Great Neighbourhoods make a great city
City Council has endorsed the idea of lowering speed limits. While I'm happy with this outcome, we've still got work to do to continue building vibrant, congenial, Great Neighbourhoods.
Every four years, The City creates business plans and budgets. This year is no different. This new four-year (2019-2022) budget program called One Calgary is becoming more service-focused. To do this, each department is putting forward their budget by service delivery, instead of by department.
In September of 2017, Councillor Carra was a sponsor of the Community Planning in North Central Green Lines Communities Notice of Motion along with Councillor Farrell that was approved by Council. In April of this year (2018), City Administration came forward with their report on local growth planning. What came out of this was the ‘North Hill Communities Local Growth Planning’ project.
This is a major transformation for Calgary that will have a positive generational impact and it starts with establishing the expectation that 30 kilometres an hour is the right speed for residential streets. This Notice of Motion begins the process and City Administration will need to review budget impacts, understand effects on transit in our city, and provide Council with a map of exactly what roads are in or out.
The Green Line is Calgary’s next light rail transit (LRT) line, and the largest infrastructure investment to date. The Green Line is designed to be both a transit system and a platform for development and City Shaping; it will provide efficient service and connections to destinations throughout the city, and areas where people can live affordably with access to amenities, services and sustainable mobility options.
