WHO IS CMLC?

Welcome home to East Village, Calgary’s most livable, walkable, playable urban village. At Calgary Municipal Land Corporation (CMLC), we have built East Village to be the place where you belong. We’ve created welcoming streetscapes and built easy connections to the rest of Calgary. We’ve designed great outdoor recreational spaces like RiverWalk and St. Patrick’s Island. We’ve established a vibrant public arts program and built a lively year-round events calendar right into your neighbourhood. We’ve restored the Simmons Building to be a gastronomic destination. And we will continue to make East Village the kind of energetic and neighbourly community that you’ll want to be part of. This password protected portal, will help keep you informed of the latest news in East Village and answer your questions, as they arise, on happenings in the community.

What is the East Village Neighbourhood Association (EVNA)?

EVNA represents the interests of the neighbourhood’s long-time residents and businesses, holds annual events including a street fair, assists with programming in the Golden Age Club and provides many other services. CMLC is an active member of EVNA, attending meetings to bring East Village residents up to date on development news and issues, ensuring long-time residents feel welcome in the rapidly evolving neighbourhood. CMLC and EVNA worked hand-in-hand to support the neighbourhood’s most vulnerable populations during the 2013 floods, which impacted the older residential towers.
