Crucial progress made

Another milestone met

Yesterday, March 5, 2020, The City of Calgary, Landform and Water for Riley signed the contract that grants permission for the drinking fountain to be installed.

We were all so relieved. The contract has been months in negotiation to get the language right. Everyone worried the construction season would arrive before the paperwork was ready. Thanks to Parks Department staff for making sure the documents arrived and to Chris at Landform who made a special trip to our community to sign it in person. Symbolically, we sat together and signed the contract on a picnic table in Riley Park.

In case you wondered, not that anyone ever did, here’s the legal description of the land upon which the drinking fountain will be installed.
