Chestermere explores the sale of City Hall property

Situated on the shores of Chestermere Lake, City Hall is one of the most picturesque places in the community. As it is such a desirable location, Council is exploring the potential of selling the property.  

“We are serious about looking into every opportunity to increase our non-residential tax base,” says Mayor Marshall Chalmers. “City Hall sits on a highly desirable piece of lakefront property and we gain no tax revenue with our civic office being there. So we are looking at all of our options to ensure residents get the most bang for their buck.”

The property sits on 1.94 acres of waterfront property beside Chestermere Lake. With the belief that selling, renting or leasing the property could help increase non-residential taxes, Council is taking the first step to explore the option.

Get ready for the annual Kids' Holiday Store

Every single weekday throughout every year, the City of Chestermere's Family & Community Resource Centre connects with an average of 12 individuals looking for help meeting their basic needs.

To help us provide Chestermere and SE Rocky View County residents support with their basic needs, the City runs a year-round fundraising campaign called Gifts of Kindness.

As part of this fundraiser, we are asking for monetary donations as well as new or gently used items for our Kids' Holiday Store which will be held on December 14 from 1-4 p.m. at the Chestermere Regional Community Association.

There are three ways to support Gifts of Kindness and the Holiday Store:

  1. Register to bring your child or children to our Kids' Holiday Store!
     
  2. Donate new or gently used items suitable to be used as gifts for adults as well as children/youth for our Kids' Holiday Store event. Items can be brought to Chestermere City Hall, the Community Operations Building, or the Library on Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. between Tuesday, November 12th and Tuesday, December 10th.
     
  3. Donate to the Gifts of Kindness program

Chestermere Profile: Jody Nakoneshny and The Lakeshore Spa 


Jody Nakoneshny has been a Chestermere resident since 2002 and she is the owner of the Lakeshore Spa.

Before choosing Chestermere, she and her husband Rob were looking for an area with a school nearby that her two kids, Hope and Jonah, could walk to.
 
“Chestermere wasn’t on the radar at that time,” Jody says, “However learning about this new developing neighbourhood by the lake, we visited a few show homes and were sold. We’ve been here 17 years and we still call this fabulous place home!”
 
When Jody and her family first moved to Chestermere, she initially ran a home-based spa business before eventually looking at options to expand outside the home. She came across the units in Chestermere Crossing in Rainbow Falls when passing by one day and soon, all the pieces fit together one after the other, and the Lakeshore Spa was born in September 2012.
 
“Treating my clients, seeing results, helping or coaching them with a new skin care routine or watching their reaction to a fresh spray tan before their holiday affirmed my decision and I’ve had the honour of getting to know so many fabulous people in my community,” she says.
 
In an effort to highlight our local businesses we will be profiling small business owners here in the coming months. Contact us if you’re interested in being profiled or if there is a small business you want to see highlighted.
