All aspects of Skateboarding in Calgary are restricted by City policies and bylaws that unfairly and unreasonably restrict skateboarding as a healthy, environmentally friendly, fun activity. On Monday June 21st, Go Skateboarding Day, Alderman Joe Connelly is presenting a notice of motion to council seeking their support for two initiatives:
The development of a City of Calgary Skateboarding strategy – a process that should see more skateparks and skate friendly laws and policies
The amendment of the land use bylaw to allow backyard skate ramps under certain conditions just like any other structure
Calgary Skateboarding Needs Your Help NOW!
If this motion is to have a chance to succeed The Calgary Skate Community must let every alderman and the Mayor know how much they support it. Show your support in two ways:
