Building Transition Updates
In 2013, the congregation entered into discussion about the possible sale of the Ranchlands facility through an intentional congregational renewal process. In 2016, the Ranchlands building was sold to the Muslim Association of Canada, and the Calgary congregation relocated to Lion's Village at 2528 Bowness Rd. NW as a temporary location.
A Facility Planning Team has been established to help facilitate this transition, and the congregation has entered into an acquisition process as it seeks to relocate to a new space.
This purpose of this page is twofold:
The Facility Planning Team remains on schedule with Step 4: Feasibility Study in the Space Planning Phase. The purpose of this communication is to provide the congregation with an update on the topic of the Feasibility Study (presented at the March 18, 2018 Business Meeting).
For the purposes of the Feasibility Study, the Facility Planning Team has identified, selected, and contracted with professional groups in following four areas:
Members of the Facility Planning Team have met with each of the professional groups, briefed them on the details of our Feasibility Study needs, and all have agreed to assist our congregation by providing us with their professional evaluation of potential models and sites. The Real Estate group initially provided the Facility Planning Team with 26 potential sites that were each ranked by Doug, Parker, Ken, and Sam. We then averaged the scores, leaving us with the ten highest scored sites. These ten sites have now been handed over to the Feasibility Study Team, and our professional groups will tour each one, completing a Needs Assessment Questionnaire and providing us with a score for each site.
Please see the graphics below to review the projected timeline for the Feasibility Study. You can see the Facility Planning Team has met its June 30 target and is currently awaiting feedback from the Feasibility Study Team professional groups before progressing further.
Should you have any questions, please complete the “Connect with Your Owners’ Representatives” form at the top of this page, and we will respond to your inquiry as soon as we can.
