Ramsay Community Background

Ramsay is a residential neighbourhood in the south-east quadrant of Calgary, Alberta. It is an inner city community, located east of the Elbow River, Macleod Trail, Stampede Grounds and the Pengrowth Saddledome arena and south of Inglewood. To the south-east, it borders the Alyth-Bonny Brook industrial area. The eastern half of the community consists primarily of older homes and there is an industrial area in the most eastern corner of the community.
The area now known as Ramsay was developed in the 1880s by Wesley Fletcher Orr and his partners. It was named Ramsay in 1956 when residents of Burnsland, Brewery Flats, Grandview and Mills Estate consolidated as a new community. It was named for William Thomson Ramsay (1857-1921), an early land agent and property owner. It is represented in the Calgary City Council by the Ward 9 councillor. The community has an area redevelopment plan in place

Ramsay has recently undergone a great deal of infill development to replace older homes. The result is a vibrant neighbourhood, which sports an eclectic variety of architectural styles. The Ramsay community association has been active in ensuring that such development is consistent with their community vision. The community association invites resident feedback, and held a contest that allowed residents to submit design ideas. The winner, Mark Boutin, has won the prestigious Prix de Rome architectural category and his contributions are sure to allow Ramsay to continue its successful revitalization. The Ramsay community association also contains a Beautification committee, which is currently painting vibrant murals in the area. The neighbourhood is also working in cooperation with the city’s Forever Green tree planting program to fill the area with trees. A children’s garden is also in the works. In additions, Ramsay offers a number of special events for residents, including a “boot sale,” where residents sell used items in car trunks, a high tea, and an edible flower festival.

The 50-50 split for cannabis revenue was not acceptable. We will not foot the bill to fulfill the federal government's campaign promise. The deal we got is better and recognizes that provinces bear the responsibility, the risks and the regulation. #ableg…
