Name of creator
The communities of Hillhurst and Sunnyside are located in the inner-city area of Calgary, Alberta, immediately northwest of the downtown core. The Hillhurst-Sunnyside Community Association was reportedly established in 1942. In common with other community associations, it was active in organizing sports, recreational, and social activities for community residents, and as an advocacy group for the community's interests on planning and other civic issues. The Community Association lobbied heavily against the construction of the LRT line on 9A Street NW, and against land development that altered the historic quality of the area. It also operated the Hillhurst-Sunnyside Community Centre as well as a Community Information Centre.
Scope and content
The fonds consists predominantly of material reflecting the Community Association's activist period from 1972 to 1980. It includes minutes of general, Board, committee, and staff meetings; correspondence; financial records; survey reports and questionnaires; reports on the community planning process; records of the Hillhurst-Sunnyside Community Information Centre; records of social service projects; records and photographs of sports activities and social activities; the community newsletter, the Hillhurst-Sunnyside Citizen; membership lists; personnel records; architectural plans; files on other community associations and on topics of general interest to the Association; and records documenting the conceptualization and development of the Sunnyhill Housing Cooperative. Includes records documenting the construction of the northwest Light Rail Transit (LRT) line and correspondence regarding various development permits. Also includes extensive historical resources inventory documenting properties and houses throughout the community.
