City Council offering $129,000 in community grants for recreation, arts and culture programming 

Anyone who is interested in creating some new and innovative community programs or initiatives is now welcome to begin submitting applications to the Chestermere Community Grant Funding Program.
 
“The program was approved by City Council to enhance local amenities in sports and recreation, arts, culture, history and the social well-being of the residents of Chestermere,” says Mayor Chalmers. “Project proposals should provide benefit to Chestermere residents and facilitate local activities which engage a broad section of the community.”

In order for projects, programs, services or events to be eligible to receive funding from the $129,000 grant, they must:

  • Primarily serve Chestermere residents.
  • Be open to the public and/or allow reasonable public access.
  • Demonstrate the need for financial assistance and that adequate funding from other sources is not available.
  • Demonstrate active fundraising efforts.
  • Not be eligible for funding through other City based grant funding sources - United Way/Chestermere Partnership, Family & Community Support Services and/or Vitality Grants.
  • Not be a duplicate of an existing project/program/service/event within the community.

The application deadline is Friday, May 28. For more visit chestermere.ca/communitygrants

Mayor Chalmers has announced that he will not seek re-election this fall, stating:

“Over the past term on Council, I have been humbled by the trust the community has placed in me, and I am extremely proud of Council’s accomplishments...

All this good work is continuing despite the current public health and economic crisis, and I have every confidence that Chestermere is poised to reach our vision of truly being an Amazing community.

That said, after deep reflection, discussions with my family, and contemplating my future, I have decided to not seek re-election this fall.

My wife Deb and I are not leaving Chestermere, but with a sense of accomplishment and kept promises, I can confidently pass the Mayor’s chain of office to another...”.

Street Sweepers are coming to your area - find out when!

Chestermere’s 9-week street sweeping program has begun and residents are asked to move their vehicles off the streets to enable a full spring clean of our city roads. 

Chestermere has over 110 kilometres of paved roadways. A bulk sweep to pick up large debris such as gravel is done first, followed by a detailed sweep of dust and finer materials. Both sides of the road, all curbs, and medians are swept each year. 

Here is how you can make our community sweeping successful:

  1. Find when they are coming to your neighbourhood at chestermere.ca/sweeping
     
  2. Move all vehicles and other obstacles from the street during your week
     
  3. Follow the City of Chestermere on social media for updates: Updates will be posted on the City’s FacebookTwitter and Instagram pages. 

The Roads team would like to thank residents and business owners for their assistance in making street sweeping safe and efficient for all. Learn more about street sweeping at www.chestermere.ca/sweeping.
