New and improved! Formerly called the Community Context Questionnaire, the CAFF form has been given a new look and feel with upgraded content. Best of all we have created an automated online comment option linked directly to City planners.
Click the online form button and fill out the required fields. Your feedback will be sent directly to The City and distributed to the assigned file manager. Fast and easy!
Clicking here will open up a PDF. Follow the steps and send the required information back to The City one of two ways: email or mail.
Please note that you only need to send one CAFF back to The City: online, mail or email. It's your choice!

The MDP contains policies that will shape how Calgary grows and develops over the next 30 to 60 years. Calgary is expected to grow by another 1.3 million people over that time which makes it important that we plan for our future.
The CTP works in conjunction with the MDP and is The City's mobility policy. The CTP web page talks about its' integrated approach to planning and provides updates on the CTP's progress. Created through the Plan It Calgary process, these plans describe the vision for a long-term pattern of growth and development in Calgary over the next 60 years and provide policies that will start to create that form of city over the next 30 years.
One of the key themes of these plans is the integration of social, economic and environmental objectives in decision-making processes. The Plan challenges all of us to thoughtfully consider how our choices, both lifestyle and public investment, affect our quality of life and our environment.
