Key principles of the engagement process
Throughout the Crowchild Trail Study, we will:
- Provide multiple opportunities for people to share their input in each phase of the study.
- Design engagement opportunities to collect feedback that helps inform project decisions specific to each phase of the study.
- Provide opportunities for targeted stakeholders to share their unique concerns and perspectives before broader community engagement events take place.
- Use the input gathered to influence project decisions. Where input cannot be used, we will explain why.
- Summarize the input gathered and share what we heard with the public (see the Project Library).
An engagement program designed by Calgarians
Phase 1 of the Crowchild Trail Study focused on designing an engagement program with citizen’s input.
In February and March 2015, a team of 18 Calgarians gathered together in three workshops to answer the question “How do we have the most effective conversation possible about the Crowchild Trail Corridor Study?”
Considering the online input from approximately 500 Calgarians, this 18-member “Engagement Design Team” developed a recommended engagement program for Phases 2 to 6 of the study.
The recommended engagement program was endorsed by all members of the Engagement Design Team. Learn more about the team’s work in Phase 1: Engagement Process Design of the Project Library.
