Hasty budget cuts have led the City of Calgary to announce the closure of the Beltline and Inglewood Aquatic & Fitness Centres at the end of this year
As part of the $60 million budget cuts announced this summer, the City of Calgary is planning to close the Beltline Aquatic & Fitness Centre and the Inglewood Aquatic Centre, both staple recreation assets in the Beltline and Inglewood communities.
Of the $1.5 million being cut from City of Calgary Recreation, $800,000 is proposed to come from closing the Beltline and Inglewood centres. However, it makes no sense for the City to expect Beltline and Inglewood to shoulder more than half the entire City's cuts to Recreation.

City Council is looking to cut $60 million in services to existing communities
This past June, Calgary City Council voted unanimously to cut $60 million from the city’s operating budget to help cover the non-residential business tax shortfall due to the declining property assessments in Calgary’s downtown core. With office vacancy rates over 20%, the buildings in the downtown core have dropped in value roughly $14 billion, opening up a $250 million hole in the city’s revenues in the wake of the subsidies Council approved for 14 new communities last summer.
On Monday, the City of Calgary released an update finally acknowledging to Calgarians the extent of their new plans to delay the Downtown and Beltline portion of the Green Line and scrap much of the underground alignment that was approved by City Council in June of 2017 after years of public engagement with Calgary businesses and communities.Read more
