Your Community

The majority of Calgary, like Ward 14, is made up of beautiful, peaceful, suburban communities where cars and parking are a necessity, not an option. Peter is constantly on a mission to make sure those at City Hall don’t forget it. Here is just some of what Peter has done to make sure the needs of OUR communities are being addressed at City Hall:

  1. Rectangular Rapid Flash Beacons (RRFBs)

    March 2021 -  "…Frank and I fully appreciate and support all that Peter has done for our community and appreciate the way he approaches issues in a positive constructive way while also getting or at least trying to get positive results in a timely fashion. Thank you very much again.” Joanne O. from Bonavista Downs

    Rectangular Rapid Flash Beacons, you can call them RRFBs for short, are basically a better mousetrap, so to speak. They are more efficient versions of your typical lighted crosswalk, that also happen to be much cheaper to install and maintain. That means you can have more of them for the same price.

    During his first term, Peter found existing resources (so as to NOT increase your taxes, of course) to fund a pilot program of RRFBs. It was obviously a success. Today many crosswalks that would not otherwise have signals do because of his low-cost solution. In fact, they are a third of the cost of the old signals. They save up to $75,000 each. Considering there have been around 200 or so of them installed so far, you can see the savings here. They have a far higher compliance rate too, and they won the Transportation Association of Canada’s 2015 Road Safety Engineering Award. Peter fights tooth and nail to get them for his communities.

  2. Proposed Saving Anderson LRT Station Parking Spots

    If you live in the south, you know that the LRT station parking spots are in high demand. When those at City Hall proposed reducing parking at Anderson Station from 1800 down to 350, Peter fought hard to achieve a policy of a “no-net loss” parking solution. He also successfully had a motion passed to investigate park and ride locations outside of Calgary, so that out-of-town commuters aren’t also competing for parking spots at LRT stations.

  3. Proposed Research on Innovations Impact on Future City Transportation

    Peter is forward thinking and he can work well with anyone. He and Councillor Evan Woolley collaborated to produce a motion addressing some very important advancements in transportation. Our roads and transit systems are designed for the long term, but inventions like autonomous vehicles could take everything in a completely different direction or possibly even make them obsolete. Peter’s motion asked City administration to investigate the impacts of important new developments in the field of transportation.

  4. New Community to Receive New Zero Cost Off-Leash Dog Park

    In the future there will be a new community south of Chaparral Valley. Thanks to Peter Demong that community will have an off-leash dog park directly next to it. Also thanks to Peter--that off-leash park will cost taxpayers nothing. Showing just how great he is at getting people to work together, Peter negotiated with the City and the developer to build the newest off-leash dog park at no cost to the taxpayers. This developer funded park sets an extremely positive precedent for taxpayers in the future.
