Engagement Opportunities

We’re moving towards our goal to plan, invest in and create main streets where businesses can thrive and create a destination that all Calgarians can enjoy. Over the past year, we’ve been working with community members to understand the character of these main streets and plan for the future.

This fall, we will have updates to share on two phases of your community’s Main Street project:

  • Land Use Planning
  • Streetscape Master Plan

Our project teams will be sharing proposed land use changes for the main street area and revealing a streetscape concept design. We are looking for feedback from Calgarians who live, shop or commute in the 33 and 34 Avenues S.W. main street area.

This is a collaborative process, where conversations are valuable. Join us on either September 22 or 25, 2018 to chat with our project team, provide input and learn more about how you can help shape the future of your community.

The 33 Avenue SW main street runs from Crowchild Trail to 14 Street SW. It is located on the edge of the communities of Richmond and South Calgary, while the community of Altadore borders it to the south.

33 Avenue SW started as an early transportation route connecting the inner-city neighbourhood of South Calgary to the downtown core. Its growth as a main street started when settlement in South Calgary occurred with the Edwardian boom period of development in Calgary, resulting in the construction of houses, commercial buildings, and institutional buildings in this style. In 1911, the Calgary Municipal Railway streetcar line was established, which ran in a loop from 34 Avenue to 26 Avenue SW. Commercial development aligned with this route forming a central commercial district, now known as Marda Loop.

Today, the area contains a mix of modern, multi-use commercial and residential buildings, mid-century, modern-style commercial buildings, residential to commercial conversions, and historic residential architecture.
