Safety Concerns- Traffic and Road Safety

Would you like to get your children to school and yourself to work on time every week day?

Hidden Valley Schools and Hidden Valley Residents are very much concerned with volume of vehicles and student safety.  Excessive traffic by private vehicles and school buses during drop-off and pick-up off students at three schools on Hidden Valley Drive is occuring because of limited access.  Traffic is congested also for local residents since many parents and school buses who make u-turns on Hidden Valley Drive or use alley ways not designed for through traffic. In part this problem is caused by having no right turn from Hidden Valley Drive onto Shaganappi Trail northbound.

Furthermore an increase in traffic through Hanson Ranch is caused by southbound traffic from Panorama.  Access onto Stoney Trail is only possible in a northbound direction but not southbound. Traffic therefore uses residential roads through Panorama into Hanson Ranch which further increases the danger for school children to reach their Schools on Hidden Valley Drive.

Hidden Valley Community Association has had several meetings with local MLA's and Ward Councillors advocating for a solution to this problem that will not go away.  Please contact our local MLA Calgary - Northern Hills, Jamie Kleinsteuber  calgarynorthernhills@assembly.ab.ca)for Hanson Ranch residents and MLA Calgary - Foothills, TBD  calgary.foothills@assembly.ab.ca for Hidden Valley residents to share your experiences.  Please also contact our local Ward 4 Councillor, Sean Chu  ward04@calgary.ca  for Hidden Valley residents to show your concern.

If you would like to sign a petition of support to find a solution, please contact traffic(at)hiddenhut(dot)org

Police and Community Awareness Program (PCAP)

Turn your telephone into a crime prevention tool and receive police messages through PCAP.

The Police and Community Awareness Program (PCAP) is a free telephone information service that works by automatically calling residents in Calgary and rural areas who subscribe, and playing recorded messages from the police.

PCAP alerts you to important situations such as criminal acts or requests for public assistance in cases such as missing children and other occurrences that require your attention.

PCAP calls between 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. If you are unavailable, the system leaves a message on most answering machines, or your number may be redialed after the other homes in your area have been contacted.

The information you receive from PCAP can help protect your family and home and assist the police in protecting your community.

PCAP works by improving communications between police and the community. It is an initiative of Block Watch, sponsored by EnCana Corporation, operated by the Calgary Police Service, and supported by the Federation of Calgary Communitiies.

The success of PCAP depends on your participation in this proven and powerful program. Plus it doesn’t cost a penny to protect yourself with PCAP.
