Silvera for Seniors is excited to begin preparing the Elbow Valley site for redevelopment. Site clearing and grading, installation of underground utilities including storm, water and sanitary services and the development of a temporary access road are all required before any development can begin. The future 50 Ave. SW running parallel to Glenmore Trail will be completed at a later date.

Beginning in early September you will notice the following activities on the site:
• Surface markings, including laneway marking by Alberta First Call;
• Movement of heavy equipment on to the site;
• Site clearing, including removal of some trees, grading and fencing;
• Stockpiling of earth and fill materials;
• Construction of a new temporary road; and
• Access trenches for the underground utilities.

If the weather is favorable, WHISSELL Contracting Ltd. anticipates work will be completed by early November.

As this work is being done, please note the following:
• For your safety, please do not enter the fenced-off construction areas.
• Contractors will follow City of Calgary’s standards for dust and noise.
• It is anticipated work will be done during daytime hours, and follow
City standards of 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. weekdays and Saturdays.
• Trucks that haul materials to and from the site will be covered.
