Online Consultation: River Park, Sandy Beach, Britannia Slopes

The City of Calgary wants your input.

Calgarians are invited to take part in a moderated online discussion on the future of a popular regional park.

Public input on the online public consultation will help The City of Calgary develop a management plan for River Park, Sandy Beach and Britannia Slopes. The goal of the management plan is to make this highly used public space enjoyable and sustainable for current and future generations.

The online discussion runs from March 1 to 12 at: www.calgary.ca/riverpark.

Once registered, citizens will be able to join a discussion or create a new discussion on the
park topic of their choice. Citizens will also be able to take part in the evolving discussions using a smart phone.

The online public consultation is part of a larger public input gathering process now underway for River Park, Sandy Beach and Britannia Slopes. These three large open spaces form a popular southwest regional park located just north of the Glenmore Dam and along the Elbow River.

The public consultation for a park management plan also includes public workshops in addition to the online discussions. In May 2011, The City of Calgary Parks will draft a park management plan and post it on the project web site for public review. From there, an updated draft plan will be presented to Council’s Community & Protective Services committee on June 29, 2011.

To keep updated on this project and participate in future public input opportunities, please visit calgary.ca/riverpark.
