City of Calgary Skateboard Ramp Bylaw – Final Vote November 7th

The updated “sports ramp” (skateboard ramp) bylaw goes to City of Calgary council on November 7th for final approval. Administration has been working on the wording and technical aspects of the bylaw and now council must vote on it.33

On June 20th, council voted to “Direct administration to prepare amendments to Land Use Bylaw 1P2007 that would implement the proposed regulations set out in Attachment 2“, meaning city staff could keep working on the bylaw changes. The vote was 10-5 with the following councillors against:

R. Pootmans, A. Chabot, S. Chu, D. Colley-Urquhart, P. Demong

On September 22nd, the Calgary Planning Commission recommended that council approve the new ramp bylaw.

If you support having the ability to have a ramp in your yard, feel free to contact these councillors  mentioned above and respectfully explain why this new bylaw is needed. A lot of work has been done regarding the perceived noise of ramps and the city’s studies have shown that ramps are no louder than any other recreational activities that people participate in on their property.

You may also attend the council meeting on November 7th to support changes to the skateboard ramp bylaw by speaking in City of Calgary council. #calgaryskateboarding
