Crowchild Trail Study Phase 2: Confirm project goals

Project goals developed with citizens’ input

Description: Phase 2 of the study gathered input from participants in workshops and online to develop, refine and finalize project goals. Participants were asked to provide their feedback under three key principles:

  • Maintain and enhance bordering communities.
  • Improve travel along the corridor.
  • Improve mobility across the corridor.

Engagement goal: Work with stakeholders to develop goals and measures that will define success for the Crowchild Trail Corridor Study.

Engagement opportunities were provided in three parts:

  • Part 1: Gather ideas and develop draft goals (June to July) – the team developed 11 project goals based on input at 23 engagement events in June, and thousands of ideas submitted online, at community events, and on community idea boards in and around the study area until mid-July.
  • Part 2: Refine goals (August) – the team shared the 11 project goals and refined them based on input gathered online. More than 650 people provided their feedback online from Aug. 5 to Sept. 4, 2015.
  • Part 3: Confirm goals (September and October) – the team finalized the 11 project goals based on input gathered at two drop-in sessions in September, and online until Oct. 4, 2015.

Outcome: A set of project goals that will help guide the development and evaluation design concepts as the study progresses.
