Calgary's Centre City
When our Centre City thrives, so does the rest of the city. That's why it's vitally important for The City of Calgary and the community to invest its support in planning and creating a livable, thriving and caring core - the vision of The Calgary's Centre Plan (May 2007). The City’s Centre City team supports projects and planning throughout the Centre City - keep reading to find out more on what is happening.
