Name change for the Access Calgary Appeal Body

To recognize this change in operations, and as part of the Corporate branding initiative, Access Calgary was renamed Calgary Transit Access. A change of name was required for the Access Calgary Eligibility Services Appeal Board to reflect the above name change of Access Calgary to Calgary Transit Access. This item was carried.

Establishment of Residential Parking Zone BEW

This report was intended to establish Residential Parking Zone “BEW” in the communities of Windsor Park, Britannia and Elboya. The request for this zone was initiated by residents of Windsor Park Crescent SW and it is needed to address anticipated parking issues associated with commercial development at and surrounding Britannia Plaza. This item was carried.

Green Line Update

The RouteAhead update report was presented in conjunction with the Green Line update report. Administration continues to collaborate across all City Departments. The focus is on determining how the Green Line can integrate with land use and development plans while delivering high quality public transit. Recognizing that Green Line is a city-shaping project offers additional opportunities to leverage the Green Line LRT investment to advance corporate wide initiatives. City-shaping and corporate wide initiatives are under review in order to better align with all levels of government; transforming communities and promoting economic development and diversification. This item was carried with unanimous approval. This item was carried.
