Give Back to the Community
There are many ways to be active in the community, from hoeing in the garden, to participating in MCA-sponsored programs and events like the seniors social or the community clean-up, to volunteering.
The community garden is operated by a group of local people who just enjoy growing their own food, spending time outside, learning from each other’s gardening knowledge, and having fun.
The garden does not have assigned plots; instead we all work together and share the output of the garden equally. The Community Garden meets regularly and has organized work parties, but of course people a welcome to work on their own as well.
An annual garden membership costs $20 (plus an MCA membership, of course) and is open to all MCA members.
No gardening experience necessary!
The garden is located at the corner of 48th Street and Montalban Ave NW, next to the playground. For more information contact the community centre .
The Montgomery Community Association Planning Committee reviews
applications for new development in the community including residential, commercial
and public lands. The planning committee prepares and presents the Community Association position at City Council and Subdivision and Development Appeal Board (SDAB) hearings. Montgomery development policy implementation follows the Montgomery Area Re-Development Plan, In-fill Guidelines for Inner-City Communities and City Land Use By-Laws.
Roads, Parks and Transportation matters are generally vetted through this committee. Members of this committee co-operate with neighbouring Community Associations on regional planning matters on such committees as the South Shaganappi Area Development Council (SSADC), the South Shaganappi Area Strategic Planning Group (SSASPG), the West Campus Lands Consultation Committee, the Bowmont Natural Environment Park Committee (BNEP) and others. They attend civic education sessions, workshops and provide early input into civic planning initiatives.
Planning Committee meetings are held on an as-need basis, usually once per month, all year round.
