A year in review: Ward 6 residents the proudest to live in their neighbourhood
Ninety three percent of Ward 6 residents are proud to live in their neighbourhood, highest across the City in the 2015 Citizen Satisfaction Survey conducted annually by Ipsos Reid. Thank you to making your community a great place to live! Citywide, 85% of Calgarians are satisfied with their quality of life which reaches 90% among Ward 6 residents. Overall, Ward 6 residents indicated higher satisfaction with current City service levels compared to 2014, which directly corresponded with a notable decrease in investment needed for almost all city programs and services by survey respondents.

Most significantly, efficiencies from the Roads Department’s Snow and Ice Control (SNIC) last season saw an increase in satisfaction with snow removal which correlated with a significant decrease in investment desired for snow removal (49% down from 68% in 2014) and decrease in investment to spring road cleaning (19% down from 37% in 2014) by Ward 6 respondents. This year, Roads has acquired updated snow removal infrastructure as well as restructured snow clearing shifts to provide more efficiencies to Calgarians. Please visit www.calgary.ca/snow
