Main streets are active urban areas that attract Calgarians to socialize, work, shop, dine, and celebrate local events. According to the Municipal Development Plan, there are currently 24 main streets across Calgary.
The Main Streets initiative is exploring meaningful growth for Calgary’s main streets in the future. The first step in this process is to gather local perspectives about main street issues, opportunities and outcomes.
Starting in November and continuing through to mid February, the Main Streets team started the discussion with main street users through a series of workshops across Calgary. The workshops provided Calgarians the opportunity to share their ideas and concerns about growth in these areas with City planners.
If you missed the workshops, join hundreds of fellow Calgarians who have shared, viewed, commented or voted on main street ideas on The City’s MindMixer account.
As a next step, information collected at the workshops will be followed-up with main street specific surveys, information sessions, and online engagement activities.
