        CItY’S LAND USe bYLAW


The City of Calgary has launched a new interactive, searchable
version of the Land Use Bylaw that will make searching easier
for people looking for land use rules and information. As The
City continues to enhance its online services, accessibility and
ease of use will keep improving over time.                                      403-370-0742
“We are excited to introduce this new tool and improve the                 Diane Wilks Hibbard Studio
customer experience for those looking for information regarding         State of the Art Piano instruction
the Land Use Bylaw. Reducing the challenges for our customers               - Digital Piano - Classical Pop Jazz Rock
was the primary reason for this work; “says Nelson Medeiros,                     - 15 years teaching experience
Lead Planner on the Land Use Bylaw Team. “This tool will              - Piano Exam Preparation / Theory Exam Preparation
allow City staff to shift their focus from helping customers find
information to assisting in interpreting the Bylaw.”                                    BA (Hon) U of C
                                                                                    MA (Candidate) U of A
Other user-friendly capabilities have been added to the new           Associate Degree (LCM Piano Pedagogy) Thesis Based
tool including: An index to navigate to a chosen topic in the
bylaw based on keyword; links for cross-references to various
sections of the bylaw in order to easily find specific information;
and links for defined terms and defined uses that will bring up
the relevant definition in a small pop-up window.

Some common items that customers reference in the bylaw
include: fence regulations, building a garage or shed, building
an addition to a residence, decks, home-based businesses, and
secondary suites.

The original Land Use Bylaw document will still be available in a
PDF format should customers prefer that version. The new tool
can be found at calgary.ca/landusebylaw.

             bACk tO SChOOL SAFetY
Alberta Health Services EMS would like
to remind parents and students of some
basic road safety tips as streets become
busier with the return of the school
year. Pedestrians and motorists each
have an important role to play- road
safety is a shared responsibility.

Motorists
•	    Avoid talking on cell phones,
      texting, or any other behavior
                                                                           Music for Young Children
•	    that diverts your attention away                                     •	   FREE	Demo	Class Oct 8                Ages 2-9
      from driving.                                                        •    Keyboard music program
•	    Give right of way to pedestrians who have activated
                                                                           •    Small groups
      overhead crossing lights or who are waiting to cross from
      a street corner.                                                     •    Creative Movements
•	    Remember it is illegal to pass vehicles, other than those
      that are parked, in school zones or playground zones                 Call Mila: 403-238-3066
      during posted hours.
                                                                                  mila.buchner@gmail.com
Around school buses                                                             www.myc.com/teacher/mbuchner
•	    Flashing amber lights mean a bus is slowing down to stop.
      Motorists should do likewise.
•	    No matter which direction you are coming from, STOP
      when approaching a school bus with activated flashing red
      lights - unless the bus is on the opposite side of a divided
      highway from you.
•	    Driver courtesy goes a long way. By simply being alert
      and cautious when approaching a school bus, you are
      contributing to school bus safety.

Pedestrians
•	    Cross only at marked crosswalks or street corners that
      have clear visibility from all directions.
•	    Make eye contact with all drivers before crossing the street.
•	    When activating overhead crossing lights, pause before
      stepping off the curb to ensure motorists in both directions
      have come to a complete stop.
•	    Stay within the crosswalk lines until fully clear of the road way.
•	    Obey pedestrian lights at intersections. Cross the street
      only when you see the ‘walk’ sign and only when all cars
      have come to a complete stop.
•	    If you are with young children or pets, hold your child’s
      hand firmly and keep a solid grip on leashes when crossing.
•	    Remember: children learn by observing you. By teaching
      them safe crossing habits as early as possible you can
      reduce the chance your child may be involved in a
      preventable auto/pedestrian collision.

Dancing. Then we traded in the leotards and headbands for
more fashionable Lululemon and shifted from high impact
aerobics to Yoga, Pilates, and Fusion classes. Unlike other

gain popularity. Choosing the correct Yoga, Pilates or Fusion
class can be difficult especially when there are so many different
options. This article focuses on Yoga. Watch for the next article

1.    Move More - Make it a daily challenge to find ways to
      move your body. Climb stairs if given a choice between
      that and escalators or elevators. Walk your dog; chase your
      kids; toss balls with friends, mow the lawn.
2.    Cut Fat - Avoid the obvious such as fried foods, burgers
      and other fatty meats (i.e. pork, bacon, ham, salami,
      ribs and sausage). Dairy products such as cheese,
      cottage cheese, milk and cream should be eaten in low
      fat versions. Nuts and sandwich meats, mayonnaise,
      margarine, butter and sauces should be eaten in limited
      amounts.
3.    Quit Smoking - The jury is definitely in on this verdict.
      Ever since 1960 when the Surgeon General announced
      that smoking was harmful to your health, Americans have
      been reducing their use of tobacco products that kill.
4.    Reduce Stress - Some techniques recommended by
      experts are to think positive thoughts. Spend 30 minutes a
      day doing something you like. (i.e.,Soak in a hot tub; walk
      on the beach or in a park; read a good book; visit a friend;
      play with your dog; listen to soothing music; watch a funny
      movie. Get a massage, a facial or a haircut.
5.    Protect Yourself from Pollution - Avoid smoke-filled             8.   Avoid Excessive Drinking - While recent studies show
      rooms, high traffic areas, breathing in highway fumes and             a glass of wine or one drink a day (two for men) can help
      exercising near busy thoroughfares. Plant lots of shrubbery           protect against heart disease, more than that can cause
