Representing one of the largest local planning engagement efforts initiated by The City, more than 2,200 Calgarians collectively volunteered 1,335 hours of their time to share concerns, suggestions and future visions for main street neighbourhoods.
Whether attending a workshop, completing an online survey or dropping by an information session or online discussion, over the six month city-wide engagement effort, participants demonstrated that they are invested and hopeful for these areas. During these discussions, people often defined their main street by its success or potential as an important connection point for people and a model for vibrant communities.
The City has compiled a summary of the public input and local statistics collected for each of the 24 main streets outlined in the Municipal Development Plan (Calgary’s long term growth plan).
