Community associations get creative in effort to engage citizens | Calgary Herald

Community members will be cooking in Inglewood, building in Bridgeland and splashing in Sunalta, this coming year.

In an effort to engage citizens, bring together neighbours and keep their halls and services relevant, community associations in Calgary are getting creative.

Reporter Annalise Klingbeil takes a look at the one-of-a-kind initiatives that three local community associations worked on in 2014.

You never know who you’re going to find at the Calgary Tool Library, a volunteer-run tool lending program located in the lower level of the Bridgeland Riverside Community Association hall.

“One of my favourite things about the Tool Library is it brings together the most unlikely people,” said co-founder Courtney Hare.

“Volunteers could include a petroleum engineer, a mixed martial artist and a tradesperson, all working together in one shift.”
