What do you think about Calgary? How can we all make it a better place to live and work?
Calgary Centre City open houses and workshops held this week
We all have a favourite street, place or building in Calgary. The Centre City Urban Design Guidelines Project wants to hear what you think makes for a great street and what could we do to make it excellent.
“Greater emphasis on design quality and public and private investment into the public realm in recent years has made Calgary’s Centre City a safer and more exciting place to be, and this is only the beginning,” said David Down, Coordinator for Urban Design & Heritage at The City of Calgary.
Now’s your chance to share your ideas on how to make our Centre City even better for everyone.
You can get involved by leaving a comment or post a photo of your favourite Centre City spot on the Calgary Centre City blog
