CKE Community Engagement Survey

April 10, 2022

The results are in. A total of 544 residents completed the online community survey questionnaire developed in consultation with the CKE Community Association Board and the research firm of Stone-Olafson. All CKE residents were invited to participate.

You can view the survey summery here:  CKE Community Engagement Study Final

The highlights are as follows:

  • The biggest concern among respondents is keeping community schools open and viable. However, zoning/land use change and densification are also major areas of concern. Residents do not want to see an increase in multi-unit dwellings.
  • CKE residents highly value the community feel of the neighbourhood, and do not want to see a lot of new high buildings that do not match the character of the community.
  • There is a lack of trust with The City of Calgary in terms of what is good for local community development.
  • Few are in support of new types of developments in their immediate area, however there is more tolerance for larger homes on smaller properties than there is for multi-dwelling homes.
  • Residents want to see densification concentrated in the downtown core and along major transportation corridors and undeveloped commercial sites.
  • There is strong opposition to the Local Area Plan in the community. Few are in support of the plan, but 56% are also unfamiliar with the details.
  • The biggest concern residents have with the LAP is the impact it will have on the style of homes and character of the community. Many moved to the community because of the larger lots with single family homes and are worried their property value will be affected with the plan. An increase in multi-dwelling homes will also increase population, bringing fear that it will make the community busier and more crowded.
  • Residents are already concerned about the speed and congestion of traffic, and the prospect of densification accelerates these concerns. There is also significant concern that more traffic will result in decreased safety, noisier neighbourhoods, limited parking availability, and decreased property value.

A copy of the survey summary has been sent to Mayor Gondek, Councillor Penner, Mr. Dalgleish (GM Planning), Heritage LAP planners, and all Heritage LAP Community Associations. By providing our city officials and all relevant planning committees the results of the survey, we strongly hope that the Heritage LAP will reflect the desires of the majority of CKE residents as expressed in the survey results.  

The winners of the 3 gift certificates are:

Janice S. from Chinook Park

Ryan S. from Kelvin Grove

Karen W. from Chinook Park

Thank you to everyone that completed the survey.

Dear CKE Resident
RE: Important Community Survey / Heritage Local Area Plan
Your Community Association is conducting a survey to gather your opinions about how our communities will continue to grow and evolve in the coming years. Feedback you provide will help leaders of the CKE Community Association better represent community views when working with The City of Calgary on the Heritage Local Area Plan. The goal is to understand the concerns, expectations and needs of our community.
All responses are completely confidential and are being collected by a professional research firm.
The survey will take 5 to 8 minutes to complete.
As a thank you for your time, we will enter your name for a draw to win one of three gift certificates for $100 from
Empire Provisions, Cobbs Bread Bakery and Bitter Sisters.
The Heritage LAP has in progress since 2019 and is now scheduled to be considered for approval by City Council in the Fall of 2022.  Once approved, this Plan will determine what type of housing forms will be permitted in our communities. In addition to completing the survey, it is important for you to get involved and let the City know where you stand.  Watch for future opportunities to be heard.

President’s Message – September 2021

June 12, 2021

Happy September!
I know I am not alone when I say that the summer months are flying by! I cannot believe that it is September already. I hope that everyone has been enjoying the warm weather, even with all the smoke we had. Hopefully, the smoke didn’t impede too many of your plans, and you
were still able to enjoy the outdoors. My family and I were able to do some fun things before/after the smoke, such as a trip to Kelowna, bike rides, swimming, summer camps, and Heritage Park; anything to keep our kids occupied! In terms of the CKE communities, lots has been happening! The sound wall along 14th Street is moving along and should be completed soon. It’s being built three meters west of the original location, due to utility line complications. The Roads Department is building the wall higher to account for the lower grade of the new location. We had another successful bottle drive, and we were able to bring in $2,085!! This is an amazing contribution and will help CKE greatly. Thank you so much to our volunteers and everyone that contributed. Coming up on September 26, we have the CKE Fall BBQ! Don’t miss out on this amazing event, our volunteers work so hard to organize this and it will be so much fun. We will have some games, food, and drinks! I hope to see you all there. We are looking for volunteers for this event as well, so if anyone can help, please send us an email at; we would really appreciate anyone that can help! Also, a reminder that our CKE Community Hall is a fabulous
place to host events! It can accommodate corporate events, birthday parties, weddings, anniversaries, social events, and more! It is available for rent on an hourly or daily rate, so please get in touch with Jen at if this interests you. If anyone wants to chat at any time, please feel free to reach out via email at
