Active Neighbourhoods Calgary

    Dec 1, 2016

    Active Neighbourhoods is aimed at creating opportunities for citizen engagement in the planning process as well as active transportation options, with the goal of making selected communities more “liveable.” The plan is not to overhaul neighbourhoods with grand schemes, but rather to create achievable projects that will have a significant benefit in the daily lives of citizens, as identified by citizens.  Examples might include advocating for bike lanes, new green public spaces or widening sidewalks.

    The project is based on an approach piloted in four Quebec communities. The project is being led locally by Sustainable Calgary and further East in Canada by Montreal Urban Ecology Centre and the Toronto Centre for Active Transportation.
