Infographic: Investing in Inglewood and Ramsay

The City of Calgary is doing something different in Inglewood and Ramsay. With more than 20 projects under consideration or under construction, The City is investing a projected $200 million in one of Calgary’s oldest neighbourhoods to keep it safe, beautiful and vibrant.

From replacing century-old bridges to upgrading public space, implementing new transit service to building new playgrounds, there’s a lot going on in and around the city’s oldest main street.

We’ve been working hard to coordinate all of these projects in their planning and project management to ensure the best possible value to the community. We’re working across City departments and business units to find opportunity for collaboration. We’ve begun mapping out the long term construction strategy to ensure we keep business open and people moving in the area while these projects are being implemented.

While all of this work is very exciting, we know it can be overwhelming for the communities to keep track of all the work taking place in their neighbourhood. We want to make sure residents and business owners have the information they need, and the opportunity to ask questions and provide their input, so we’ve brought all these projects together under one coordinated communications and engagement program. All area projects now report in to a single resource to make it quick and easy for the community to participate in city projects. We’ve held a number of joint information sessions and stakeholder meetings to make the most of Calgarians’ time. Community members can now visit and subscribe to our email list to get the latest news on everything happening in the area.

We’re wrapping up for the summer, but will be out in the community again in the fall. Our satisfaction survey is available for another week, so be sure to let us know what we’re doing well and how we can continue to improve.

Thanks to all of you in Inglewood and Ramsay for participating so actively in your communities. Have a safe and happy summer!
