Re-Investing in the Neighbourhoods That Built Calgary
Forest Lawn and Forest Heights Community Objectives Workshop
With the ward boundaries changing after the October 2017 Municipal Election, Forest Lawn and Forest Heights are new Ward 9 communities. We would like to invite all our Ward 9 neighbours in Forest Lawn and Forest Heights to join us for our first Forest Lawn and Forest Heights COW!
Flooding in Calgary
Flooding can occur at any time with little to no warning. May 15 to July 15 is when we receive our largest rainfalls and are most likely to experience flooding.
Understand, prepare and stay informed by knowing your flood risk and how to prepare for flood conditions.
Re-Investing in East Calgary
The 17 Avenue SE Bus Rapid Transit project will provide efficient, reliable transit from southeast Calgary to downtown. We’ve started construction on both phases of the project, and construction will be complete by the end of 2018.
Planning & Development in Ward 9
Planning & Development has many ongoing projects occuring throughout the city. These projects include amendments to Area Redevelopment Plans, amendments to the Land Use Bylaw, the development of Area Structure Plans, and Land Use Redesignations.
Community Representation Framework
The Community Representation Framework Task Force has been investigating an approach of creating Council-authorized, City-supported groups of community stakeholders called ‘district forums’.
Ward 9 & The Green Line LRT
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.
Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Network - Coming Soon!
Three new Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) routes are coming this fall and that means better connections and convenience for transit riders. The routes will fill important gaps in the primary transit network to get you where you need to go.
We need to hear from transit riders about the proposed revisions to bus routes and what that means for how you get around the city. Calgary Transit's goal is to increase connectivity and efficiency for riders.
Main Streets Program
Main streets are active areas that attract Calgarians to socialize, work, shop, dine, and celebrate local events. They are also often important transportation routes. According to the Municipal Development Plan, there are currently 24 main streets across Calgary. Main streets are important to the long-term growth of our city, and are ideal places for mixed-use development, including residential, commercial and retail development. Access to transportation options, infrastructure and amenities make these areas great places to live, work or visit.
