Focus on safety sweeping Calgary's core

Calgary’s Centre City is vitally important. It’s where 159,000 Calgarians work at over 6,000 businesses. It is home to more than 30,000 people, 36 attractions, 25 annual festivals and 20 public parks. When the Centre City thrives, so too does the rest of the City.

The City of Calgary, with its partners at Clean to the Core and Centre City Safety Impact Team are sharing their most recent work and the impact it's making to the core at a Focus on Safety meeting. All Calgarians are invited to attend this meeting at the ConocoPhilips Theatre in the Glenbow Museum, this Thursday, June 23, at 11:30 a.m. 

“Focus on Safety meetings are an opportunity to share the work that has been done, and what we are going to do, in our Centre City around cleanliness and safety,” said Lorna Wallace, Clean to the Core Project Manager. “Everyone is invited. If you are coming for the first time, you will see first-hand the many groups working together with The City to ensure the Centre City remains a livable, thriving and caring place.”

Based on the The Centre City Plan, developed in 2007, the focus of the teams at this point are safety and cleanliness. Calgarians are already noticing an improvement in safety and cleanliness in our Centre City as reported in the first Centre City Perception Survey

This meeting's agenda includes an update on the Late Night Ride Home Stands, launched in December, part of the team’s current late night focus, along with a discussion on the outcomes of a recent initiative, the 20 Minute MakeoverClick here to see a Centre City map.
