Construction on Thomson Family Park in Calgary's Beltline could begin as early as 2015
Metro News
Beltline residents got one more sneak peek at the latest designs for a new urban park recently and a chance to offer final input before the $4 million project in West Connaught gets underway in earnest. If all goes well, the city hopes to break ground on Thomson Family Park later this year, said project manager Michelle Wong. The park is so named because of a $2 million donation from a local family.

Hydroelectric history preservation with artifact
Rocky Mountain Outlook
Over half a century, the soles of thousands of shoes left their mark on one of the remaining relics of a once booming energy and electric Municipal District of Bighorn community. Even after all the years of dirt smudged stains and icy snow clumps being dragged over it, and anything else the bottom of a pair of shoes can transport, the smiling face of the Reddy Kilowatt logo, with its light bulb nose and electrical outlet for an ear, greeted Bow Valley visitors for decades — and will continue to do so.

Spot power prices drop to 15 year low, but not for most residential customers
Calgary Herald
Power prices on Alberta's deregulated spot market are the lowest they've been in 15 years, but few residential customers are reaping the full benefits on their monthly electricity bills. While the wholesale price of electricity averaged three cents per kilowatt-hour through October, November and December, most Alberta house-holders paid nearly triple that price on the retail market.

Keep building during downturn, Consulting Engineers of Alberta urge
Edmonton Journal
Alberta's economic woes have prompted the Consulting Engineers of Alberta to ask members to hold their 2015 rates for consulting services at 2014 levels, as part of a wider effort to encourage continued spending on infrastructure. In December, the association recommended a 3.3 per cent increase to 2015 contracts. But after a recent vigorous debate, board members voted unanimously to ask all firms to hold the line, CEA president Matt Brassard said.

SaskPower looks ahead
The Leader-Post
As acting president and CEO of SaskPower, Mike Marsh is looking forward to 2015, in part because 2014 was one of the toughest years for the Crown corporation in recent memory. The smart meter fiasco, which saw the power utility install more than 100,000 smart meters on Saskatchewan homes, only to have to remove all of them due to malfunctions that caused some of them to catch fire, was deeply embarrassing to Marsh, who, as vice-president of operations for SaskPower, was the corporation's point man on the smart meter file.
