Caring for OUR Community
In early April we sent letters to 93 Riverbend residents who own 18th Street fences to ask them to complete a survey whether they are interested in working with other homeowners to get a group quote on painting or reconstructing their fence. We are collecting responses and compiling a contact list. If you own a fence on 18th Street and haven’t completed the survey, we would greatly appreciate your feedback using the button below.
18th Street Fences
It is the home owners responsibility to maintain fencing which helps our community maintain its character. To ensure consistent look of the community a color Riverbend Titanic Grey has been selected for painting of fences. This color can be obtained at the Riverbend Hardware and General Store (located in the Riverbend Centre: Unit 330, 8338 18 St SE ).
Property owners are required to maintain their fences in good condition as per the City bylaw. Fines can be up to $300.
Good Neighbor Guide
City of Calgary has developed a Good Neighbour Practices Reference Guide that provides an overview of municipal bylaws governing neighbourhood issues to advise residents, business owners and service providers of their rights and responsibilities as members of their community
Responsible Pet Ownership
Riverbend has many parks and pathways and it is important for pet owners to be aware of Responsible Pet Ownership bylaw 23M2006 to ensure everyone is able to enjoy our beautiful spaces. Below are some City of Calgary resources on the topic. Violations of the bylaw should be reported by calling 311.
Reporting to 311
Contacting 311 via phone or mobile app is the best way to report concerns, request services or ask questions.
If you can see, smell, or hear it and it’s a concern to you, or you just want an answer to a question about a City service, you can report it to 311.
The more residents who report things they see in their neighborhood that need to be resolved, the more data it gives The City of Calgary so that they can make sure that the right amount of resources are being provided in our neighborhood.
• Reporting potholes, noise concerns, or graffiti
• Reporting bylaw infractions and illegal dumping
• Finding out locations for recreational activities
• Requesting noise barriers
• Requesting traffic studies and handicap parking signs

We are working with 311 on developing a Riverbend specific report, which will be posted as soon as it is available
