May 26: Calgary Marathon (running through Montgomery!)

Races starts (downtown) at 7 a.m. and the course will be active at least until 1:30.  There will be parking bans on parts of Bowness Road, 19th Avenue, and several other streets/aves. Watch for signage. Vehicles must be moved on Saturday May 25th (towing begins at 2am so first thing Sunday morning is too late!).  Calgary Police and city flaggers will let vehicles through when it’s safe to resume parking.

Come out and cheer!  It’s not every day that we have elite runners going right through our community–twice.

Give yourself plenty of extra time to get around the city on Sunday, and plan routes to stay clear of the race.

Wed., March 13: Main Streets Open House

You are invited to an open house to discuss design options for improvements to Bowness Road N.W. in Montgomery. Drop in at the community centre between 5 and 8 p.m. to offer feedback. Your input will inform design options for streetscape master plans. Bowness Road is among the first of the Main Streets projects scheduled to actually break ground. Visit the Main Streets city webpage for more information about the program.  And if you can’t come to the open house, please offer your feedback online by clicking here between March 14 and 28, 2019.
