Thank You to everyone who participated in our 2013 & 2014 business plans and budget adjustments survey. It is only by understanding your priorities that The City can work to ensure the services we provide meet the needs of Calgarians.
As you are aware, to honour The City’s commitment to continue its conversation with Calgarians, calgary.ca/ourfuture was launched on June 12, 2012. The micro site contains information and links designed to share information regarding the approved 2012 – 2014 business plans and budgets, what The City is focusing its efforts towards, how tax and capital dollars are being spent, and to create a forum for you to talk directly with The City and with each other.
The priority for engagement at this time was to discover if Calgarians’ priorities had changed since Council deliberation in 2011, if outside events had changed or shifted (e.g. economic conditions) from your perspective, and if The City was doing a good job in meeting the expectations laid out in the 2012 – 2014 business plans and budgets.
Over 2800 people visited the site when the survey was running, the majority from direct traffic to calgary.ca/ourfuture. We also have a mobile app for this site, through which 488 citizens visited. 232 respondents, both employees and citizens, completed the survey, many providing clear and specific comments.
Please visit calgary.ca/ourfuture to view the results and the next steps.
Thank you again for your participation!
