Re-Investing in the Neighbourhoods That Built Calgary
Great Neighbourhoods & the Budget
The Budget is the most important thing we as a city do. It drives what our neighbourhoods look like, how we’re connected, and how essential services are delivered to us all. I’m calling on you and your neighbours to tell me what your funding priorities are.
Ward 9 Traffic Safety Meeting
Did you know that The City of Calgary and Calgary Police Service host annual meetings about traffic safety in each ward?
On Monday, November 5 from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM at the Forest Lawn Community Association (4020 26 Avenue SE) the annual Ward 9 Traffic Safety Meeting will be taking place.
Improving street safety in our neighbourhoods
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
