Update August 2016
Engagement for Phase 2 of the project is now complete. The What We Heard Report is now live on the engagement page. It contains a summary of the feedback and the verbatim comments received. Phase 3 of the project will begin in the fall, so check back soon for more information on upcoming engagement opportunities.
The City of Calgary is now in Phase 2 of its Transportation Corridor Study of 50th Avenue SW between Crowchild Trail and 14A Street SW.
The corridor was reclassified as a Parkway under the Calgary Transportation Plan. Currently, 50th Avenue SW does not meet Parkway Standards. This corridor study is to determine how 50th Avenue SW can meet the Parkway standards in the future. According to the Complete Streets Guide, a Parkway focuses on blending in with natural areas.
This corridor study will identify current issues and concerns with 50th Avenue SW and will provide recommendations for future improvements to safet and access for people who walk, bike, take transit and drive.
This past Winter 2016, the Project Team went out to the community to help establish the vision for 50th Avenue SW. Now, this Spring 2016, with Project Team is presenting back potential design concepts.
Join the Project Team at a public open house on Tuesday, May 10, 2016, from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. at Central Memorial High School (5111 21st Street SW). You will have the opportunity to evaluate potential design concepts for the future of 50th Avenue SW, between Crowchild Trail and 14A Street SW.
There will also be the opportunity to provide feedback online. Once the online engagement closes, the project team will determine what concepts are supported by the community and evaluate them through a technical review. The results will be shared with the community in Summer 2016.
