​​​​​​​​

The Main Streets initiative focuses on three key areas: innovation, investment and planning. To encourage a vibrant public realm, variety of retail and small business and increase local services, The City is going to make policy and land use improvements to your main street and others. Once a new land use framework is approved, City Council will review recommendations for investment al​ong the main street. We will first design the urban and public spaces, then identify potential funding to improve this main street. Innovative approaches will follow with review of parking and traffic management strategies.

Currently there are several main streets that have active projects in one of the three key areas. These include policy and land use improvements (planning) and streetscape master planning (investment) projects.

Bowness Road NW (Bowness)

The City is planning the future of Calgary’s thriving main streets. We want to discuss options for growth and land use changes through a two-part engagement process in the Bowness Road N.W. main street area. At our first session we discussed:

  • Residential and commercial development types transitioning from the main street to surrounding streets
  • How far along the length of Bowness Road N.W. should be considered
  • Where retail development is most appropriate and desired

17 Avenue SE

The proposed Southeast 17 Main Street (International Avenue) Area Redevelopment Plan aims to convert the existing Corridor Concept Plan into a new statutory plan that transitions an established community into a more transit-focused, liveable and distinctive mixed use community. The new plan aligns with the policies of the recently approved Developed Areas Guidebook (DAG), and, along with City initiated land use district redesignations (rezoning), will provide more opportunity for redevelopment in this important area.​​

33/34 Avenue SW

The City is working on two Main Streets projects in your community and is hosting multiple open houses to share project details, answer questions and collect your input.

33/34 Avenues S.W. Streetscape Master Plan
The City is looking for feedback from Calgarians who live, shop or commute in the 33 and 34 Avenues main street corridor. We want to confirm what we heard at our first open house and have conversations about high-importance areas in this corridor and how we can create a vibrant, pedestrian friendly main street.

33/34 Avenues S.W. Land Use Planning
The City’s first of a two-part engagement process will look for input from Calgarians on residential and commercial development types transitioning from the main streets to surrounding streets and where development is most appropriate and desired.

This is a collaborative process, where conversations are valuable. Please join us at one of three open houses to learn more about these projects and provide input to shape their direction.

9 Avenue SE

The 9 Avenue S.E. Streetscape Master Plan project has been underway for the past year and a concept design for this main street is nearing completion. A draft of the concept design was presented to the public for feedback in February 2018. This feedback is being integrated into a final concept design which will be presented to Calgarians in June 2018.

1 Avenue NE

The City is looking for feedback from Calgarians who live, shop or travel through Bridgeland-Riverside on the future look and feel of 1 Avenue N.E. We’re developing a streetscape master plan for this main street that will reflect the character of the street, support local businesses and build on the values of Bridgeland-Riverside.

37 Street SW

The City is developing a Streetscape Master Plan for the 37 Street S.W. corridor (Bow Trail to Richmond Road). Calgary is full of great communities and we’re investing in improvements to public spaces. Our goal is to work with the community to develop streetscape master plans that reflect the character of this main street, helps local businesses and builds on the values of the local communities. We’ll be reaching out throughout 2018, as we develop a streetscape master plan for 37 Street, and will provide you with opportunities to help shape improvements.

17 Avenue SW

The City of Calgary is investing in public spaces along 17 Avenue S.W. (Crowchild Trail to 37 Street S.W.) as part of the Main Streets initiative. We want to work with Calgarians to develop a vision for this corridor – a streetscape master plan. We’ll be reaching out throughout 2018, as we develop a streetscape master plan for 17 Avenue, and will provide you with opportunities to help shape improvements.

Bowness Road NW (Montgomery)

The City of Calgary is planning for improvements to Bowness Road N.W., through the community of Montgomery. The project includes a combination of streetscape and transportation improvements for all travel modes that will result in a masterplan that will be implemented as funding becomes available, starting in 2019. The transportation improvements will include safety and operational improvements for people walking, cycling, taking transit, and driving, and the streetscape improvements will include trees, landscaping, benches/seating, lighting and beautification.​

16 Avenue NW (Montgomery)​

We want to work with Montgomery to improve 16 Avenue’s sidewalk features, crosswalks and street corners, street lighting and safety features. We’ll be reaching out to Montgomery residents throughout 2018, as we develop a streetscape master plan for 16 Avenue, and will provide you with opportunities to help shape improvements.

Centre Street N

We want to work with citizens to improve Centre Street’s sidewalk features, crosswalks and street corners, street lighting and safety features. We’ll be reaching out throughout 2018, as we develop a streetscape master plan for Centre Street, and will provide you with opportunities to help shape improvements.​
