SW Ring Road Elbow River Open House

The Weaselhead Glenmore Park Preservation Society is hosting a public open house to look at the Southwest Calgary Ring Road plans for the Weaselhead and Elbow river area. The open house, to be held on October 7th and moderated by former MLA Dave Taylor, will feature presentations by Alberta Transportation, Cows and Fish and the Miistakis Institute, as well as the Weaslehead/Glenmore Park Preservation Society itself.

The presentation by Alberta Transportation looks to be the only public presentation of the SW ring road plans before the Province begins their own ring road information sessions later this month.
