike Park
  • Lions Campground
  • Red Deer Tennis Club
  • Red Deer Pickleball Club
  • Red Deer BMX
  • Bower Ponds Pavilion
  • Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery
  • Kerry Wood Nature Centre
  • Norwegian Laft Hus
  • Heritage Square
  • Cronquist House
  • Fort Normandeau
  • Neighbourhood Activity Centres
  • YMCA Northside Community Centre
  • Great West Adventure Park
  • Heritage Ranch
  • Festival Hall
  • Memorial Centre
  • Edgar Athletic Fields

“We are still assessing how we can safely open our spray parks, including Kin Canyon, Discovery Canyon and Blue Grass Sod Farm Central Spray and Play, while adhering to public health orders and restrictions,” said Gagnon. “Currently, outdoor gatherings are limited to no more than 100 people, so we’re working to determine how to manage these restrictions while still providing access and will have more information to share in the coming weeks.”

Registration is now open for modified summer day camps which will be held in City facilities in July and August. Visit www.reddeer.ca/daycamps for further information.

As recreation and culture amenities open, The City strongly encourages users to remain vigilant and continue exercising caution to prevent the spread of COVID-19 including washing/sanitizing hands often and staying home when feeling ill. Facility users will be required to follow all public health orders including maintaining physical distancing when possible.

Mayor Veer responds to BMO and RDC Donald School of Business leaving downtown core

From the City of Red Deer

Mayor Tara Veer responds to downtown economic sustainability on behalf of City Council

Our community is facing unprecedented challenges, navigating the perfect storm of a global health crisis and an already unfavourable economic climate. BMO Bank of Montreal, a significant anchor in downtown Red Deer, has announced their intention to close their downtown and south Red Deer branches. The company will consolidate these local branches to a new branch in Bower Place. Following a briefing from Bank of Montreal officials, it is The City’s understanding that this is part of the planned change for the bank, and all other branches remain open in Red Deer.

This announcement closely follows the news that Red Deer College’s (RDC) Donald School of Business will move some student programming from the downtown campus to the main campus. RDC will continue to offer Continuing Education and English as a Second Language (ESL) courses at their downtown location. I spoke with the RDC Board Chair and we discussed the changing model of RDC and the future of RDC in the downtown. RDC reiterated their commitment to the downtown campus and the fact that ESL and Continuing Education programs will continue to bring students to our downtown.

We know that downtowns are the heart of any city and that they play a vital role as our communities’ business, administrative, and cultural centres. City Council has prioritized work on the strategic goal of ensuring a strong, dynamic local economy and a revitalized downtown and have identified this in our 2019-2022 Strategic Plan. As an example, earlier this year The City launched a new economic incentives program for the downtown and adopted other initiatives to strengthen our local economy. For additional information, please visit The City’s website at www.reddeer.ca and search downtown economic incentives and economic leader.

We remain committed to fostering a strong, diverse local economy, which includes a thriving downtown. We will continue to invest in and support businesses in the downtown and throughout our community, ultimately working to ensure long-term sustainability and viability and to support our community through these unprecedented times.Ct
