The Mount Pleasant Community Association has been closely following the current situation related to the COVID-19 pandemic. With guidance from the Government of Alberta, and The City of Calgary, along with best practices of the Federation of Calgary Communities, and with careful consideration, the Mount Pleasant Community Association has postponed all events, programs and closed the Mount Pleasant Hall and Sportsplex. Today, we are also cancelling the 2020 Soccer Program. When the restrictions lift and when better weather is here, we will be looking to launch a soccer activity for kids and families over the summer, if possible. To ensure you are informed of what is happening in Mount Pleasant, sign-up for the digital newsletter here.All those who have registered will be refunded the soccer program registration fee. The Mount Pleasant membership fee of $10.00 will not be refunded. Soccer refunds will be issued via PowerUp and will show up on your credit card. Please allow for 3-4 weeks for refunds to be processed. We had more that 315 children register this year and it may take some time to process all of the refunds. The Mount Pleasant Community Association is also looking for ways in which to keep up our spirits, digitally or at a distance from each other. If you have an idea that you would like to lead or would like to volunteer, please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. How ever you choose to help, it is nice to know that we are all in this together and that we as friends and neighbours will come together as a community to help each other

As your president, I have been working proactively with the Board to ensure we are making decisions that best protect the Mount Pleasant Community, our city, Province and country. We believe this is a prudent measure that allows us to play a constructive role in containing the situation.While we are closing our facilities, the Mount Pleasant Community Association is looking for ways in which to keep up our spirits, digitally or at a distance from each other. If you have an idea that you would like to lead please get in touch by email at email@example.com . Maybe you are a great story teller? Maybe you have an idea for a performance art project? Maybe you can teach a skill? Maybe you can entertain us with a live music performance?

PLEASE DON'T PLANT TREES ON CITY PROPERTY WITHOUT CITY PERMISSION
Given that we recently had a local community member planted some trees in the green space on 20th Ave (Dog Park) and on the boulevard the City has provided the following key point:
Trees and shrubs are regulated under the Street Bylaw and under section 68(6) : No owner or occupant of private property adjacent to a Street shall plant any trees, plants, or shrubbery of any nature on the Boulevard without first obtaining a line assignment and excavation permit from the Director, Roads. – Essentially to plant on a city boulevard you need permission from the Roads Department
All trees planted by Urban Forestry are sourced in accordance with the Clean Plants Program. This insures that the plant material we receive is free from pests and disease. The introduction of unknown trees and shrubs into a greenspace could potentially bring pest or disease that has an overall impact on the urban forest.
Urban Forestry would not be aware of the “ random trees” so they would not be added into our inventory system. Our tree inventory is how we determine maintenance schedules, watering schedules, and regular inspections for health and risk.
Appropriate placement and planting is essential so there is no interference or damage caused to underground utilities. Proper placement also allows maintenance activities such as mowing to remain efficient, and allow enough spacing so machinery and trees are not damaged.
