Save the Genesis Park

This petition had 418 supporters

There is a proposal from the city of Calgary to convert the land next to Genesis park from special recreation to multi family residential. We are opposing this proposal for the reasons below:

  • Martindale and Taradale have the highest density of population in the city. This area is already very crowded and does not need more houses and more people. It needs more amenities for existing population.
  • Reduces Recreational/Community Space. We need more area or adults and kids.
  • City did not ask the residents what they want to do with this extra land. Our needs are being ignored. NO PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT 
  • None of the questions we have raised with regards have been addressed. What is the city hiding and trying to rush this through.
  • This space is also used for parking specially for big events in Genesis.The lack of it will lead to more TRAFFIC CONGESTION.

Please sign this petition if you also are against building more residential and want this space to be left in community. To determine the best use for this space please fill the attached survey:

Please call Preet Baidwan 403-870-2770 or Gurmeet Bhatia 587-969-8503 for further questions or concerns.
