What are the plans?
The City’s Integrated Civic Facility Planning Program (ICFP) addresses identified needs for services in actively developing areas in Calgary.
With a goal to provide efficient and effective service
delivery, The City is developing a multi-use site to allow multiple users to
provide community services from one location. This aligns with Council
direction to identify opportunities for a more efficient use of land, fewer
corporate sites and reduced operating costs.
The Cornerstone Multi-Service Site development will include emergency response services, a convenient Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) drop-off and increased access to affordable housing and civic services.
The temporary Skyview Fire Station will be replaced with the permanent Cornerstone Fire Station, including a HHW drop-off. Additionally, Calgary Housing will be developing stacked townhouse-style affordable housing units.
Getting to know us?
Cornerstone Fire Station
As Calgary continues to grow, so too does the need to provide essential services. The Calgary Fire Department (CFD) is key to the safety of Calgarians and continuity of emergency response is a critical factor when choosing a location for a new hall. Rapid growth in northeast Calgary necessitated an urgency of need for a new fire hall to service communities in this area.
The safety of Calgarians and continuity of emergency response were considered critical when choosing the site design and building layout.

Household Hazardous Waste Drop-off
Paint, oil, propane tanks and chemicals don't belong in your carts. In Calgary, you can dispose of these items at City household hazardous waste drop-off locations. The Calgary Fire Department partners with Calgary Waste & Recycling Services to offer locations outside of several Calgary fire stations where citizens can safely drop off household hazardous waste. The proposed new Cornerstone fire station will contain a household hazardous waste drop-off to serve citizens in the surrounding community.

Calgary Housing plans to develop future affordable housing at this location. The City of Calgary strives to create affordable housing in all areas of the city and recognizes affordable housing as an integral part of complete communities. With one in five Calgary households struggling to pay for housing costs, this development is part of The City’s direction to ensure that low to moderate income Calgarians have access to a safe and stable place to call home in all neighbourhoods across the city.

Please note the Affordable Housing portion of this project is currently unfunded and building phase will be determined as funding becomes available.
