Summer 2021 Capstone Update
There's been a lot of activity in Capstone already this year, from the opening of our Developer Partner's Sales Centre, to new partnerships with Access 4 Disabilities, Common Ground Garden Project, and upcoming events!

Capstone celebrates National AccessAbility week!
Capstone was proud to partner with local not-for-profit corporation ACCESS 4 DISABILITIES (A4D) to create a We Are Red Deer video, celebrating their commitment to make accessibility and disability inclusion a reality in our community, and highlighting some of the key accessibility features in Capstone
Critical design features have been woven into the fabric of Capstone to make it more inclusive and accessible. This includes raised crossings and intersections that prioritize pedestrians, Tactile Walking Surface Indicators (TWSI’s) that help the visually impaired, and wider sidewalks with separate bicycle facilities for general use.
These are just some of the initiatives in our continued commitment to create a welcoming and safe space that has helped us receive a pre-adjudicated GOLD rating as part of the process in the Rick Hansen Foundation Accessibility CertificationTM (RHFAC) Program, hosted by the CSA Group.

Common Ground Garden Project
Capstone is excited to announce a partnership with ReThink Red Deer’s Common Ground Garden Project, a new initiative created to address food security, accessibility and community connectivity!
The Common Ground Garden Project is a collaboration between 20+ individuals from diverse sectors, including representation from local Indigenous wisdom, accessibility specialists, newcomer servicing agencies, and has included the participation of the City of Red Deer’s diversity and inclusion facilitator.
This garden will be an excellent temporary use of some key lands in this master-planned community. The Common Ground Garden Project is being thoughtfully sited and designed in such a way that future relocation will be possible based on development activity within the community. However for the next several growing seasons, you will find the garden along Riverwalk near 45 Street on city-owned lands.
Small groups of volunteers will start working on the site this month! If you're interested in volunteering, or have garden tools you'd like to donate, you can email them at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (587) 377-4739.
