Just a quick reminder for your community members when they keep their vehicles in garages that it is just as important to keep their vehicles locked and the keys secure in the residence and not leave the keys in the garage.
We have seen in the past few days where garages have been entered via the overhead/man door and vehicles stolen where the keys have been either left in the vehicle or on the side of the garage.
Furthermore, this information is to help assist the members of our community during these extremely challenging times. The following are a few of the trends unfolding in the City of Calgary that will inevitably impact community members in our area as the circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic continue to unfold.
Things to watch for:
- Closures of public venues such as malls, public libraries and recreation centres could result in the vulnerable segment of our cities population being displaced. With decreased vehicle and pedestrian traffic on the streets, the vulnerable sector who may have traditionally relied on panhandling may resort to criminal activity as a means of income. The vulnerable sector may also be looking for alternative locations to sleep/stay warm which could result in this vulnerable segment of our population using force to enter premises looking for a place to spend the night.
- Continued targeting of closed restaurants and pubs for cash and/or alcohol.
- Continued thefts from liquor stores which could progressively shift to Break & Enter (smash and grab) and robbery events as people become more desperate.

Similar to other Canadian municipalities, The City of Calgary is considering a bylaw that would enact temporary regulations requiring the wearing of masks or face coverings within indoor public premises. For the purpose of the bylaw, public premise means all or any part of a building, structure or other enclosed area to which members of the public have access.
With this consideration, the temporary removal of masks or face coverings would be permitted for the purpose of specified services where required (for example, eating in a restaurant or for recreational purposes).
Please use this survey to provide feedback by July 10 at noon:

Neighbour Day is a yearly celebration of Calgary’s strong community spirit. It started in 2014 in honour of the incredible support and generosity Calgarians showed after the 2013 floods. Now it’s an opportunity to connect with our neighbours, show how we care for each other and celebrate how we make Calgary a great city.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever that we connect with our neighbours. But we must do so while practicing physical distancing to keep everyone safe. We are encouraging all Calgarians to plan and host virtual events and try some of the activities at the link below with your neighbours. Share your Neighbour Day celebrations on any social media platform using #yycNeighbourDay for a chance to be featured on City channels.

This note is to inform you that a watermain break has occurred at Quarry Gd SE. Currently there are 20 residential properties experiencing water service disruption.
This break is considered a high priority and, if necessary, our crews will be working extended hours to get the break repaired as safely and as quickly as possible.
Our goal is to restore water service as soon as possible. Water Services evaluates water main breaks on a priority basis taking into consideration number of people out of water, disruption to traffic and critical services or businesses impacted.
