Clarified legislation adds power for peace officers; residents must skate on 13 authorized outdoor rinks, not storm water facilities

Chestermere City Council recently passed amendments to the Storm Drainage Bylaw that clarify and strengthen expectations that residents must stay off storm water management ponds and facilities.  

“We recognize that our residents are looking for more opportunities to get outside, particularly during the pandemic, but we cannot jeopardize the lives of our citizens by allowing recreation on storm ponds,” says Mayor Marshall Chalmers. “We offer 13 other outdoor rink alternatives, so there is no need to endanger our community, and especially our children, by permitting skating on these dangerous storm water management facilities.”

Prior to the bylaw consideration, a presentation by City engineering, fire, utility, parks and enforcement officials reiterated the dangers of these engineered sites.
