Crowchild Trail Study: process
The Crowchild Trail Study worked with Calgarians to identify opportunities to address issues today and plan for future transportation needs as the city grows. The six-phase process was consistent with the Transportation Corridor Study Policy and invited the public to participate right from the start of the study, before the project goals were established.
The diagram below provides an overview of the recommendation selection process. More information about each phase, including What We Heard Reports are available in the Project Library.

We learned from 2012 and did things differently.
In fall 2012, The City presented preliminary concepts for long-term needs of Crowchild Trail in a series of open houses to gather feedback from stakeholders and the public. We heard from Calgarians that they expected to participate earlier and more meaningfully throughout the study, before project decisions were made.
In July 2014, Council approved the Transportation Corridor Study Policy and directed us to restart the Crowchild Trail Corridor Study. The policy describes the process The City will undertake to gather and incorporate stakeholder feedback when conducting this type of study.
