Do you like to sing, perform, have fun?

Pitch Please is one of Calgary’s newest Barbershop Harmony Society affiliated a cappella choruses and we are seeking new members!  Though we are small in size, we are big in sound and fun!

We are currently looking for singers for all voice parts in the SSAA voice range. There is no need to read music and we welcome all experience levels.

We are looking for individuals who can commit to Wednesday evening rehearsals throughout the year and who can commit to a variety of performance dates and times as scheduled.

Details:

– No preparation is necessary. Just bring your voice and energy to participate!
– You will be asked to sing simple exercises to understand your vocal range and will be encouraged to participate within your comfort levels.

Pitch Please is LGTBQ+ friendly and open to singers of all marginalized genders who are comfortable singing somewhere in the SSAA range. We aim to provide a chorus experience that is safe and inclusive of our diverse identities.

CPS Residential Traffic Safety Unit

A Message from Calgary Police Service:

Hello,

This letter is to re-introduce The Residential Traffic Safety Unit (RTSU); a unit created to specifically address residential traffic issues.  Our strategy is to utilize citizen feedback to develop our operational response. We focus on playground zones, pedestrian rich areas and other high-risk locations identified through collision data analysis.  The RTSU is attached to the Traffic Section of the Calgary Police Service.

We strongly emphasize public awareness and education, facilitating citizen engagement by attending Community Association Board meetings to discuss the Traffic Service Request System (TSR).   The TSR is a key tool to help Calgary Police Service monitor and track traffic safety issues.  You can submit a TSR by clicking this link: Traffic Service Request

The RTSU also utilizes strong collaborative relationships with City partners on traffic concerns requiring resolutions other than enforcement (sign changes, installation of crosswalks, Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons, extension of playground zones etc.)

We can further assist by liaising with established community partnerships.  This includes MLA’s office, City Councilor offices, and Neighborhood Committee Coordinators as we continue to expand events attended by the RTSU.

Thank you,

Cst Randy MacDONALD #3787
Residential Traffic Safety Unit

A COLLABORATIVE APPROACH TO ENHANCING TRAFFIC SAFETY IN RESIDENTIAL COMMUNITIES
