Dear Haysboro Community Association:
We are writing to share information about a City project your members may be interested in knowing more about and participating in. The Flood Mitigation Measures Assessment project fulfills one of the 27 recommendations of the Expert Management Panel on River Flood Mitigation. The focus of the project is to develop a comprehensive list of flood mitigation measures for the city of Calgary. As part of the project, we are gathering community input which will help inform recommendations to Council.
We are creating a Community Advisory Group for this project. The aim of the Community Advisory Group will be to work collaboratively with The City’s team to evaluate and analyse flood mitigation measures in Calgary communities. Applications from are welcome until closing on Feb 24, 2016.
There are many opportunities to get involved and to share input in addition to the Community Advisory Group. For more information on the project, the Community Advisory Group and engagement opportunities, please click here.
In closing, we ask for your help sharing this opportunity. If possible, could you please put the following information on your community website or newsletter.

Community Advisory Group - Get Involved
Building resiliency to flooding is a top priority for The City. Since the 2013 flood, we have repaired, restored and recovered from devastating and costly flood damage. With much of the recovery well on its way, our focus is to ensure we build flood resilience by implementing the 27 recommendations of the Expert Management Panel on River Flood Mitigation.
Now, we are advancing further by developing a comprehensive suite of mitigation measures for Calgary through a consultative, citizen-focused approach.
The best decisions involve community input
In the upcoming months, The City will be meeting with citizens, stakeholder groups, community organizations and orders of government. The input gathered will be used to develop The City’s comprehensive suite of flood mitigation measures for the Bow and Elbow rivers.
Join the Community Advisory Group (CAG)
The City of Calgary is looking for community members from 2013 flood-affected and non-flood affected communities, business and interested representatives to participate in the Flood Mitigation Measures Community Advisory Group.
The Community Advisory Group will provide input concerning flood mitigation measures to The City, who will then make recommendations for decisions by Council.
Join us in developing the comprehensive suite of flood mitigation measures which will protect citizens, properties, critical infrastructure, vital services, communities and downtown from future river flood events.
