Scarboro Community Background

Scarboro is a residential neighbourhood in the south-west quadrant of Calgary, Alberta. It is located in the inner city, between Bow Trail, 24th Street West, 14th St West and 17 Avenue South. The community is bisected by the Crowchild Trail freeway. The land which now comprises the community of Scarboro was originally owned by the Canadian Pacific Railway. As was the case in the community of Mount Royal, the development of Scarboro adhered to the topography of the land and street names rather than numbers were used. The community was annexed to the city of Calgary in 1907 and subdivision plans were approved in 1910 and 1911. A restrictive covenant was placed on lots, still in effect today, which restricts uses that are in conflict with the residential nature of the subdivision.

Scarboro is a small old community in relation to burgeoning Calgary. The community association has worked to maintain the overall area as an attractive residential zone for families and others. Our story is about people who have believed in our communities and whose work has made them continue as attractive places to live. The Community associations is a neighbourhood-based volunteer organization, that provides a voice for community life, an overall sense of belonging, and social, educational and recreational opportunities for their residents. Everyone is welcome to attend the monthly meetings, and particularly the annual general meeting, where many community members purchase or renew their Community Association Memberships.
