What's Happening in Chestermere

BOOST National coming to Chestermere in 2020 as part of the Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling

 

The City of Chestermere is pleased to announce that it will be hosting the BOOST National December 8-13, 2020, as part of the Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling series.

“This is the first time we are hosting a curling event of this scale and we are excited to welcome the best curlers in the world to our community," says Mayor Marshall Chalmers. "We would also like to acknowledge the contributions of Olympic curler and local resident Ben Hebert, for helping to bring this event here.”

The BOOST National will feature the 15 best men’s and 15 best women’s teams from around the world and will take place at the Chestermere Recreation Centre. 

Ticket information for the above events will be available online in the coming weeks. Visit our event page for more information about volunteering and sponsorship opportunities. 

Help shape the future of social programming in your city!

Block Parties. Community Gardens. Financial Literacy Workshops. Diversity & Inclusion Programs. Seniors’ Lunch and Learns.

These are just some of the many social programs that are offered right here in Chestermere. In February the City began a review to make sure these programs are meeting the needs of our community, starting with two public Open Houses hosted on Feb. 13.

How you can help:

Participate in our online survey - March 2 - 31


The survey will continue to measure the perspectives and priorities of residents, community organizations and service providers and begin to identify the themes for future programs and services. 

Join us for an interactive design lab - March 18 at Camp Chestermere

Based on the feedback from the open houses and the survey, we will again engage our stakeholders to help us develop and refine the social programs offered in Chestermere.

Notice: 2019 Tax Calculation Correction

Recently, as part of a financial due diligence exercise, City of Chestermere staff conducted a review of tax rates for the past few decades.

During this recent review, it was discovered that the 2019 rate had been miscalculated, resulting in the need to refund approximately $35 on average to each account. This will be applied as a credit which will appear on a statement to be sent to property owners.

The City welcomes discussions with residents about any topic and makes every effort to examine all concerns and questions brought forward. The review of tax notices was initiated after a resident brought forward a question about their taxes, which the City and Council committed to reviewing.

Chestermere Profile: Peter Pham and Van Son Vietnamese Restaurant


Peter Pham first lived in Chestermere as a young teen and he and his family have owned and operated Van Son Vietnamese Cuisine for the last five years. 
 
“We chose Chestermere as the perfect location for our family-run restaurant because of its small-town feel and close proximity to everything we need,” he says. “I love that I get to see my valued customers regularly around the city with the kid’s activities, grocery shopping or just grabbing a coffee!”
 
Peter also cherishes that his work has given him the chance to meet and build genuine life-long friendships. 

“Food has always been such a big part of my family life I am so grateful for the opportunity to share in so many special events like first dates, successful business meetings, birthdays, baptisms and so much more,” he 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.
